In 2021 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) declared racism a serious threat to public health (CDC, 2021). As the largest professional group in the healthcare system, nurses can improve equitable healthcare and reduce healthcare disparity in the United States (U.S.). Recent statements by the American Nurses Association (ANA) public statements (2018) and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) (2021) essentials of education of undergraduate and graduate nurses calls for more explicit work towards advancing antiracism efforts. There is a need to develop structural competence to address racism in education, policy, and practice. While attention to antiracism has increased recently, antiracism pedagogy in nursing education is in its nascent stage. This paper critically examines anti-racist pedagogy in nursing education and discusses how nursing educators can integrate anti-racism pedagogy in nursing education.
