Racism in Nursing
An action plan to eradicate systemic racism of Black, Indigenous, and Nurses of Color.
A Catalyst and a Roadmap
Racism in nursing and healthcare is a longstanding health crisis in California that needs our attention.
As nurses, we are obligated to first address the systemic racism within our own nursing profession. Only then can we hope to adequately and comprehensively address the larger issue of racism in healthcare.
ANA\California has convened nursing and healthcare leaders to create an action plan. This document serves as a catalyst for sustainable change, as well as a roadmap to facilitate that change based on individual and organizational awareness.
