Class Program
Credits 3
Special Attributes

Students are introduced to theoretical concepts regarding culture and strategies for providing culturally competent nursing care in a multi-cultural society.  The student will develop awareness of cultural and spiritual beliefs as they impact behavior and life choices of individuals seeking healthcare. Cultural concepts and principles are discussed as related to provision of holistic nursing care for vulnerable individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations in a variety of inpatient, outpatient, and public health settings. This course provides a balance between acquiring some background knowledge of select cultural groups encountered in clinical practice, and developing attitudes and skills that are not specific to any particular culture but are universally relevant.
