National Organization of Nurses with Disabilities

The National Organization of Nurses with Disabilities (NOND) works to promote equity for people with disabilities and chronic health conditions in nursing through education and advocacy by:

* promoting best practices in education and employment;
* providing resources to individuals, nursing and disability organizations, and educational and healthcare institutions;
* influencing the provision of culturally responsive nursing practice; and
* creating systemic improvements.

NOND was founded in Chicago, Illinois on April 10, 2003 during the Rush University College of Nursing Symposium on Students with Disabilities: Nursing Education and Practice. The Resource Directory was initially created as a request from Rush Symposium participants at the end of the conference in 2003.
