Mapping the Landscape of Anti-Racism Efforts in Nursing

Mapping the Landscape of Anti-Racism in Nursing | Read final report here

The Manning Price Spratlen Center for Anti-Racism & Equity (CARE) in Nursing at The University of Washington School of Nursing partnered with nurse leaders with skills in strategic communications to conduct a study of the views of nurses and others in acting on opportunities to reduce structural racism in the profession and in health care. The work is contracted by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The team sought to elicit the challenges they confronted and “best” and “promising” practices in this realm.

The aim of this report is to inform future grant-making and other work of the Foundation. The specific objectives of this study are to:

  1. Describe the views and experiences of nurses related to racism and equity in the workplaces in multiple domains.
  2. Identify best practices that nurses have developed and implemented to dismantle systemic racism in health care organizations.
  3. Identify actionable opportunities that could hasten nurses’ and nursing involvement in dismantling racism in health care.
