National Nursing Survey: Understanding Racism in Nursing

October 12, 2021

In January of this year, OADN was invited to be an inaugural member of the National Commission to Address Racism in Nursing.

As part of the Commission’s ongoing work, we are asking OADN member programs to participate in a brief survey on racism in nursing in the workplace. Racism is defined as assaults on the human spirit in the form of biases, prejudices, and an ideology of superiority which persistently causes moral suffering and perpetuates injustices and inequities.

The survey is brief and will take approximately 6 minutes to complete. Please click the link,, to go directly to the survey. Your participation in the survey is completely voluntary and all of your responses will be kept confidential. If you have any questions about this survey, or difficulty in accessing the site or completing the survey, please contact the American Nurses Association at

This survey is available until 11:59 pm EST, October 28th, 2021.
