From the Paper:

"In a qualitative research study, Amaro, Abriam-Yago and Yoder, examine several major issues concerning nursing education in the current environment. Their study, entitled "Perceived
Barriers for Ethnically Diverse Students in Nursing Programs", addresses several important aspects of nursing education that are largely overlooked by administrators and professionals in the field. These issues, as they relate to ethnic minority presence among nursing staff, are: increasing healthcare costs, tax revenue concerns, general shortage of nursing professionals, and an imbalance of ethnic nurses in comparison to ethnic patients (Amaro, Abriam-Yago & Yoder, 2006). These and other researchers feel that, in addition to the overall shortage of nursing staff of any demographic make-up, a worsening trend of loss of ethnic minorities among existing and future nursing staff is unsustainable in the mid to long-term."
