Description of RA1:
In this module, we looked at the evolution of the nursing profession and how it relates to the continued issue of achieving a culturally diverse workforce. Despite our progress in moving toward a culturally diverse nursing workforce, efforts are needed to achieve nursing workforce diversity to meet patient care needs. The report produced by the Sullivan Commission on Diversity in the Healthcare Workforce (2004) provided a framework from which one can understand nursing workforce diversity issues. In particular, it provided a way to systematically review issues surrounding the historical context of nursing workforce diversity, why increasing workforce diversity is important, how we might achieve a more diverse workforce and how it may be paid for, and who is accountable for achieving the diversity goal.
