Villarruel, Antonia M.; Canales, Mary; Torres, Sara
Journal of Nursing Education, v40 n6 p245-51 Sep 2001
Focus groups with 37 Hispanic nurses who completed bachelor's or master's degrees identified barriers they faced: financial burdens, perceived discrimination, and the limitations of cultural values such as prescribed gender roles. Conversely, peer, family, and faculty supports for degree completion were also found. (Contains 33 references.) (SK)
