A Message from ACHNE about Racial Equity
The Association of Community Health Nursing Educators (ACHNE) is committed to excellence in community and public health nursing education, research, and practice-advancing the health of populations. We understand that structural racism is rooted in long-standing discriminatory policies and must be examined and dismantled as an upstream structural determinant of health. We are committed to challenging nurse educators to develop the competencies essential for facilitating safe, respectful, and uncomfortable dialogue. We are responsible for championing awareness requisite for effective system-level transformation. As ambassadors in our communities, ultimately, our students will advance nursing practice in actionable change and collective impact for racial equity and justice.
