NOND is a grassroots organization where for the past eleven years the members of the all-volunteer board of directors have worked to provide support for a growing community of nurses and students with disabilities. NOND has achieved some remarkable milestones in 2014.

Your Charitable DONATION HAS Made the Difference!

This policy roundtable was the result of the NOND Alliance with ODEP. Other sponsors included the US Department of Labor Education & Training Administration (ETA) and the US Department of Health and Human Services Health Resource Services Administration (HRSA). National nursing organizations, nurse educators, employers and numerous Federal government agency representatives participated and discussed how to reduce barriers for people with disabilities who want to become nurses or other allied healthcare professionals, reduce challenges students with disabilities face while enrolled in educational programs, and assist nurses who become disabled after licensure who want to remain in the workforce or return to work.
