  • Description
  • Details

Transforming Nursing Education is a vital and timely book that will help nurse educators, administrators and graduate students recruit, educate and graduate culturally diverse nurses for an increasingly diverse population.

Institutionalized racism pervades almost every aspect of our society, and the field of nursing is no exception. The problem is especially pronounced in nurse education. We have known this for years, but little has been published on how to change the system.

Complete with case studies of multicultural nurses, this book does the following:
* Addresses barriers to success for nursing students from culturally diverse backgrounds in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand
* Features pedagogical strategies to help linguistically diverse students succeed in clinical settings
* Provides assessment practices that eliminate cultural and linguistic biases
* Presents initiatives for developing the leadership skills of culturally diverse students
* Contains detailed case studies of multicultural nurses and students
* Includes recommendations and questions for dialogue at the end of each chapter

With this book, educators and administrators can begin to forge through the obstacles institutionalized in their nursing educational systems, and ultimately, see a more culturally inclusive educational environment.
