Just released ahead of print – a very timely article that addresses one of the most urgent social issues of our time and how nursing can play a role in addressing the challenges. The article is titled “Transcendent Pluralism: A Middle-Range Theory of Nonviolent Social Transformation Through Human and Ecological Dignity” by Donna J. Perry, PhD, RN. Dr. Perry has sent this message for ANS readers:
Even a casual scan of daily headlines makes evident widespread global suffering. In recent weeks distressing images have highlighted the desperate plight of refugees trying to escape violence in Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq. There is an urgent need to change global conditions of injustice, violence and environmental damage. Only when these underlying conditions are addressed will we be able to achieve a sustainable health for humanity. In recent years there have been numerous scientific reports linking social conditions such as violence and social injustice to health. This summer, agreement was reached on language for a draft United Nations (UN) agreement on the Sustainable Development Goals, a new agenda for human development through the year 2030. The document, Transforming our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, will be finalized and adopted at a special UN summit in September. https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/post2015/transformingourworld
This visionary document makes clear the interdependence of multiple domains including health, peace, education and ecology. Nursing will be a critical force in achieving sustainable development over the next fifteen years. The article in the current issue of Advances in Nursing Science, “Transcendent Pluralism: A Middle-Range Theory of Nonviolent Social Transformation through Human and Ecological Dignity”, provides a framework for nurses to use in advancing nonviolent social transformation. Although it is written primarily from the context of societal issues I envision the theory as something nurses can use when working for institutional change within health care settings as well.
Working together we can truly transform the world and build a sustainable healthy global community.

I am delighted to announce the publication ahead of print of an article by Sharon McGuire, OP, PhD, FNP-BC, CTN-A, FAANP, titled Borders, Centers, and Margins: Critical Landscapes for Migrant Health. This article will appear in ANS Vol. 37:3, the July/September 2014 issue. In this article, Dr. McGuire draws on her extensive experience and knowledge of immigration to provide a critical analysis of the contemporary dynamics of migration and the health issues that relate to migration around the world. She has shared this message about her work in this area, and the background of this article:
First, I must express my surprise then pleasure that my article has been selected to be published ahead of print online. The article reflects the culmination of many years of work, the ever present encouragement of colleagues, and the desire to advance previous work. Living and working among immigrants, many undocumented, has been a great gift to my life. Coming to know these very human and simultaneously heroic, humble, hard working and wise people has inspired my work as an advocate for the last 15 years and has shaped me into the person I am.
My journey began in the mid-1970s when I relocated to California to serve as a volunteer with the National Farm Worker Ministry (NFWM), allied with the organizing efforts of the United Farmworkers’ Union, led by Cesar Chavez. In this milieu my early education began and has continued as I have become comfortable crossing my own borders of culture, ethnicity and language and spirituality. Perceiving the health care needs of farmworkers led me to take up nursing in mid-life, and work along the US-Mexico border for nine years before taking up my doctoral work where I could begin sharing my insights in and beyond the academy while spending another nine years on the border. Of course my passion had become unearthing the phenomenon of migration, especially as it related the global dynamics at the macro level, and the health and welfare of immigrants at the micro level.
Migration and immigrant health are such fluid, complex situations, and I believe are of great salience to our profession. Undocumented immigrants in particular have been identified as one of the most vulnerable populations in the country…and I would say the world in whatever country they live. This article delves more deeply into neoliberalism, the politics of detention and deportation, and the spirituality of border crossers so well explored by Daniel Groody at Notre Dame, than previous works.
I would not want to leave you off, dear readers, without knowing I have the Adrian Dominican Sisters Congregation (Michigan based) to thank, as a member, for the freedom to pursue this passion, the time and support to study, and for inspiring all of us members to social justice ministries.
Dr. McGuire’s article is available at no cost while it is featured in our “Published Ahead-of-Print” section! This article will again appear as a featured article once the July/September issue is published, but visit the ANS we site now to get this early view of this timely and important article!
