Objectives: Today we live in a multicultural world. Culturally competent care is central to nursing practice and to providing care that is ethically based. This project included three objectives (1) emphasize the ethical principles of beneficence, nonmaleficence, and justice in relation to cultural comptence and its importance to evidenced based practice and education of graduate nurses (2) assess the strength of our academic program (3) ensure that our graduate provide care while taking into account cultural and personal values and preferences. Design: Students in a graduate course on Health Promotion and Disease Prevention were divided into 8 groups of 5 students each. They were to select a multicultural population, search the literature for information about the group, and conduct field observation and interviews to validate their information and to get first-hand understanding about the cultural values and preferences of the group. Additionally, students were responsible for developing an educational program, apply for continuing education credit, market the program to health care professional, and culminate with the presentation of a multicultural educational program where they were the presenters. Method: The program included podium and poster presentation on 8 different cultures by each group. Campinha-Bacote’s Inventory for Assessing the Process of Cultural Competence –Revised was used as pre and post program evaluation measures. Implications: Culturally competent care is central to nursing practice and to providing care that is ethically based. Involving the students and trusting them with the development of the program, provided them with an invaluable learning opportunity. They became more aware of how their own culture affects the nursing care they give. This strategy was valuable for assessing our academic strength in this area and provided valuable feedback for our program.
