Hey #nursetwitter, How many of y'all talked about racism and its effects on health ONCE in nursing school with a professor? Could be in class or outside of class, just want to know if a professor acknowledged that racism exists.
And hey #nursinged how many of you have teaching on racism explicitly included in your curriculum? Is race or racism talked about amongst faculty?
How can we address racism in nursing if we don't talk about it? If we don't name it?
Here's the lesson plan on race and racism that I put together for my MSN curriculum class:
Act 1:
1.Introduction to Race
2.Introduction to Racism
1.Describe how race is constructed and defined socially and not biologically.
2.Describe how racism manifests at the individual, community, national, and global level.
Population Reference Bureau. What Is Race?
TEDx Talks. Allegories on race and racism | Camara Jones |
Glover, J., & Miguel, K. What are structural, institutional and systemic racism? abc7news.com/6292530/
Assessment: Journal Entry:
Society has assigned a race to according to how you look. What does effect has your race had on your life? Why? How might your life have been different if you were a different race?
Act 2:
1.Introduction to Anti-Racism
1.Define anti-racism.
2.Identify antiracist actions.

Journal Entry:
How can you be antiracist in your day to day life? How can you be antiracist as a nurse?
Act 3:
1.Linking racism and health inequities
2.Manifestations of racism in nursing and medicine
3.Concrete actions that nurses can take to combat racism.
1.Describe how racism manifests in nursing in the past and present
2.Describe how racism causes health inequities
3.Describe changes that could take place in nursing to mitigate and reverse the effects of racism.

Discussion Board:
Pick one of the assigned articles or the video. Write a post of at least 500 words answering the following:
What was new or surprising to you in the article/video?
Discussion Board: What do you think you will change in your practice as a nurse now that you know more about racism and its effects? What do you think is the most important thing to change in the practice of nursing to combat racism?
Kudos to @jdillardwright and @NursingTheoryCo for pointing me to this great website with resources: nursemanifest.com/ongoing-overdu…
And shout out to @HealthEquityNP for the amazing Resources on her website! juliettegblountnp.com/equity-resourc…
Obviously this is just dipping our toe in the proverbial ocean. But I am so interested in talking more about how we can integrate recognizing racism and its impact into more of #nursinged
I am very open to feedback, this was just a night's work for me and I'm well aware some of these resources may be problematic in one way or another.
I guess I'm just that white nurse that forever is going to go around getting in people's faces about racism and I'm ok with that. I want to learn to do that well, but I'm not expecting I will ever be welcomed with open arms.

Attn: white nurses. We have to examine our motivations for doing this work of anti racism. We have to recognize we are learners and not teachers. It can’t be for our own profit. Thank you @NurseJustinRN.
For me, I got invested because my husbands life and my children’s life depends on it. My husband is Black. Marrying him doesn’t make me not racist. I need to do the work so that I don’t harm him and my children with my whiteness.
So many normalized white behaviors are harmful to Black people, Indigenous people and other people of color. It is a lifelong work that I have embarked on to unlearn these behaviors.
