Violence emerged as an expression of care from this author's
dissertation research, "An ethnonursing culture care study of the
meanings, expressions and lifeway experiences of selected urban African
American adolescent gang members. The purpose of this subsequent
qualitative study was to systematically analyze further the universal
meanings of violence within the urban African American adolescent gang
subculture. Leininger's Culture Care Diversity and Universality theory of
nursing along with the ethnonursing methodology was used to further
conceptualize the domain of violence in order to discover additional
meanings, expressions, beliefs and lifeway experiences related to violence
in the subculture of urban African American gang members. 13 key
participants along with 28 general participants participated in
ethnographic interviews over a ten-month period. The Ethnograph was the
qualitative software used to analyze the raw data. Universal themes
emerging from data about youth violence and gang members included:
protection through violence was necessary in order to provide a safety,
health and well-being within the urban environment, respect for others and
from others is necessary in order to promote safety and well-being among
family, friends and self and is achieved through violent acts, violence is
a means of relieving the social pain associated with living in an urban
environment, violence is a means of building self-worth through
competition, and violence results from anger associated with the
oppressive urban environment. Nurses play a crucial role in promoting
healthy lifeways for people living in an urban environment. While nurses
should understand role of violence from an adolescent gang member
perspective, they need to be actively engaged in helping adolescents to
find healthier lifeways to build self worth, gain respect from others,
protect family, friends and self and to live safely and healthfully in
their urban environment, thereby promoting well-being and health.
