Recent census data highlight the ongoing shift toward greater levels of racial and ethnic diversity in the US population. In 2000, non-Hispanic whites accounted for 69% of the population. By 2010, this decreased to 64%. The Census Bureau predicts that minorities will become the majority over the upcoming decades. In nursing and other healthcare professions, however, a different picture emerges, with minorities consistently underrepresented. The authors describe the development, outcomes, and benefits of the clinical leadership collaborative for diversity in nursing. Strategies for overcoming barriers to increasing diversity in the nursing profession are addressed.
