  • Willingness to Serve Underserved and Disenfranchised Populations: The Influence of Registered Nurses’ Demographic and Educational Characteristics, and Values. Nurses provide care to diverse patient populations and should be aware of their biases. The purposes of my research study were to specify the relative combined contributions of age, highest level of education, gender, and nursing certification on registered nurses’ values and willingness to serve underserved and disenfranchised populations. Development of nursing curricula to decrease prejudicial intolerance will help increase nurses’ willingness to provide culturally competent care.
