Indigenous Nurses and Professional Education: Friends or Foes?
Weaver, Hilary N.
Journal of Nursing Education, v40 n6 p252-58 Sep 2001
A survey of 40 Native American nurses found that cultural content in the curriculum was limited and support for their cultural identity was lacking in nursing education. Many experienced culture shock, racist attitudes, and isolation. They found support through student groups, tribal programs, or informal peer networks. (Contains 21 references.) (SK)
