    The article refers to “a program pioneered by Kim to recruit and train minority bilingual nurses ….” I can understand why it might be important to recruit and train nurses who can speak a foreign language, but that can be done without insisting that the nurse belong to a particular racial or ethnic group. Lots of non-Latinos speak Spanish, for instance, and lots of Latinos don’t. And spare me the “cultural competence” nonsense: Having a particular skin color or national origin is no guarantee of that, either, and it can be taught to those of any racial or ethnic background. Would you hire only white nurses to work with white patients?
