Trusted Health and the Capitol City Black Nurses Association (CCBNA) are proud to present: “Shift[ing] Forward” — a week-long virtual event series set to educate, inspire, and connect nurses. From nursing careers beyond the bedside to tools for anti-racist allyship in healthcare, Shift[ing] Forward is all about bringing the nursing profession forward, together.
