Introduction: The COVID-19 pandemic has an amplified impact on vulnerable populations. Also, aspects related to health inequalities are insufficiently taught in higher education. This study aims to promote reflection in nursing students on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on vulnerable populations affected by health inequities. Methodology: A photovoice method was used. Undergraduate nursing students (Spain and United Kingdom) took and explained photographs using SHOWED models. Results: 108 students participated. Two-domain summary themes were created: The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted ethnic minorities and socioeconomically vulnerable groups, and Proposals to respond to the negative impact on ethnic minorities and socioeconomically vulnerable groups. Discussion: The students identified negative health scenarios by linking COVID-19 with aspects of work, salary, and housing of these two specific populations. Holistic actions were also proposed to protect their health. As future health professionals, they must recognize these communities and work to eliminate inequalities.
