What People Are Saying

A valuable and worthwhile learning experience

Robyn - Nurse Practitioner

The course was an excellent continuing education opportunity and time well spent. The citations and resources are extensive (equal to a semester college course). I enjoyed the self-paced learning platform, engaging videos, and self-reflection opportunities. Juliette Blount, ARNP, is a skilled teacher who connects the history of racism to present-day healthcare equity challenges while providing skill-building opportunities for clinical conversations. In my experience, finding a CEU course that provides this much impact is rare. I highly recommend this course.

Excellent title! Few courses bother to define

Patricia - Nurse Practitioner

The definitions alone should stimulate thinking and reconstructing world views. The curated resources include links that are broad-ranging in source and uniformly well done. The course is taught with expertise and delivered with compassion for the difficult work involved in reflection and change pertinent to racism and implicit bias.

The course for all healthcare providers!

Barbara - Nurse Practitioner

When I started this course, I did not expect to necessarily learn a lot of new concepts as I felt reasonably well versed in this topic, but I was wrong. I did learn a lot, and I can't wait to dive into some of the additional available resources. This is really a journey into knowing yourself and how that translates into our work with our patients and the communities in which we work—highly recommended!

Engaging and thoughtful course on bias in healthcare

Eddie - Nurse Practitioner

This informative and thoughtful course can start the process of identifying our own biases and why this affects our ability to see and care for others. It provides a preliminary understanding of concepts of race, social determinants of health, and health equity. I recommend this course to anyone open to learning more about improving their own healthcare work.

Eye-opening and enlightening

Barb - Nurse Practitioner

Juliette Blount is an exceptional educator, and I have learned so much! She breaks down this complicated and potentially emotionally triggering topic, making it accessible, informative, and actionable. I appreciated the historical context, much of which I was unaware, and the resources available in each chapter. Quizzes and time for reflection personalized the course and made it much easier to apply what I learned. I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in providing equitable healthcare.

Very Comprehensive, Thorough, and Much Needed Course

Juliette G. Blount, The Health Equity NP, hit the ball out of the park with this course! She delves into the historical roots of race in the United States.
