Abstract

Healthcare in the United States is not meeting the needs of its citizens. Inequality based on race and economics has been well documented in recent years. Nurses have the power to positively influence healthcare inequities and change the landscape of today’s healthcare system. Nursing education programs can be a catalyst for this change. Through the creation of supportive practices, nursing education programs can be instrumental in helping future nurses increase their awareness and understanding of culture, race, and social justice in healthcare.
