This course examines cultural aspects of health care. Transcultural issues include (but are not limited to) culture, religion, socioeconomic status, gender and sexual orientation. Examination of cultures includes the understanding that each encounter includes at least 3 cultures: that of nursing, the institution, and the client. An emphasis is placed on recognizing contemporary challenges and developing skills needed for the practice of professional nursing. Students develop the knowledge needed to provide culturally appropriate care. (only required for some RN to BS completion students)
