Funny in my pre-nursing classes, the overwhelming majority of the students are minorities, mostly black females. I do believe this is a reprensestion of the area but not entirely. Here in westchester county NY the majority is white, but because it sits near to CT, NJ, Rockland county and NYC the classes are VERY diverse. I do notice that most nurses in my hospital are white and the techs are black or Spanish but this trend is going to change in the coming years, especially in nursing. There are many factors that play into this and I honestly dont want to debate the subject. Unless you are a minority, your on the outside looking in and there are some points that are lost in explanation.
