Uncovering Racial Bias in Nursing Fundamentals Textbooks.
Byrne, Michelle M.
Nursing and Health Care Perspectives, v22 n6 p299-303 Nov-Dec 2001
The portrayal of African Americans in nursing fundamentals textbooks was analyzed, resulting in 11 themes in the areas of history, culture, and physical assessment. Few African American leaders were included, and racial bias and stereotyping were apparent. Differences were often discussed using Eurocentric norms, and language tended to minimize racism and emphasize assimilation. (Contains 37 references.) (SK)
