ANA-Illinois is proud to present the webinar program: Diversity in Academic Nurse Leadership; A Research Study

The presence of barriers to black nursing faculty has been documented in the literature. The purpose of the study was to explore the barriers to Black nurse leaders that results in their under representation in academia in the State of Illinois.
