Abstract

Traditional approaches to cultural diversity and the development of a culturally aware workforce have consistently ignored the importance of gender role orientation and sexual orientation as sources of potential conflict in the work environment. To maintain its integrity as a caring profession, nursing must take steps to end personal and professional discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
