The awareness of explicit and implicit bias within the United Kingdom's higher education (HE) system is growing. Biases can influence HE structure, policies, procedures, resources, curriculum content, and student access. This can infiltrate teacher implicit bias, affecting curriculum delivery, learning outcomes, and assessment practices. Biases continue to disproportionately impact HE minority groups, who often experience stereotyping, stigma, discrimination, and disparities in service provision. This poses significant challenges to fostering a diverse Mental Health Nursing (MHN) workforce, which is crucial for culturally competent care and reducing healthcare disparities.
