As nurses, nurse educators, and nursing leaders, the UCLA School of Nursing is deeply concerned about the impact today’s Supreme Court ruling will have on the health and well-being of women across the country. As an educational institution dedicated to advancing health care for all, this ruling is counter to our beliefs as well as the University of California’s mission and values, and will directly limit nurses ability to provide safe, patient-centered care. While this decision is not expected to affect women’s reproductive rights in California, UCLA Nursing stands with our colleagues across the country and will continue working to make high-quality nursing care available to all.
