In this Editorial, we argue that zooming out to prioritise population health in nurse education can: (1) Redefine population health as praxis; (2) Reposition nursing as a significant part of the movement to address global health care challenges; (3) Reinforce the shift from illness care to health care. In doing so we suggest that nurse educators must embrace the potential of population health to radically reshape their educational praxis and awaken students to act justly to serve populations and drive progress towards health equity.
