Resources for Nurses with Disabilities, Nursing Students with Disabilities, & Nurse Educators / Administrators
NOND was founded in Chicago, Illinois on April 10, 2003 during the Rush University College of Nursing Symposium titled, Nursing Students with Disabilities: Nursing Education and Practice. Five nurses with disabilities who attended the symposium Co-Founded NOND because:
Nurses with disabilities should Lead and Speak for Ourselves,
Technical Standards directed to functional abilities that present barriers to admission to nursing programs by academically qualified students with disabilities,
Negative attitudes and stereotypes directed to students and nurses with disabilities that indicate low expectations where the focus is on disability rather than on abilities,
Attitudes directed to nurses who become disabled or develop chronic health conditions after receiving their license that indicated they should retire.
A Resource Directory was initially created as a request from Rush Symposium participants at the end of the conference in 2003.
Following the symposium, in 2006 a Regional and National Internet Resource Clearinghouse (IRC) Project was funded by The Chicago Community Trust. The IRC project provided the opportunity for members of the NOND Board of Directors to offer their expertise to develop the necessary resources and strategies that will begin to address the need to accept and accommodate people with disabilities as nursing students as well as sustaining the contributions of professional nurses encountering disabilities later in their careers.
Please note that resources and contact information may change. The list is updated periodically to ensure accurate and current data. NOND has attempted to categorically include resources for nurse educators, nursing students with disabilities, nurses with disabilities, and nurse employers. We have tried to make this list as comprehensive as possible and make every effort to update the list regularly, as well as add other resources that are brought to our attention.
