Minorities usually do not receive the same treatment as their white counterparts. Americans have the rights to be treated equally and fairly and not be judged nor discriminated because of their backgrounds or race. As healthcare providers, reflecting on our own personal biases, being empathetic and treating patients according to their needs is paramount to their care and outcomes. The evolving roles of advanced practice nurses are becoming intertwined with the growing populace. Therefore, discrimination hinders equal treatment of patients and as nurses, we must continue to provide the human touch that is needed so as to prevent health deterioration. “Research has shown that even when racial/ethnic minorities are insured at levels comparable with non-Hispanic Whites, they tend to receive a lower quality of service for the same condition” There are various options in resolving this issue. We as nurses must start from the grass root by advocating first at a local level. We can present the need for more advanced high-technology usage, evidence-based drug treatment centres that will provide comprehensive treatments that are specially located in the poverty-stricken communities. This can be achieved if the nurses join community boards, form nurses forums, the cohort with the board of the local health institutions and write letters to local legislatures. These create avenues for APNs to become better advocators in their roles especially when it comes to the vulnerable. Another option to resolve the issue would be for the government to provide financial incentives for healthcare practitioners such as grants, awards so as to provide centres that would provide education, guidance to curb the rise of drug abuses and also to establish better facilities with high-capacity drug treatment centres.
