Cross Cultural Nursing is an elective course that introduces the student to concepts of transcultural nursing. The foundation of this course is based on the ANA theme of “providing age-appropriate and culturally and ethnically sensitive care” (ANA Scope and Standards of Practice, 2004, p. 4) as well as the ANA Code of Ethics for Nurses. Students are introduced to fundamental concepts by providing information regarding specific cultures as a beginning point in developing cultural awareness and sensitivity. Linkage between health disparity and culturally competent care will be explored; the laws and policies that oversee culturally competent practice and the standards and guidelines of accreditation will be investigated. Prerequisite: NURS 3352, 3362, 3372.
