Nurses are taught to see the world in terms of systems. Of course we learn physical systems like the renal system and cardiopulmonary system, but we quickly expand to family systems and the environment. We know that health is impaired when disease or dysfunction exists in any part of the system. I am a nurse; therefore, I am involved in equity and diversity initiatives across the campus. Improving equity and increasing and honoring diversity are the “remedy” for some of our most threatening system ills.
