Abstract:

Session presented on: Friday, April 4, 2014

Some people entering a cross-cultural environment, experience a sense of disorientation; they find it difficult to understand the common behavior in a culture other than their own. Furthermore, they do not know how to behave in that environment.  The situation places them at risk for stress, depression, and anxiety.  The results of the present study will help higher education and healthcare leaders to understand the problem.  The purpose of this investigation was to describe 2011 and 2012 (novice) nursing graduates’ level of global interdependence identity, as manifested in their level of worldminded attitude.  In addition, the study investigated the strongest predictors of worldmindedness.  The method was quantitative and the design was descriptive with multiple regression.  The results suggested that nurses graduated in 2011 or 2012 from a variety of nursing schools in Ohio, who work for a large hospital in the Cleveland (Ohio) area, have slightly above neutral development level of global interdependence identity.  The regression revealed the immigration dimension as the main determinant on the development of global interdependence identity but the best model comprehends immigration, patriotism, and war dimensions.  The results of this investigation provided information that educators need to promote the students’ personal development of global interdependence identity and opened a channel for meeting the needs of the global healthcare market through the improvement of institutions of higher education and for promoting the effectiveness of healthcare organizations.
