An assessment to eradicate racism in nursing.
Racism in nursing is a public health crisis. We help you uncover barriers so you can focus on solutions.
Discrimination impacts all aspects of life, including mental and physical health, career and employment, education, housing, and the justice system.
As nurses, we are obligated by our Code of Ethics to first address racism within our own profession, so that we may address the larger issue of racism in healthcare.
During early discovery, we found nurses encounter four main barriers to eradicating racism in nursing:
1. LACK OF SUSTAINABLE CONVERSATIONS
2. LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY AND CONFIDENCE AMONG REPORTING SYSTEMS
3. LACK OF AWARENESS AND UNIFIED STANDARDS AMONG DECISION-MAKERS
4. LACK OF DIVERSITY AMONG DECISION-MAKERS

Meet Our Workgroup
In June 2020, ANA\California convened an original group of nine ethnically diverse nursing and healthcare professionals to address systemic and institutionalized racism. Adverse to participating in ‘just another conversation’, our workgroup set out to develop an assessment that would create sustainable change.
To remain silent is to be complicit.
The responsibility is on you. What will you do to eradicate racism in nursing and healthcare?
