It assembles reflections and intellectual dialogues for educators across disciplines and setting. It covers topics that reflect the authors’ experience teaching and working within this complex, multicultural community and their determination to empower Asian American nursing students within the context of higher education.
Using research, personal experiences, models, and strategies the authors strive to enhance Asian American students’ interest in higher education and to offer future practitioners the knowledge to provide culturally competent care.
