  • Description

    Asian American Voices offers an in-depth analysis of Asian American’s experiences in nursing education. 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.  This text is a timely resource for faculty and administrators who want to achieve diversity in higher education and to provide learning environments that stimulate all students to grow intellectually, culturally, and socially.
