Abstract:
Differences and Similarities Between Yup'ik Generic Care and Professional Nursing Care: Implications for Nursing Education
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2004
Conference Date:July 22-24, 2004
Author:Schulling, Sharon, PhD, FNP-C
P.I. Institution Name:Peace Corps-Moldova
Title:Medical Officer-Peace Corps Moldova
Objectives: Compare Yup’ik Eskimo generic care and Western professional nursing care. Identify factors most effective in recruiting and retaining Yup’ik nursing students. Design: An exploratory, descriptive design using Leininger’s ethnonursing research model. Population, Sample, Setting, Years: Twenty-three Yup’ik health care providers interviewed in various Alaska communities between July and October 2002. Concepts Studied: Yup’ik worldview and its influence on health care compared with current nursing care concepts. Key factors for success of Yup’ik students in nursing programs. Methods: Thirty-seven, one hour, taped interviews over a four-month period. Interviews coded, grouped into related themes, and analyzed utilizing the Ethnograph v5.0 from Sage Publications, Inc. Use of Leininger’s Acculturation Enabler Guide to quantitatively determine level of acculturation of an individual with respect to his/her culture. Findings: Five themes: Awareness of balance in nature. Showing respect in all things. Importance of family. Importance of language. Conflict between tradition and science. Conclusions: Health aides, on average, were younger and more traditional than the nurses. Much theory currently taught in colleges of nursing is in direct conflict with the traditional beliefs of the Yup’ik health care providers. Yup’ik nurses prefer a proactive support system early and throughout their college careers. Implications: Nursing theory should be presented in a holistic manner. Nursing care must be a respectful, participatory process rather than regimented compliance. Nuclear and extended family members should be included in all stages of health care. Understanding the Yup’ik language as well as body language is key to care giving. Awareness of traditional Yup’ik practices is required for culturally sensitive nursing care. Factors which increase recruitment and retention of Yup’ik students in nursing: Awareness of health professions as vocational opportunities. A clearly defined role within the community. Demonstrated community, family, and college support. Academic and social preparation of village students for college life.
