Help: Interview questions for minority RN nurses

  1. Hi everyone,
    I'm a newbie. I just started nursing school 2 weeks ago. I'm both excited and a little nervous. I hope everything will be fine. Anyway, one of the assignments that I have to do is to interview a minority RN nurse a few questions:
    1. In what way was your education more difficult or easier as a minority student?
    2. What do you see as the barriers for minority nurses in our profession?
    3. What do you see as the opportunity for minority nurses in our profession?
    4. What do you view as the value of increasing diversity in the nursing profession for health care?
    5. What do you think we can do as a profession and personally to increase diversity in nursing?

    Please help and answer the above questions if you can. I'd greatly appreciate.

    TT

    LOL, if I understand the OP correctly ... the request is for other minority RNs to answer the questions.

    Please help and answer the above questions if you can. I'd greatly appreciate. - TT

    if i understand this correctly, you are developing a list of questions that you would ask an rn from a racial/ethnic group that is not the majority of those in your hospital/school...right?
    i think you've got a pretty good start.
    how about:
    1. what lessons relating to your cultural background could you share to help others of different race/ethnicity better understand diversity?
    2. where do you think that folks from other races/ethnicities misunderstand you the most?
    good luck!!
