As the world evolves, so has the nursing community. It is exciting to interview new nurses and realize the diversity of this population. Some of these new nurses are just beginning life as an adult. Others are grandparents who were inspired by their child that is already a nurse. Many men are pursuing nursing as a profession, adding gender differences in the care of the patients. Varied cultural backgrounds and bilingual nurses increase our ability to relate to the diverse population that we serve. No longer do we have the "cookie cutter" nurses that were 100 percent female wearing starch white uniforms and hats. Individuality shines. Recognizing, fostering, appreciating and utilizing these differences for optimal safe, personalized patient care will lead to the strong team each unit and hospital desires.
