[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Evidence-based Practice Presentation] This presentation will examine the use of film in teaching concepts of multiculturalism to future nurse educators.  Changing demographics of nursing students dictates that nursing faculty must be competent in the concepts of multicultural education and cultural competence.  Nursing faculty must be adept at providing an inclusive classroom for all students regardless of cultural and ethnic backgrounds.  In teaching future nurse educators, concepts of cultural awareness, knowledge, skills, and attitudes must be incorporated into the curriculum.  Adult learners thrive on real-life examples and engaged, active learning opportunities.  Graduate students majoring in Nursing Education watched the film "Freedom Writers", a realistic account of a High School English teacher in Long Beach, California.  The film illustrates important key concepts of cultural competence and successful strategies for teaching students of varied cultural backgrounds.  After watching the film in class, nurse educator students discussed prompts posed by the nursing professor to stimulate further dialogue amongst peers. Discuss the components of cultural competence as described by Dr. Campinha-Bacote.  Discuss the following statements by Campinha-Bacote and how were these expressed in the film?  Expected outcomes of this teaching strategy were that the learners would be able to verbalize concepts of multicultural education and cultural competence upon completion of the film. Students responded that it addressed a multitude of learning styles represented in the class and provided a way for them to internalize the material more deeply than if it were offered as a traditional lecture.  Recommendations are to continue the use of this teaching strategy for future offerings of this course and to explore additional ways that film can be utilized as an active teaching strategy for a variety of topics in nursing.
