“we are the ones we have been waiting for”

Advocacy and leadership are core principles of the nursing profession. It is with these principles in mind that a group of students from UC San Francisco School of Nursing have formed Nursing Students of Color (NSOC). This new organization aims to press ourselves, the university and, by extension, the greater health care system to live up to our professed ideals. We expect this post will be the first of several from NSOC addressing why our organization is necessary.
