Abstract

Racism in nursing can be positioned through institutional forms of gendered, racialized, and religious structures. Muslim nurses who choose to honor the Islamic practice of donning hijab may be at risk of experiencing racism in contexts of post-September 11 era and the war on terror. Critical race feminism and intersectionality are theoretical frameworks that when applied to narrative inquiry can illuminate the standpoint of Muslim nurses donning hijab by providing a counternarrative as a point of resistant to racism in nursing.
