Behind the Scrubs: A Nursing Magazine’s Representation of Race and Gender


Abstract



The nursing profession today continues to be dominated by one race and one gender. Because of the changing demographics of the United States, the healthcare industry consciously tries to attract “minority nurses” into the field. Advertisement is one such way to promote the profession. In this study, one particular magazine, Minority Nurse, which brands itself as a “minority magazine” for nurses is analyzed to assess how nurses from minority and dominant groups are represented.
