•Contemporary trends in population health threaten the sustainability of current approaches to care delivery.
•Health care professionals inevitably confront social injustices in their day-to-day work.
•Nurses are ideally placed to make a critical impact on the health of populations.
•Nurse educators need to create curricula which meaningfully integrate population health.
•We outline three exemplars of innovative pedagogical approaches to spark the thinking of educators as to how they can enable nurses to make connections between practice and population health.
