This project aims to describe and report the experiences of nine non-ethic Danes in their meeting with the Danish health education system.

The informants say that they have to rely on their own resources in order to establish contact to patients in general, and in particular to patients of another ethnicity than Danish.

Language difficulties play a dominant role. The informants struggle to gain acceptance of their intellectual resources. They are often met with prejudice. They all regard nursing as an important profession and look forward to becoming integrated into the Danish labour market. We recommend a mentor solution to bridge the gap between non-ethic Danes and ethnic Danes in the education system.
