We are an informal collective of nurses, at all levels of practice, bonding together to create safe and energetic spaces for engagement in the struggles for liberation, justice, and healthful communities. Welcome. We are planning a Rebellious Nursing CONFERENCE coming up on September 27-29, 2013, in Philadelphia, PA. REGISTER HERE!
The conference will be an opportunity for nurses and non-nurses alike to build community and solidarity, share skills and wisdom, find mentorship/peer support, develop ongoing creative projects, and honor nurses past, present, and future who have rebelliously fought for the health of their communities all over the world. We seek to include all nurses, other medical care providers, and allies in our organizing on equal footing, by confronting what divides us. We seek to create a world where all people receive and have a say in competent, compassionate, and respectful care in their communities. We envision a world where caregiving is a communal activity and seek a future where we all contribute according to our abilities, and everyone receives care according to their needs.We are committed to acknowledging and addressing privilege and health disparities along race, class and gender lines in order to understand the ways that these forces impact and inform every aspect of our work. Our intention is to bring awareness to these struggles when interacting with our patients, colleagues, and communities, knowing that awareness brings action, support, and change. We want to work toward a healthcare system that is accessible to all people.
