The Relentless School Nurse: Meet Nurse/Filmmaker Natania Abebe, RN, Whose Mission is “Advancing Nursing Through Media Representation”

The best and brightest in nursing is exemplified by the creative genius of Natania Abebe, RN, a young woman who shares her personal nursing mission to amplify the profile of nursing through media representation. Natania is a recent graduate that is using art, filmmaking, and writing to express her experience as a new nurse, a woman of color and young professional entering a working world mired in sexism, racism and antiquated views of what it means to be a nurse in the 21st Century.

Kudos to you Natania for "speaking truth to power." We have much to learn from you and your generation of nurses!
