Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Issues of providing culturally congruent care have become more important in the practice setting, creating interest in the development of cost-effective, efficient and innovative programs to provide transcultural learning experiences. Comprehensive cultural competency models conceptualize advancement from cultural awareness to cultural competency as a process, not simply an event. Our hospital has developed an innovative, holistic transcultural nursing program using the foundational model of Leininger's Culture Care Theory. We conceptualize the journey toward cultural competency along Benner's theoretical framework. Patricia Benner (1983, 2001) applied the Dreyfus Model of Skill Acquisition to nursing. This model identifies five levels of proficiency in skill acquisition and development: novice, advanced beginner, competent, proficient, and expert. A variety of offerings provide all professional nurses, from novice to expert, an opportunity to acquire the knowledge necessary to provide culturally congruent care at the bedside. Our Transcultural Nursing Program addresses several Forces of Magnetism, including Force IV: Personnel Policies and Programs, Force V: Professional Models of Care, and Force VI: Quality of Care. This poster reviews our Transcultural Nursing Program, including: The Cultural Diversity Class; The New Graduate Residency Series; Culturally Sensitive Care; Building Cultural Competency at the Bedside: An Introduction to Transcultural Nursing; The Transcultural Nursing Journal Club; and Individual mentoring by transcultural nursing experts.
