Bland talked about the significant presence of African American nurses throughout the course of history, including a few famous celebrities. She also discussed the growing need for nurses with the increase in retiring baby boomers and that nurses come from all walks of life and backgrounds, but most generally carry the innate sense of compassion and the desire to care for others.

Note: Tamara Bland is a professor and the Chair Person for the BSN Program. Fox News wrongly depicted her as the Dean of Nursing.
