On this special episode of the Amplify Nursing podcast, we talk with Penn Nursing students Casey Cheng and Amy Xia, President and Vice President, of APANSA, the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing’s Asian Pacific American Nursing Student Association. APANSA is a community dedicated to providing support and representation for the AAPI minority population within the Penn School of Nursing.
We talk with Casey and Amy about the current state of prejudice in this country toward AAPI, the microaggressions they face in their daily lives, including during clinicians, and how faculty and staff can better provide support to students during these traumatic times.
