Kingston’s story “A Song for a Barbarian Reed Pipe” employs numerous fantasy elements in depicting her separation from the restrictiveness of China and further, her discovery of harmony between her ancient family’s culture and her new American one.

Kingston’s rhetoric conveys her struggle with the complexities of her Chinese culture and her inability to come to a core truth. Furthermore, she gravitates toward American culture for its simplicity. Kingston is having difficulties sorting fact from fiction in her mother’s story about Moon Orchid’s encounter with her husband.

Understanding of cultural diversity is crucial for nursing to offer suitable care to individuals, families, and communities. The theory's goal is to recognize ways to deliver culturally nursing care to patients of varied cultures (Leininger, 1997). An organizational barrier to this would be the misconception of what hospice really does.
Prepare learners for assessment by inviting them to discuss their own experiences of health and social care services, and those of their family, with regard to rights and equal treatment. Learners who are undertaking Unit 5 Vocational Experience in a Health or Social Care Setting should be encouraged to reflect upon their experiences and observations.

Traditionally, the Chinese practice “filial piety,” the respect and honor for parents and older adults (Chan & KayserJones 2005). Often elderly Chinese will live with their children whenever unable to fully care for themselves. This is an act of respect and dignity. With economic unpredictability, many ChineseAmerican’s have full time jobs and have to consider nursing home care for their loved ones instead of having the option of living at home with them.
