- “I probably spent more time reading than I should have because I found the information to be so interesting. I absolutely enjoyed this course. I have previously learned some information about providing transcultural care, but this course taught me so much about the cultures of patients I have been providing nursing care, that I truly did not know. I feel that I have increased my understanding of the cultures of my patients and also my colleagues. I believe having this knowledge and the book to use as a resource will improve the care I am providing and help me to be more understanding and less critical of behaviors I observe.”

-“Very interesting subject. Very timely with all the different cultures currently in the US. I think knowledge of the numerous cultures is very important in caring for patients – the text was easy to understand and provided information that was new to me.” 

CCRNs: This course is eligible for new synergy model Category B.

Transcultural Nursing: Assessment and Intervention is more important now than ever. Because minorities tend to receive a lower quality of health care even when their access to services is similar to that of nonminorities and because the diversity, ethnic, racial, age, lifestyle, economic, sexual preferences, immigration status of the U.S. population is growing, cross-cultural education in the health professions is seen as a key strategy in ending such disparities.

The text presents the six cultural phenomena believed to shape care—communication, space, social organization, time, environmental control, and biological variations. Many chapters specify how a particulr racial/ethnic group (e.g., African Americans or Appalachians) may vary in these areas and how these variations must be taken into account in planning care.

Read about these Cultural Groups: • African Americans • Mexican Americans • Navajos (Diné) • Appalachians • American Eskimos • Japanese Americans • Afghans and Afghan Americans • Russian Americans • Chinese Americans • Filipino Americans • Vietnamese Americans • East Indian Hindu Americans • Haitian Americans • Jewish Americans • Korean Americans • French Canadians of Québec Origin • Puerto Ricans • Nigerian Americans • Ugandan Americans • Jordanian Americans • Cuban Americans • Amish Americans • Irish Americans.
