Abstract:
Session presented on: Friday, April 4, 2014: Purpose and Theoretical Rationale: The purpose of this triangulated comparative design of cohorts of pre-licensure nursing students is to describe trends over time in self-efficacy strength as measured with the Transcultural Self-Efficacy Tool (TSET) and to interpret reflective narratives of students engaged in learning through cultural immersion during a medical mission.� Reflective narratives provide in-depth understanding of perceptions about the social context of diverse populations and develop critical thinking skills.� Jeffreys (2010) Cultural Competence and Confidence Model (CCC) guides this research to examine changes in self-efficacy perceptions in the cognitive, practical, and affective domains of learning about care for diverse client populations.� Assessment of curricular programs is needed to evaluate cultural competence and cultural safety perceptions of students to provide diagnostic-prescriptive data.� Cultural safety may best be assessed with written narratives that reflect student perceptions of how a client describes cultural care, taking into account the providers� awareness of their own attitudes about health-care interactions and the environment of care. Subjects' Pre-and-post TSETs were completed by students in traditional face to face transcultural nursing courses or cultural immersion mission trips.� Students in cultural immersion wrote reflective narratives about their experiences.���Method:�All participants completed the 83-item TSET that has supported reliability, stability, and construct validity in three subscales evaluating transcultural self-efficacy strength and changes over time.� The subscales provide a measure of the cognitive, practical, and affective learning domains.� TSET scores will be analyzed for differences between and within groups.� Reflective narratives will be examined and interpreted to gain in-depth understanding of the lived experience of students engaged in cultural immersion using the CCC Model as a guiding theory about self-efficacy beliefs, cultural confidence, and cultural safety. Discussion:�Preliminary results of TSET scores and interpretation of the reflective narratives will be discussed.� Data analysis is in process at this time.
