NURS 3533 - Transcultural Concepts Seminar


In this seminar students discuss transcultural nursing concepts and their application to nursing care across the lifespan. Students examine topics of cultural and gender bias, ethnocentrism, cultural blindness, cultural imposition, and legal trends, as well as select ethical and moral issues and dilemmas encountered when caring for culturally diverse patients and families. An exploration of the health beliefs and practices of several cultural groups and sub-groups in the United States is conducted. Current nursing research is used to inform the study of transcultural nursing and cultural competence.
