As a dynamic community of medical-surgical nurses committed to a mission of providing quality patient care, we acknowledge inequity harms people, health care, and health.
Our core values have always been to dedicate, transform, collaborate, and advocate for that mission.
As organizations reap the many benefits of diverse teams, we’ve realized how a strong commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion increases the cohesiveness of those teams. This places employees in a better position to collaborate, communicate, and provide outstanding patient care.
AMSN has prioritized improving patient care and the nurse work environment through diversity, equity, and inclusion and we hope others in health care will embrace this initiative with us.
AMSN is developing a 6-module e-learning course to a larger initiative on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in nursing and health care. This initiative includes the needs of patients as well as health care providers. The certificate program covers general DEI societal and health care information, as well as five marginalized groups.
The full course will be available in the summer of 2022.
