Nurses make significant contributions to the American healthcare system and should have knowledge of major healthcare policies such as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), particularly those nurses in leadership. More nurse leaders of African descent need an understanding of PPACA to advocate for the policy provisions in the law as it relates to social determinants of health (SDH). This paper illustrates a need for a better understanding of PPACA among nurses of African descent to promote health equity.
