Purpose: The toolkit for cultural competent education for baccalaureate nurses identifies significant content, teaching-learning activities, and resources to integrate cultural competency in nursing education. Background: The five competences identified by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) as essential to cultural competence in nursing education can be enacted in didactic and clinical teaching-learning situations. The toolkit offers faculty direction about the concepts to be taught, resources available to assist students to master these competencies, and practice and research applications of the competencies. Approach: The toolkit itself can be downloaded from the AACN website at http://www.aacn.nche.edu/Education/pdf/toolkit.pdf. The toolkit is organized in three main parts. The first part is an overview of educational components, beginning with key concepts in the field of cultural competence. Culture, cultural awareness, cultural imposition, and cultural competence are reviewed and referenced in professional literature, along with other pertinent concepts. Next follows an overview of nursing models for culturally competent care and the components of each model. Highlighted models include Campinha-Bacote's Model of Cultural Competence, Leininger's Cultural Care Diversity and Universality Theory/Model, Purnell's Model of Transcultural Health Care, and Spector's Health Traditions Model. Learning strategies to foster cultural competence and curricular resources complete the first part of the toolkit. The second part of the toolkit is a collection of practice-relevant resources for students to consider in their provision of nursing care. The agencies, publications, and web-based resources encourage students to think about their own culture, learn about other cultures, and gain skills in working with people who have particular health or illness needs. The third part of the toolkit addresses the need for research in the provision of health care and cultural competence. Consideration of the concepts and measures of inequities, disparities, and culturally competent health care systems are featured. Outcomes Achieved: The toolkit is a compendium of current and classic resources in the field of cultural competence. The online nature of the toolkit makes it cost-effective and easy to update. Conclusions: Faculty may use the toolkit to prepare lectures, simulation scenarios, clinical pre- or post-conferences, structure clinical experiences, and dialogue with students about clinical care experiences. Students, too, may find the content useful during their formal education as a supplement to didactic or clinical content in the area of cultural competence, as well as a helpful resource for additional information and resources after their formal education is concluded.
