Nurses in every clinical arena have encountered a wide variety of patient and family cultural beliefs and practices related to health and illness. In the best of circumstances, nurses recognize cultural aspects of their own and their patients' experience and are equipped with the rich educational resources and professional expertise to render humane and safe nursing care. The challenge for nurse educators is how to scaffold student learning to attain cultural competencies in a rigorous, reliable manner responsive to the cultural diversity that characterizes a global society. This symposium explores the spectrum of cultural competence in baccalaureate nursing education. The first presentation begins with the need for new competencies to guide educators preparing baccalaureate nurses and discusses the recent cultural competencies crafted by nursing experts and published by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). Next, three different universities in the western United States tell their own stories of how their faculty developed, implemented, and continued to evaluate their cultural competence educational models in baccalaureate nursing programs. Contrasting these exemplar programs in cultural competence highlights the creativity of faculty in developing meaningful cultural competence experiences for students. Each university openly grapples with the need for faculty to review their existing didactic and clinical learning activities and assess the fit of current cultural competence education with the newly established AACN cultural competencies. Each university case presentation concludes with a discussion of future directions in their own baccalaureate nursing program related to cultural competency education. Finally, resources available to all faculty through the AACN website and toolkit are reviewed. Some nursing programs may already be using case studies, simulations, self-reflection activities, and clinical encounters with culturally diverse patient populations to prepare nurses of the future. Other nursing programs may benefit from reviewing the range of educational experiences and resources assembled in the toolkit. Overall, the process of preparing professional nurses to enter the workforce with identified cultural competencies is underway. Recent nationally-disseminated competencies and a toolkit of resources can be used in educational programs that have already adopted a cultural competence curricular thread. Programs seeking direction as they establish cultural competence in educational programs will also benefit from a review of resources and exemplars.
