It’s vital that we start training and creating more diversity in the field of nursing and healthcare in general. As the population in the U.S. becomes more diverse (currently, 37% of the U.S. population is comprised of minorities and that’s expected to increase to 57% in 2060), the need for a more diverse healthcare system is pertinent. Diversity means appreciating the differences between people and treating people's values, beliefs, cultures and lifestyles with respect. In a health and social care environment, it's important that equality and diversity are at the heart of what you do. Your patients and service users are individual people.
