Marcus Henderson, MSN, RN

As a “nurse’s nurse,” Marcus Henderson, MSN, RN, is an individual to watch as he continues to hone his voice and presence on behalf of our coveted profession, all while working on his PhD. He is a lecturer at Penn School of Nursing in the Department of Community Health Nursing; he is working on his PhD in Nursing Science; is a member of the ANA Board of Directors; and sits on the National Commission of ANA to Address Racism in Nursing.

Nurses are seen as trusted advocates for health and social justice; however, we also share the blame for the widespread health disparities and inequities impacting our communities. The nursing profession has been complicit in perpetuating racism amongst ourselves and beyond. Our efforts to transform the profession, address racism, and advance equity call us to look inward at our profession to sustain the most outward impact. By taking accountability and action, we can forge the right path forward toward a more inclusive, equitable, and antiracist profession.

  • Describe the impact of racsim in nursing.
