Abstract

Baccalaureate degree seeking nursing students have varied experiences while in the nursing programs. These experiences can be viewed as factors and forces (both negative and positive) that promote or hinder their success in nursing school. Some of these forces and factors have a greater impact, and others have a smaller impact on the students’ experiences and ultimately, their outcomes. This paper examines the influence of positive and negative factors and forces affecting multicultural and multilingual baccalaureate nursing students. Positive experiences explored in this paper include; multicultural nursing student associations, self-motivation, and resilience, and student colleague support. Negative experiences explored in this paper include; academic navigation, personal constraints, and language difference.
