Tri-County Black Nurses Association

Johnnetta Buncum, BSN, RN, CMSRN


We speak loudly and clearly about issues of quality healthcare for America's most vulnerable population. There is strength in numbers..."many voices, one message".  Membership in TCBNA, NBNA  and other professional nursing organizations provides the platform to advocate for our profession and communities at the local, state, and national level. Changes occur when we demand a voice in the political and social decision making process.

We must be willing and ready to take advantage of opportunities to change healthcare practices and influence outcomes within the social and economic construct of our every changing healthcare systems. This movement requires membership in professional nursing organizations.  Therefore, I invite you to join Tri-County and the National Black Nurses Association today.  It is a decision I have never regretted and neither will you.


Vivian Gathers, BSN, RN
