Offering a Path to Success for Everyone: Creating an Inclusive Environment in Nursing Education 

Christie Cavallo, MSN, RN, EdD(c), CNE, CNEcl | United States of America 

Inclusion is the practice of providing equal access to opportunities and resources to those who might otherwise by excluded or marginalized.  Students in our nursing education classrooms are in danger of being excluded due to many factors: poverty, race, religion, sexual preference, nationality, disabilities, culture, language, previous education, ideology, need to work, etc.  It is our responsibility as nurse educators to purposefully create an inclusive learning environment in nursing education so that everyone we teach has a path to success.

Sharing Session: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Nursing Workforce

Brigit M. Carter, PhD, RN, CCRN | United States

This sharing session will involve a microlearning lesson on this topic followed by small group discussion. The Future of Nursing report, Charting a Path to Achieve Health Equity (2020-2030), recognizes that the ability to address health equity requires the ability to strengthen the diversity of the nursing workforce and their knowledge around social determinants of health. There are multiple strategies that must be developed to address policies and practices that perpetuate a lack of inclusion within the field of nursing. It is the role of the nurse educator, nurse scientist and nurse clinicians to address barriers and create pathways to nursing.

What Do We Teach Our Daughters? Nurses, Women, and Prosperity

Nurses, 90% of whom are women, and women in general, comprise the foundation of healthcare within many communities. They provide care and sustain communities through challenging and prosperous times. Their daughters often follow in their footsteps with knowledge learned from their mothers. Yet access to resources and information about resource management, crucial to economic empowerment/prosperity for women is frequently not provided or taught, generation to generation. To mobilize transformative leadership within communities based on gender equity we must ensure that women have access to resources, as well as the knowledge and tools critical to their effective management.
