Bias Discussion

  • Complete the General Awareness and Attitudes Scale download
    • The General Awareness and Attitudes Scale is adapted from the Cultural Awareness Scale by Catterson, Cookston, Martinez, & Rew (1998). Answer the question as honestly as possible. There are no right or wrong answers.
  • Once you complete and score the General Awareness and Attitudes Scale, answer the following questions:
  • What does the scale say about you?
  • How strong are your biases?
  • NOTE: Do NOT post your individual scores. This discussion is not about how you score, but about personal discovery. In other words, the focus of this discussion is about what you learn about yourself. You also do NOT need to share your score with your academic coach.
  • How can you address these personal biases in your professional nursing practice?
