Sorry you missed this informative webinar! This program may be obtained through our continuing education modules.
What is diversity and how do we handle it? From race and ethnicity to obesity and mental disorders, patients present themselves with a wide range of characteristics. As nurses, we must be aware of these diversities and reflect competency in these cultural differences, but do we?
The American Nurses Association has created a comprehensive, internet-accessible resource bank of materials related to cultural competency and diversity awareness in nursing practice in the United States. As part of this Diversity Awareness Project, ANA, with support from Pfizer, surveyed student nurses on their perceptions of diversity as a component of their academic training and the role it plays in their future in professional nursing.
Be among the first to learn what’s inside the ANA Diversity Awareness Project and the results of two national surveys of nurses! Our expert speaker, Jacqueline Mosley, MPH, MSN, ACNP-BC, RN, has led the American Nurses Association project on diversity awareness and will provide significant insight on how to navigate this important nursing practice issue.
The objective of this webinar is to learn about patient diversity and the resources available to help develop better diversity awareness and cultural competency in nursing practices.
The content of the webinar will define diversity; review resources available to develop better diversity awareness and cultural competency; outline results of recent surveys on diversity awareness; and provide scenarios to create awareness of diversity issues.
