Nurse educators are faced with the challenge of implementing educational programs that value the diversity of students and that positively portray this diversity at the same time meeting the overall goals of the institutions. The literature has shown that with the implementation of this concept, the curriculum and instruction will be changed to produce an awareness, acceptance, and affirmation of cultural diversity. This article was written to provide nurse educators with strategies for implementing the multicultural concept into their nursing programs. An outline of essential knowledge, a guideline for critiquing a nursing education program, theory, justification for the approach will be presented.
