Amplify Nursing: Season 4: Episode 06: Hafeeza Anchrum

Today we talk with Dr. Hafeeza Anchrum, a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Penn Program on Race, Science, and Society (PRSS). Curious about the history of nurses that shared her experiences, she recently completed a doctoral degree capturing the oral history of black nurses and their struggle for equality during the civil rights movement. Growing up in Birmingham, Alabama, as a child of a mother of the civil rights movement, Dr. Anchrum understood the need to preserve these stories due to a scarcity of historical scholarship focused on black nurses. We talk with Dr. Anchrum about her early experiences in the profession, the inequities baked into the education system, and who gets to tell the history of nursing, what is being taught, and whose work is celebrated.

Amplify Nursing: Season 4: Episode 04: Ravenne Aponte

On the next episode of the Amplify Nursing podcast, we talk with Ravenne Aponte. Ravenne is a doctoral student at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing in the Barbara Bates Center for the Study of the History of Nursing focusing her research on the history of black nurses. Ravenne started her educational career with a Bachelor of Arts in African American Studies with a minor in Health Disparities and then received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, working as a Pediatric ICU nurse. It was the combination of these experiences that lead to her interest in nursing history and workforce diversity that ultimately lead her to co-create the Nurses You Should Know (NYSK) project. Nurses You Should Know, is a social media and digital campaign whose goal is to elevate the stories of nurses of color and to make their impact more widely known. We talk with Ravenne about how her educational, clinical, and life experiences contributed to the work she does today, the disconnect between nursing history and practice, and how she is using the NYSK project to highlight the work nurses of color have done - and are doing - to contribute to the nursing profession.
