Purpose: The aim of this manuscript is to embolden nurses to engage in policy that promotes diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging to advance health equity.
Background: It uses the Future of Nursing Report 2020-2030 to acknowledge the impact of structural racism and the need for a more equitable, just, and fair society.
Discussion: It also recognizes that nurses must harness their power and political will, to change and strengthen policies, so all nurses can practice to the full extent of their education and license.
Conclusion: A case study of the response to COVID-19 in one underserved community is included to illustrate policy in action.
