In this module, we looked at the evolution of the nursing profession and how it relates to the continued issue of achieving a culturally diverse workforce. Despite our progress in moving toward a culturally diverse nursing workforce, efforts are needed to achieve nursing workforce diversity to meet patient care needs. The report produced by the Sullivan Commission on Diversity in the Healthcare Workforce (2004) provided a framework from which one can understand nursing workforce diversity issues. In particular, it provided a way to systematically review issues surrounding the historical context of nursing workforce diversity, why increasing workforce diversity is important, how we might achieve a more diverse workforce and how it may be paid for, and who is accountable for achieving the diversity goal.


  • Use the derived Sullivan Commission Report framework to describe and analyze nursing workforce diversity at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta GA. The framework is given in the bulleted list below.
  • Support your analysis with references. You must reference at least three nursing journal articles that are not from your reading assignment. Additionally, you may cite documents from the Module 1 reading assignments.
  • Protect workplace and personal identifiers in the completion of your assignment.
  • In a minimum of 4–6 double-spaced pages, write your workplace analysis in a Microsoft Word document. Describe nursing workforce diversity as it exists in Grady Memorial Hospital, Atlanta GA. Include in your description two historical roots that you believe contributed to the representation of nurse minorities at Grady. Below is the derived Sullivan Commission Framework for you to use to complete the assignment:
    • Analyze the workplace you have described by addressing the following:
      • Why is it important to continue to grow workforce diversity in Grady?
      • What workplace strategies are in place, and what additional strategies may be added to continue to move toward a more diverse nursing workforce?
      • What are at least two expenses that might be incurred to grow workforce diversity?
      • Who has been and should be accountable for achieving the workforce diversity goal?
