Abstract

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.
