Less than ten percent of nursing orgs take a stand against genocide, and that's an improvement

How many nursing organizations have visibly, vocally, and actively spoken out against genocide?

Number nsg orgs (est): 500
Number nsg orgs against genocide: 38
Percent nsg orgs against genocide: 7.6%

Updated info after yesterday's post:

The numbers jumped dramatically after I learned about this - The National League for Nursing Responds to the Separation of Families at US Borders - Calls on US Government to Immediately End Family Separation. "On behalf of the 33 undersigned national nursing organizations, representing the cross section of nursing education, research, and practice, we implore the Department of Homeland Security and the overall Administration to protect the health and wellness of immigrant children...Our profession requests immediate action be taken to protect the health of immigrant children and reverse the current policy. Their young minds, their health, and their ability to thrive in the future is of utmost importance."

So, that takes us from 4 nsg orgs on record, to 37. Add in the MNA (below) for our current final - 38. Out of 500+/-.

In addition to signing the NLN statement, the National Association of Hispanic Nurses issued the following:

"At their June 19 meeting, the Board of Directors of the National Association of Hispanic Nurses unanimously directed that the following short statement be delivered to members and the public immediately via NAHN’s social media and website.

“The National Association of Hispanic Nurses does not support the current policy of separating children from their families as they seek to enter the United States without documentation.”

In addition to this short statement, NAHN will be issuing a more extensive response outlining their objection to this policy and will be posting that document on the public area of the NAHN website as well."

Also in addition to signing the NLN statement, the National Black Nurses Association issued this statement via Facebook: "NBNA calls on the US Administration to end the policy of separating children from their parents...the separation of children and parents is one of the most inhumane acts seen now and during your US Members of Congress and your local elected officials and insist that this unconscionable policy and behavior ends."

(source - NBNA Facebook)

Lastly, the Massachusetts Nurses Association (MNA) said this: "Health care professionals in Massachusetts are required by law to report suspected child abuse. What we have heard and seen happening at the southern U.S. border has been widespread, government-imposed child abuse. We have dedicated ourselves to ensuring the safety of our patients. That dedication does not stop at the door of a hospital or at the end of a shift. We are caregivers in all aspects of our lives. We are also human beings. We feel the agony of parents who have been separated from their children. We know the bottomless ache of children who cry but cannot feel the comfort of their loved ones. We call on the Trump Administration, the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, all relevant federal agencies, the U.S. Courts and U.S. Congress to act immediately in a rational and humane way to reunite these families and address this crisis.”
