Nursing as a Health Equity and Social Justice Movement
Escalating health care costs, the COVID-19 pandemic and racial conflict have spotlighted the impact of our social and health inequities. The re-emerging focus on population health nursing and increasing nurse activism are building on nursing’s long history of addressing the social and environmental root causes of ill health. Our speaker, Dr. Nancy Rudner, discussed new opportunities for nursing to contribute to national and international goals of health equity.
