Using Social Justice to Teach Policy, Advocacy and Scholarship in a DNP Program
Although ethical content is required for all levels of nursing education, it frequently gets short shrift. Social justice is the branch of ethics that addresses the justice of relations between groups, such as populations, programs, policies and organizations. Students also sometimes find ethical content too far removed from “real” nursing, not clinically focused enough, and social justice even farther removed. In this session, we will review what we know about the challenges of teaching social justice and policy in the Frontier DNP program.
