NURS 4500 - Nursing in a Global Community


2 cr. 2 hr. Offered in the Summer only. Also offered evenings.

Culturally competent health care is required for professional nursing practice. Culture extends beyond traditional boundaries of race and ethnicity to other marginalized populations including sub-cultures within society. This course will explore challenges to providing such competent care in professional nursing practice generated by language, race, ethnicity, health beliefs and practices, sexual orientation, and sub-culture affiliation. Additionally, specific barriers to culturally competent care including biases and stereotypes will be challenged in this course.
