Abstract: Advanced practice nurses are key partners in achieving health equity and are encouraged to use their advocacy skills and policy acumen in doing so. While conducting social determinants of health screenings and providing referrals are important elements in our quest to achieve health equity, meaningful advancements in this area are dependent on the enactment of public policies that yield equitable solutions.
