Although many nursing programs provide diversity training to enhance the understanding of cultural influences on health care, little is known about outcomes. This is due in part to a lack of consensus regarding definitions and measures. The purpose of this study was to examine a set of self-perceptions defined as personal growth, attributed by graduate nursing students (N = 41) to an eight-week diversity course. Participants reported modest levels of personal growth. Educators can adapt the instrument and method of this study to measure student attributions of growth to any aspect of nursing education...
