Home Forums Commission’s Foundational Report on Racism in Nursing Racism in Nursing Education and Practice Reply To: Racism in Nursing Education and Practice


This article was extremely informative and enlightening! Thank you so much for sharing it on this platform. It is disheartening to learn that inequalities stemming from race are still so prevalent in nursing education today. It is shocking to learn that only 1% of university deans and chief nursing officers come from diverse backgrounds. As someone who is interested in being an educator in the future, I will make sure to discuss ethics, history, racism, and how that impacts nursing today. I will also be sure to include diverse populations in my lectures. Often times in textbooks the picture of the condition is shown only on light skin. I would like to show examples of multiple races so nursing come out educated but also aware of health inequities, social determinants of health, and systemic racism.
