The National Coalition of Ethnic Minority Nurse Associations (NCEMNA) is outraged, and calls for justice and accountability of law enforcement and institutional structures. Once again, a Black man, George Floyd, has been senselessly killed, before our eyes on national television.
As nurses, when we hear “I can’t breathe,” experience and intuition prompt us to drop whatever it is we are doing and quickly respond to a rescue situation. That is what makes the image of a police officer kneeling on the neck of George Floyd so haunting and disturbing- the story has resonated deeply.
PNAA reached a decision to cancel the 41 st PNAA National Convention scheduled on July 1-5, 2020 to comply with government and health regulations as an outcome of COVID-19 pandemic.
