Abstract: Drawing on a feminist praxis study in which nurses were asked to explore their experiences in caring for people of culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, cultural frameworks bounded by interconnected markers of race, ethnicity and gender were constructed to analyse the nurses' narrative accounts. The aims of this paper are to discuss the analytical framework that draws on black feminist and postcolonial writers used to examine the cultural constructions of nursing practice. It will also draw attention to one of the major findings of the study in which, through this analytical process, broader connections between health and multicultural government policies, institutional structures and the microcosm of nursing practice were exposed. Through this analysis, an exclusionary whitecentric healthcare culture was exposed, which rendered people of non-English speaking background invisible.
