Climate change is one of the most pressing environmental/ health challenges the world is currently facing. Nursing, as the world’s most trusted healthcare profession, play a pivotal role in assisting communities with climate change prevention activities, influencing/ contributing within their own organizations, and creating initiatives. At this crucial moment of post-pandemic recovery, nurses can take many steps to address climate change- starting with understanding the basic science of a warming planet and then utilizing the nursing process as a structure to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Given the massive scope of climate change, and the overwhelming task of taking action, this article will address what collective action looks like at the organizational level and provide resources for nurses to continue to make improvements for the next generation of the nursing profession.
