Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to determine whether a course in cultural competency would impact associate degree nursing students' perceptions of their abilities to provide care to culturally diverse clients. Ethnographic interviews with nursing faculty, graduates and students were utilized in course development. The cultural competency course was evaluated through the use of a pretest-posttest style survey. The interviews with faculty revealed themes that influenced the cultural competency course: critical reflection, communication, local cultural and ethnic groups, community resources, and mentoring. Most graduates and nursing students demonstrated a need for cultural competency, however those with the most cross-cultural experience provided the most culturally sensitive descriptions of their nursing experiences. The survey results confirmed findings from participant observation that the course positively impacted nursing students' comfort level, knowledge, and awareness of issues surrounding cultural competency. Based on the results of this study, recommendations have been made to continue cultural competency education in associate degree nursing and to add local cross-cultural experiences as a means of applying what is learned in the classroom.
