White Supremacy in Nursing and America

So the basic idea is to publish a Google presentation as one channel to distribute educational content, and encourage learners to treat it like a digital picture book. Use the controls to maximize the screen, tab through at your own pace, or let it auto-run (2 secs/slide).

Click any of the resources and references on the final page to learn more about the issues raised in the presentation.

Today's topic is white supremacy in nursing and America - specifically how some nursing and other orgs have responded to the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police.
