We want to provide an outlet for nurses to share their stories in a time of national reckoning by asking our story tellers to consider:
- How has being a nurse informed your understanding of what’s going on currently?
- How do you see your professional role interacting with the current challenges that we’re experiencing in the country?
- What is your role as a nurse in these times?
The Radical Nurses Collective and California State University, San Marcos, Ethnic Studies Program, hosted a nursing solidarity story circle on 6/11/2020. We appreciate our storytellers: Dr. Anna Valdez, Walden University, Dr. Shena Gazaway, Augusta University, Patrick McMurray of PatMacRN, Robin Cogan of the Relentless School Nurse, and Jerry Soucy of the Death Nurse, for their time and willingness to share part of themselves with us, the listeners. We recognize storytelling as both art and activism.
