The promotion of these values is required in order for the quality of nursing education to be high. At this point the following question appears: how nursing education values can be protected? Moreover, the potentials of nursing…

Still, the relevant efforts are not always successful, a fact that has been made clear especially in regard to equality, as related to nursing education.
As noted above, two studies have been reviewed for exploring the level at which nursing education is able to promote the values of equality and diversity. The first of these studies, the one of Bartfay et al. (2010), shows ‘the societal perceptions and attitudes towards men in nursing’ (Bartfay et al. 2010, p.1). The specific study is based on a research developed in a university based in Ontario, Canada (Bartfay et al. 2010, p.1). The views of this university’s nursing and non-nursing students have been used for identifying the level at which men are welcome in nursing. The findings of the research on which the specific study is based lead to the assumption that men are not welcomed in nursing, a phenomenon that is intensive even at the level of nursing education. The second study, the one of Bednarz, Schim & Doorenbos (2010) focuses on another value of nursing education: diversity. Particular emphasis is given on cultural diversity and how it can impact the quality of nursing education. The specific study refers to three different aspects of cultural diversity, as related to nursing education: ‘perils, pitfalls and pearls’ (Bednarz, Schim & Doorenbos 2010, p.1). The term perils reflects ‘the issues that complicate teaching’ (Bednarz, Schim & Doorenbos 2010, p.1); the term pitfalls is used for showing the barriers that can cause delays in nursing education schemes (Bednarz, Schim & Doorenbos 2010, p.1). Finally, the term pearls reflects ‘the strategies that need to be introduced for enhancing diversity in nursing education’ (Bednarz, Schim & Doorenbos 2010, p.1). The above study proposes a plan for promoting ‘Personal Cultural Competence among educators’ (Bednarz, Schim & Doorenbos 2010, p.7). The phases of this plan are

Passing a single subject alone is not an easy feat to do; how much more the whole program of studies. As for me, reaching this far in my BS Nursing degree is the fruit of my hard labor. Being optimistic is one thing and being goal-oriented is another. I’d like to think I’m more of the second one.
It is unethical and legally unbinding for nurses to fail to meet these obligations. A positive working environment is suitable for effective discharge of duties and provision of care services to patients by
Both parties to nursing procedures (caregivers and the patients) have rights to be observed (Ginny, 2009). In this case, if the nurse chose not to fill out the incident report, there are a number of concerns that would emerge. These concerns are both
