Our Pledge To End Racism

In June 2020 AMSN released a statement stating our commitment to end racism, in which there were four actions AMSN committed to undertake related to acknowledgement, engagement, advancing policy and educating nurses. We pledge to do our part to end racism. We recognize that racism harms people, health care and health. As we move forward, we invite you to join us in our pledge to end racism. We invite to share your pledge with us, to engage with us in committing to do all we can do to stop racism. View the AMSN Discrimination and Violence Statement.
