Abstract

AIM: The aim of this research was to analyze the challenges of nurse faculty when teaching culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) students.

 

BACKGROUND: CLD students struggle academically and may need accommodations to be successful. There is a lack of research on challenges faced by faculty when teaching CLD students and faculty perceptions of those challenges.

 

METHOD: Data were collected via an online survey and in-person interviews.

 

RESULTS: Several challenges were uncovered. The most common challenges were related to language barriers and lack of support in teaching CLD students.

 

CONCLUSION: Nursing faculty members have several challenges in teaching CLD nursing students and should receive training to better understand, assess, and instruct their students.
