Creating Support Systems for Our Students
Mentoring is an essential ingredient for career success and it promoted greater inclusion for women of color in the healthcare field. The need for greater minority representation in nursing as the national population becomes more diverse is well documented. For example, nurses that speak the same language, understand the culture, values and beliefs of their patients may provide better care (IOM: 2002, 739). Increasing the potential for underrepresented minorities to enter a nursing career.
Diversity in Nursing gives patients robust and meaningful care
There is a well-documented need for greater minority representation in nursing as the national population becomes more diverse. It is important to have a racially diverse nursing workforce because nurses who can speak the same language, understand the culture, values, and beliefs of their patients may provide better care (IOM 2002, 739). Increasing the route for underrepresented minorities to enter the nursing workforce will address the health care disparities that plague our healthcare systems.
