Nurses are expected to condemn racial inequality but are not provided with guidelines to discuss race and its impact across the profession. Evidence supports the need to revitalize the focus on racial-cultural competencies in nursing education, leadership, and care. This course provides a safe space for nursing professionals to acknowledge any shortcomings and to rethink nursing foundations as an approach to end social injustice for humanity.
At the end of this series, nurses will be able to:
1. Describe how social determinants develop out of historical and environmental circumstances.
2. List three types of racial discrimination and give an example of each.
3. Communicate an understanding of the ways in which race is socially constructed.
4. Describe the value of nursing with intentionality in education, leadership, and practice.
