Internationalizing teaching and learning in a graduate doctor of nursing program curriculum

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The population of the United States (U.S.) was estimated at 318,892,103 in 2014 (Central Intelligence Agency, 2014). U.S. Census data in 2012 revealed there were 40 different languages spoken in U.S. homes and 79 ethnicities were reported. For the first time, in 2010, individuals were also allowed to list more than one race when completing census information. This demonstrates an increasingly diverse society in the U.S. and mandates the need to better educate students regarding the richness and potential that multiculturalism brings to today’s world. Census data also showed a shift in age demographics toward older age groups with the largest populations reported in young adult and middle age groups rather than in pediatric age groups.
