Black Nurses Task Force (BNTF) Report - 2022
In a groundbreaking report, the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario’s (RNAO) Black Nurses Task Force (BNTF) unveiled recommendations to tackle structural racism within nursing organizations, regulatory bodies, associations and the broader health system.
The BNTF Report: Acknowledging, Addressing and Tackling Anti-Black Racism and Discrimination Within the Nursing Profession features 19 recommendations. The task force was guided in its work by four main pillars: education and awareness building; research; advocacy at all levels; and partnership with allies and stakeholders. This report also includes information from a scoping review of the literature and results from an online survey of 205 Black nurses across Ontario.
