AbstractThis study was a secondary analysis of data originally collected by the Comprehensive Multi-level Nursing Practice Model for Rural Hispanics (Ferketich, Philips, & Verran, 1990). The purpose of this study was to determine if those Mexican Americans who accessed the services perceived differently satisfaction and utilization of the services provided by the intervention. Overall evaluation of services by those who utilized them was also studied. Specific to the research questions was the impact that the culturally sensitive nature of this intervention had on use and satisfaction by the Mexican Americans in these communities. General evaluation of the services found many were satisfied. Data revealed that those in poorer perceived general health had greater use of services. No significant differences in satisfaction or utilization were found between those using services and those not visiting clinics. These findings are important for the nursing community for developing projects and providing interventions to minority communities.
