Issues surrounding cultural diversity have taken on a new priority for the nursing in the 21st century, engendering considerable anxiety and reluctance to openly confront many of the issues that affect the profession: the provision of culturally competent care, educating nurses to be culturally competent, and accepting nurses from culturally diverse backgrounds.
