Platt College Participates in the Colorado Council of Black Nurses Golf Tournament

On Saturday, August 22, The School of Nursing at Platt College participated in the Colorado Council of Black Nurses, Incorporated golf tournament and annual scholarship luncheon. 

A portion of the proceeds benefited the Scholarship and Educational Initiative Programs to help fund students considering the field of nursing.  Platt College's team, (pictured L to R) Aaron Roomzani, Miller Latvala, Team Captain Steve Basler, and Hannah Basler, finished first place in the tournament.  Participant Steve Basler, husband of Vice President of Academic Affairs-Dr. Julie Basler, commented "our team is happy to support the first golf tournament as a way to support the field of professional nursing in Colorado.  Being that my wife is directly involved in helping to create a diverse learning environment for nursing students, it's always a pleasure to play golf knowing that participating helps fund scholarships for many deserving applicants who apply to nursing schools throughout the Denver-metro area."

The Colorado Council of Black Nurses, Inc. (CCBN) founded in May 1973, as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit professional nursing organization, whose mission is to provide health education, promote and facilitate optimal care and access for all persons regardless of race or social-economic status. Another, main objective of CCBN is to increase the presence of minorities into the healthcare industry. Mentoring and providing scholarships to nursing students enhances our mission of providing culturally competent care.

Since CCBN’s inception, we have been involved in promoting community health education, prevention as well as wellness activities and programs. CCBN provides health screenings and workshops on diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and disorders as well as sexual responsibility and infectious disease awareness.

In, 2010 CCBN became a charter member of the National Black Nurses Association, Inc. and with the partnership come a new name; The Eastern Colorado Council of Black Nurses (ECCBN). The collaboration and partnership gives Eastern Colorado Council of Black Nurses additional influence for legislation and policy changes that affect the health and well-being of minorities.
