This study puts more focus on the role of educators in addressing diversity in classrooms to ensure that all students are able to understand and gain knowledge during the learning process (Mahlo, 2017). This is an important aspect in achieving inclusive education, which is aimed at addressing the diverse needs of all learners, which has been indicated to positively contribute to education success (Mahlo, 2017). Educators play an important role in helping nurse students in gaining critical knowledge and important skills, which are important in enabling nurses to perform their roles effectively (Billings & Halstead, 2016). This study was conducted on ten teachers who were working in the Foundation Phase to provide information on some of the challenges encountered in addressing the diverse needs of the students (Mahlo, 2017). Some of the indicated reasons include the social problems of the learners and the lack of adequate training for the teachers. If these issues are effectively addressed, the teachers are able to cater for the diverse needs of the learners (Mahlo, 2017). This is because they will be able to apply effective learning strategies as well as support the learners in different aspects to ensure that they are able to successfully complete their education process (Mahlo, 2017). This study is beneficial in patient education as it can help nurses in addressing some of the challenges, which may be present preventing an effective education process (Billings & Halstead, 2016). Patient education plays an important role in achieving healthcare goals, which include health promotion (Billings & Halstead, 2016). This study has also provided the different roles of educators in creating an inclusive classroom, which is beneficial to all teachers in addressing some of the diversity issues, which may negatively affect the learning process of students as well as patients (Mahlo, 2017).
