McNaughton, Diane B.; Hindin, Patricia; Guerrero, Yvonne
Journal of School Nursing, v26 n6 p430-435 Dec 2010
Mexican immigrant mothers and their children encounter many stressors as they adapt to life in the United States. This article reports a secondary data analysis from a school-based home visiting program focused on assisting Mexican immigrant mothers and their children develop problem-solving strategies in dealing with stressors. Data were abstracted from home visiting records to determine the types of problems Mexican immigrant mothers chose to discuss with nurses. Nine categories of problems were developed from the data. Problems most frequently identified by mothers were family health concerns and access to health care, parenting and financial concerns. Findings and implications for school nursing practice are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
