Teaching Nursing in a Developing Country

Conrad, Nancy L. MSN, RN

International Perspectives

Cultural competence is expected of nurses and educators in transcultural relationships. The author describes the Ugandan setting, where she taught registered nurse students for 9 months, and her process of assimilation leading to cultural competence. Concepts and issues pertinent to the acculturation of a nurse educator into international nursing in a developing country are discussed.
