Abstract

The Future of Nursing Report 2020-20301 calls for nursing education to integrate the social determinants of health (SDoH) in the curriculum to prepare future nurses to take an active role in identifying and addressing health inequities. Nurse faculty and schools of nursing face multiple challenges that pose as barriers to meet this demand. These challenges include a crowded curriculum, lack of a coherent curricular framework, and a dearth of evidence-based teaching strategies to ensure that concepts on SDoH, health equity, and social justice are seamlessly integrated in the nursing curriculum.
