The University of Washington Creates the Center for Antiracism in Nursing

Recognizing that nurses play a central role in and hold major responsibility for the health of individuals and communities hit hard by historic racial inequity, the University of Washington School of Nursing is launching the Center for Antiracism in Nursing.

Among the areas the center will explore are:

  • Cultivating antiracist teaching practices, academic curriculum, and professional development
  • Promoting community-driven and partnered research
  • Supporting students from underrepresented and historically excluded groups
  • Applying antiracist principles to clinical practice, organizational operations, and health-related policy

The long-term vision for the center is for it to serve as a nationally recognized hub that transforms nursing training, practice, and research as well as influences health and public policy in ways that are guided by antiracism as a fundamental principle.

“There is much work to do to become antiracist, not just as a society, but as a school, a university, a profession, and a community. As the cornerstone for healthcare and advocates for the communities they serve, nurses are in the ideal position to do this work. The need to end racism is long overdue and nurses must do their part,” said Azita Emami, executive dean of the University of Washington School of Nursing.
