Junior year students (=276) at a culturally diverse, urban high school were surveyed to examine how their perceptions of nursing compared with their perceptions of an ideal career. Findings indicate that significant differences exist among cultural and racial groups and between genders. Recommendations are made to increase recruitment of multicultural students into nursing.
