Anti-Racism: AMSN and MSNCB Call on Nurses to Advocate for Change

The Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN) and the Medical-Surgical Nursing Certification Board (MSNCB) are fulfilling their commitment to end racism by asking nurses to share their personal anti-racism pledges on their AMSN website pledge page. The page contains a form that encourages nurses to make – and speak about – the changes they are implementing in their practices and communities.

The pledge page encourages nurses to do their part to dismantle structural racism in health care, provide equal care to patients of all races and ethnicities, and ensure healthy workplaces for all health care providers. This initiative is one of several goals the organizations outlined in an anti-racism statement released in June.

“By taking this anti-racism pledge and actively working to address the problem of racism worldwide, medical-surgical nurses will make a positive impact for all people and communities,” AMSN President Robin Hertel, EdS, MSN, RN, CMSRN, said.

MSNCB President Antoinette Falker, DNP, RN, GCNS-BC, CMSRN, CBN, agreed that nurses’ collective resolve will help eradicate racism.

“Nurses have powerful voices, and they are highly trusted globally,” Falker said. “They can help achieve equal health care, education, and opportunities in all areas of society while also doing their part to ensure their colleagues are valued and respected members of the team.”
