Roberta Waite, an associate professor and Assistant Dean of Academic Integration and Evaluation of Community Programs, and Stephanie Brooks, an assistant clinical professor and Chair of the Couple and Family Therapy Department, published Cultivating social justice learning and leadership skills: A timely endeavor for undergraduate student nurses in the journal Nurse Education Today. The article examines the interrelationship between multiculturalism, cultural competence, and social justice; advances an argument for understanding the relationship between social justice and student learning; and examines the need to revise nursing education to introduce social justice in pre-licensure nurse leadership education. These skills are requisite learning for nursing students, providing them with the capacity for critical thinking and advocacy skills needed for social action related to their chosen profession.
