In reporting the findings of a major two year research project, funded by the English National Board of Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visiting, the authors offer a wide-ranging overview of the current variability in the adequacy of the preparation of members of the nursing professions to work appropriately with minority ethnic clients. This account is complemented by a detailed analysis of professional education in three specific educational institutions. In combination these analyses reveal much about the institutional, professional and pedagogic agendas which interact in shaping the adequacy of professional training. By placing this data within a clearly developed review of ethnicity and nursing care the authors offer valuable insight and guidance which will enable educators and individual practitioners to address the health care needs of minority ethnic clients and communities.
