We were the first to call out Kentucky for forcing every nurse to take insulting woke training. Now the Kentucky Board of Nursing is trying to cover up its actions, even though it hasn’t actually changed. Either it’s afraid, or it knows what it’s doing is wrong. Either way, the state’s nurses and citizens need answers.
Here’s the backstory. Earlier this year, the Kentucky Board of Nursing mandated that all nurses take training on so-called “implicit bias.” Implicit bias testing is a discredited concept that accuses people of being racist based on their skin color. Yet woke activists demand it because it spreads the falsehoods they want everyone to believe.
The Board went even further by recommending the course provided by the Kentucky Nurses Association. The course is a master class in divisive and discriminatory propaganda. It tells nurses that “implicit bias kills,” and that white privilege is a “covert form of racism.” It even describes how white nurses “contribute to modern-day lynchings in the workplace.”
We called out this insulting and inappropriate training on September 30. A month and a half later, the board removed the recommendation from its website. That’s right: The Kentucky Board of Nursing is trying to pretend like it never told nurses to sit through training that all but accused them of being part of the KKK.
Why did the board remove it? Who does it think it’s fooling? Most of all, why does it still mandate that nurses take implicit bias training at all?
It’s bad enough that the Kentucky Board of Nursing is trying to hide its own woke bias. It’s even worse that it doesn’t have any plans to change.
