Abstract or Summary

Multiple factors shape health and wellbeing, often compromise flourishing, and require complex responses. In Aotearoa New Zealand, such responses are framed by diverse viewpoints related to concepts of health justice, fairness and equity, which influence the delivery of nursing practice and education. Uncertainty about the knowing that nurse educators bring into this space, and how they convey this to students, potentially compromises learning how to work effectively to improve wellness for individuals, families, wha nau and communities. This qualitative inquiry will explore how nurse educators understand and convey societal and political knowing when working with undergraduate nurses, in academic and clinical settings. Based on a conceptual framework developed from the literature, and employing a critical constructivist methodology, the analysis will consider how meaning is made and communicated in one undergraduate nursing degree programme. The overall goal is to augment patterns of knowing and pedagogy that are foundational to undergraduate nursing programmes.
