Summary

It has been suggested that underrepresentation of blacks in professional nursing results from insufficient black-nurse role models. This study of 331 black and white freshman nursing students in three, two year, associate degree programs argues that blacks are not professional nurses for reasons other than a lack of role models. The results show that the black and white students differ little in regard to values and orientation toward nursing. The socio-economic variation between the black and white students appears to account for the small variation observed. Discrimination by schools of nursing is suggested as the major barrier to blacks becoming registered nurses. (Author)
