Health Equity

No one knows more about their patients than nurses. We are the ones who are most tuned in to the ups and downs in their lives, how they live, what they can (or can’t) afford, who they do (or don’t) have to lean on for support. We are the ones who are best positioned to understand the obstacles to good health that create health inequities—poverty, discrimination, and their consequences, including powerlessness and lack of access to good jobs with fair pay, quality education and housing, safe environments, and health care.
