Diversity In Nursing

Institutional Affiliation



In clinical settings, nurses play a crucial role. The nurses not only provide care to the
patients but also advocate for the rights of the patients. They collaborate with healthcare
professionals to effectively perform treatments and procedures. Kellett & Fitton (2017) highlight
that nurses are always on the frontline when providing care to patients. They are involved in
managing the physical needs, preventing illnesses, and treating patients. Ideally, nurses monitor
the patients and record any information that will help in their treatment. However, with current
changes in the country's demographic pattern, the need for diversity among nursing professionals
and settings is growing. Currently, nurses must gain the skills needed to offer care to patients
from diverse cultural backgrounds.

Statement of the issue
Nursing professionals have to encounter huge problems in the 21st century. They face a
challenge from the aging workforce, poor working conditions, mandatory overtime, shortage of
nursing population, and increased diversity (King, 2020). With growing the level of aging



populations and diversity, the demand for nurses has grown extensively. Currently, the US faces
a shortage of nurse professionals, and those available are forced to work for longer shifts.
Compared to other problems, diversity presents a huge challenge to the nursing
profession, and the response of nurses to diversity will determine the quality of care delivered to
patients. According to the recent US census statistics, the population of the minority continues to
grow in the country. With the country's changing demographic characteristics, the nurses must
find to provide patient-centered, safe, and quality care. In so doing, the nurses will provide
ultimate care to the patients, improving their satisfaction.
In the 21st century, the US population is becoming more diverse. With the growth of
globalization, the US is attracting people from different corners of the world. Levitan (2018)
highlights that growth in diversity presents various opportunities and drawbacks. In nursing,
diversity encompasses religions, age, ethnicity, social-economic status, disability, sexual
orientation, nationality, and physical characteristics. Nurse professionals encounter people from
different cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations, gender, race, ethnicity, etc. With the increase
of diversity in the country, nurses face ethical challenges when offering care to patients of
different cultural backgrounds.

Evidence supporting the issue



In the United States, diversity has been gradually increasing. According to King (2020),
the United States is ranked as the most diverse country compare to others. As of today, more
than 40 million adult Americans were not born in America, which accounts for about one-fifth of
the entire population. The increase in the population of immigrants in the country has changed
the US demographic patterns. The foreign-born population in the US reached 44.8 million in
2018. With the reform of US immigration policies, the population of immigrants has
dramatically risen. According to Pew research, the immigrant population rose from below five
percent to around 13.7 percent (Kellett, ...

Really great stuff, couldn't ask for more.
