Welcome to cleveland council of black nurses!

The Cleveland Council of Black Nurses is currently a visible and viable force in nursing in Northeast Ohio since 1971. Our commitment to the recruitment and retention of Black students in nursing programs, to the career mobility of black nurses and to the health of the black consumers is our primary goal.

More than ever the survival of all nurses is being influenced by economic and political factors. Furthermore, as different interest groups attempt to control nursing practice, Black nurses must join with their colleagues to plan strategies to counteract these forces.

CCBN Is Committed To Improving The Quality Of Life By:

* Building consumer knowledge and understanding of healthcare issues.

* Educating and mentoring registered nurses, licensed vocational/practical nurses, nursing students and retired nurses.

* Facilitating the professional development and career advancement of nurses in emerging health care systems.
 

"As President of CCBN, during 1995-1999, I felt privileged to drive the organization forward in its quest for national engagement, community awareness and health education. CCBN gained the support of local health care organizations. We also worked with community organizations such as Urban League, Cleveland Public Health Department, Greater Cleveland Health Education Service, Cleveland Medical Association and offered Career Day presentations to middle and high school students. A huge focus was place on the infrastructure of the organization. We gained a presence in the city which holds to the present time. We grew as an organization and demonstrated sustainability and established many healthy partnerships. As we grew as an organization, young nurses joined us and made us stronger. The evidence holds true today." CCBN Past President Dr. Catherine Roscoe-Herbert
