This issue, focusing on "Health Equities," affirms the conviction upon which many nurses historically have built their practice - a conviction that social inequities have profound health consequences. The articles in this issue add to a growing body of literature that provides depth and breadth to expand nursing’s disciplinary perspective on social justice as central to our mission.
