abstract

  • Many health-care organizations and associations recommend that registered nurses be culturally competent and technologically savvy to compete in today's global society. This article reports both traditional and innovative technology-based teaching strategies that increased cultural competencies in nursing students in a BSNIMSN program for foreign-educated physicians. The Inventory for Assessing the Process of/Cultural Competency among Healthcare Professionals-Revised, was used at the beginning and at the end of the program. Cultural simulation scenarios and critical-reflection essay were some of the strategies used. The program prepared culturally competent advanced practice nurses while creating a smooth transition for the students to adapt to and acculturate into the cultures of the United States and nursing.
