The purpose of this study was to discover, describe, and systematically analyze universal and diverse care meanings and expressions of the urban African American adolescent gang culture within a qualitative paradigm. The goal was to use epistemic and ontologic nursing knowledge discovered to meet well being and health needs of urban African American adolescent gang members through the provision of culturally congruent and meaningful care. Leininger's Culture Care Diversity and Universality theory of nursing was used to conceptualize the domain in order to discover care expressions, values, beliefs, meanings, and practices of African American adolescent gang members. Discoveries of unknown epistemic and ontologic nursing phenomena were explicated using the culture care paradigm and the ethnonursing research method. Data collection took place over a ten-month period with 13 key and 26 general informants. Evaluation criteria for qualitative research, specifically, credibility, recurrent patterning, meaning-in-context, redundancy, and saturation were met. Observation, participation and ethnographic interviews were used to collect data in the research context of the informants. A systematic, rigorous, and in-depth data analysis was done using Leininger's four phases of Data Analysis Guide enabler designed for ethnonursing qualitative research data and the Ethnograph qualitative software program. Four universal themes, one diverse theme, and one additional finding emerged from the data. These findings along with Leininger's modes of nursing actions suggest ways of providing culturally congruent nursing care for African American adolescent gang members in an urban context. Broad nursing implications for this study include: maintaining respect for privacy and confidentiality, non-judgmental listening, accommodating physical and emotional support, providing guidance and direction, and restructuring destructive lifeways including health risk behaviors and violence. These actions will facilitate their willingness to seek health care, thereby promoting health and well being in this group.
