Diversity in Nursing: A select bibliography:


Although a newly assigned area, I have found several books on diversity in the US as well as outside of the US. This bibliography is a work in progress and definitely not exhaustive. Some of the keywords in these books include migration, immigrant, Jewish, Appalachia, Africa, women, China, values, cultural care diversity, & Navajo.
