I like your post and your augment. Although you have claimed not to have witnessed
racial disparity cases, it is a fact that healthcare providers are not likely to provide effective
treatment to the blacks compared to the whites. Black patients are not expected to receive the
same quality of healthcare as their white counterparts. In this regard, the healthcare provider's
disparity can be noted by looking at the healthcare providers who are not willing to prescribe the
most effective form of treatment to the racial minorities (Rivara & Fihn, 2020). The argument
that older men are disrespectful to female nurses or that some patients have a negative mentality
towards certain healthcare providers are only used to perpetuate racial biases against people of
color. These biases causes the people of color to get inferior healthcare services. The racial
preferences are confined to the healthcare providers and other staff who harbor negative attitudes
toward some racial groups. Therefore, policies should be put in place to address the racial biases,
which is the route causes all the challenges that cause people of color to get inferior healthcare
services.

I agree with you that increasing workforce diversity in nursing is likely to reduce racial
and ethnic diversity. However, this may not end the disparity completely because it does not
mean that nurses from minorities will work to eliminate healthcare disparity. It is unlikely that
the nurses from the racial and ethnic minorities will be distribute equitably to offer services to
the minorities. It is also unlikely that the nurses and the patient are of the same race or ethnicity
will positively influence the healthcare outcome. Further, it is not clear whether diversity will
promote trust and willingness of the minorities to seek the services of the minority nurses (Yaya
et al., 2020). I also agree with you that a variety of the workforce should be done at all levels and
that nurses from the racial and ethnic minorities should be fully involved. There is also a need to
create and disseminate the evaluation measures on how dissemination contributes to reducing
healthcare disparity. There is also need to ensure that recruitment is based on qualification.
