The Challenge of Enhancing Cultural Competence
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International

Title:Assistant Professor
Today there is an increased recognition that culturally and linguistically appropriate services need to be offered to eliminate disparities in health care and improve the health of populations (DHHS, 2000; McCullough-Zander, 2000; Purnell & Paulanka., 1998). Nursing faculty are challenged to broaden and deepen their own and their students’ cultural competence. Faculty teaching in a Health Systems Nurse Specialist master’s program to prepare nurse leaders in community health, nursing administration, and nursing informatics engaged in a process to 1) increase their personal cultural competence, 2) develop a consensus definition of cultural competence, and 3) more thoroughly integrate cultural competence into the curriculum. The process was crucial to achieving the desired outcome. Faculty reviewed literature to identify and analyze nursing and non-nursing models of cultural competence, compare models to personal values, and select key content, skills, and values to be addressed in the curriculum. The relationship between cultural competence and advanced nursing practice, and expectations of student achievement within the curriculum were explored and refined. This faculty learning process illustrated for us the value of practicing what we teach about learning organizations, and developing consensus while respecting individual beliefs and values. Graduates of the resulting curriculum will have greater cultural competence to foster development of health care systems and infrastructures that support delivery of culturally competent care.
