As the nursing workforce increasingly reflects the changing U.S. population, nurses have many opportunities to collaborate and interact with other nurses from around the world. These experiences afford all nurses a chance to gain cultural knowledge and understanding that will ultimately enhance the delivery of culturally competent patient care. While white nurses continue to represent the majority of registered nurses, approximately 26% of the RN population is represented by nurses from culturally diverse racial and ethnic minority groups. Working cross-culturally requires nurses to appreciate the impact cultural differences have on interpersonal communication. Transcultural nurses are sensitive to these differences and strive to determine the most appropriate and effective ways to interact with diverse colleagues. When nurses communicate and collaborate productively with one another, they are much more likely to deliver culturally relevant care to their patients and improve the overall patient experience.
The purpose of this course is to present strategies for practicing cultural etiquette to facilitate positive communication and interactions between culturally diverse members of the healthcare team. It is applicable to nurses in all settings.
