Educational Evaluation of the Process of Cultural Competence in a Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing Graduate Program

Background: The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations (JCAHO) and Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) health care standards for cultural competence mandate that patients have access to care in their own language and recommend that health care providers provide culturally competent care. Psych-mental health care, in particular, requires a well-integrated understanding of cultural considerations for accurate assessment, treatment and rehabilitation. It is imperative that students in an advanced practice psych-mental health nursing education program receive a culturally competent based educational program. Purpose: This presentation will describe the development and delivery of a graduate Psych-mental health nursing program in which concepts of cultural care are grounded in the educational program, including course content, clinical experiences, and teaching-learning strategies. It is expected that grounding advanced practice psych-mental health concepts in the context of culture will and can promote culturally competent care for individuals, families and communities. Evaluation: Campinha-Bacote's cultural competence tool was used to measure the students' cultural competence before, during, and after the psych-mental health nursing course work. Data was collected from three student cohorts consisting of 13 students (100% participation). The preliminary analysis suggests that cultural competence ratings have increased after both didactic and clinical teaching. Informal descriptive evaluative comments on cultural competence, from both professors and students, will be shared. Implications: Integrating concepts of cultural care in the context of advanced practice psychiatric nursing care increases the self reported perceptions of cultural competence in graduate students in nursing. Recommendations will be made for further evaluation to improve program implementation of cultural awareness and knowledge. In addition, further research focusing on describing culturally competent care from the client perspective is indicated.
