21st INRC [Research Presentation] Purpose: The purposes of this study were to determine the levels of and the difference in acculturation of FSU nurses in Israel and Filipino RNs in the US. Methods: Acculturation was assessed using A Short Acculturation Scale for Filipino Americans (ASASFA) and t-test was conducted to determine the difference in acculturation between these two groups of immigrant nurses. Results: Results revealed that Filipino RNs have an acculturation level that leaned toward their host culture while FSU nurses have an acculturation level that was closer to their original culture than the Israeli culture and that there was a significant difference in acculturation between these two groups of immigrant nurses. Conclusion: Differences in acculturation between two predominant groups of immigrant nurses in Israel and the US exist. Understanding the differences and the factors that affect their integration into their host cultures could be used to retain them in the workplace thereby alleviating the current nursing shortage and could be used to assist them achieve positive personal and work-related outcomes.
