I was moved by "Speaking Out on Social Justice" (Viewpoint, August). After teaching nursing students about congestive heart failure and Erik Erikson's stages of psychosocial development, I instill in them the idea that nursing doesn't stop after we go home.


Yes, politics is our business-in the hospital, in nursing homes, in patients' homes, on Capitol Hill. I want my students to feel a sense of responsibility. We have a great opportunity now to take charge of issues ranging from health disparities to gender-based violence. We must act!
