Event Details

Diversity enhances excellence and innovation. Including diverse individuals who are also different thinkers because of their lived experiences, can increase the breadth and depth of nursing research and clinical inquires. A diverse and inclusive team can ultimately improve the scope and approach to problems that affect all corners of nursing and patient populations. Nurse leaders should prioritize nursing strategic goals that foster a culture that prioritizes and sustains diversity at all levels of the nursing workforce. Diversity and inclusion should penetrate the pipeline for nursing recruitment, mentor and mentees, nurse educators, nurse scientists, nursing leadership, organizational committees, national organizations, and advocacy in both the state and national policy.


ONL NJ is honored to welcome two dynamic nurse leaders and researchers whose work has been focused on to advancing diversity through research.


Charlotte Thomas-Hawkins, PhD, RN, FAAN, Associate Dean, Nursing Science, Associate Professor and Director, Center for Healthcare Quality of Nursing Science will discuss her initial and ongoing research from a 2020 survey of 800 nurses working in acute care hospitals in New Jersey. Participants completed online questionnaires that studies indicators of emotional distress, COVID-19 worry and concerns, workplace racial climate, workplace racial microaggression experiences and demographic information. Based on her findings, Dr. Thomas-Hawkins will share implications and recommendations for the nursing workforce.


Ophelia M. Byers, DNP, APRN, WHNP-BC, NEA-BC, CPXP, CDE(R), Chief Nursing Officer, Overlook Medical Center & Associate Chief Nurse Executive, Atlantic Health System will share the research the American Nurse Association (ANA) is conducting through the National Commission to Address Racism in Nursing (the Commission). The Commission is examining the issues of racism within nursing nationwide and aims to describe the impact on nurses, patients, communities, and health care systems with a goal to engage all nurses to confront systemic racism.


Please join ONL NJ for the 19th Annual Research Day, where the values of advancing diversity in research, scholar and practice will be explored along with approaches to achieve the advancement.
