Sarah Ailey, RN, PhD
Board Treasurer, Executive, Finance Committee Chair

Sarah has been a Board Director with NOND for the past five years.
As the mother of an adult son with disabilities, I can remember many instances of insensitivities from health care professionals. As a nurse educator, I have known of or heard about many instances of people with amazing talent and perspective who have faced one barrier after another to entering nursing. I view nurses with disabilities as part of diversity in nursing, making our profession as a whole more capable of providing health care in a diverse society. Being involved with NOND allows me the opportunity to work on reducing those barriers and opening our profession to many amazing people who will make nursing better.
