Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the level of cultural sensitivity among nurse anesthesia program directors. Culturally competent health care has become a goal of numerous educational, professional, and health service organizations. As the primary role model for students, it is vital that nurse anesthesia program administrators be culturally sensitive to an increasingly diverse student population, because until recently, nurse anesthesia programs historically admit few ethnic minorities. Theoretical/Conceptual Framework: The conceptual framework that was adapted for this study was influenced by Campinha-Bacote's Model of Cultural Competence. The framework is intended to assess five subscales representing the components of cultural competence. Subjects: The sample included 54 Nurse Anesthesia Program Directors or Acting Directors METHOD: This study will use a descriptive correlational design to address the research question in a nonrandomized convenience sample of nurse anesthesia program directors and acting directors to describe the overall cultural sensitivity index of nurse anesthesia administrators, five culturally sensitive subscales, and cultural teaching behaviors of directors in nurse anesthesia programs. Descriptive data analysis (means, standard deviations, percents, frequencies, and ranges as appropriate) will be conducted to characterize the sample and examine scores on the five subscales. The research question will provide direction for analysis of the study data. Multiple regression analysis will be used to explore the contribution of each question to the subscale index and the overall sensitivity index. Results: The results will be used to decide if faculty development programs on cultural sensitivity are warranted and if opportunities for cross cultural interactions might improve program director's understanding of their multicultural student body. Conclusion: Directors of nurse anesthesia programs must be cognizant that effective communication, empathy and compassion are vital elements that program administrators must possess to facilitate the learning process.
