Lockhart, Joan Such PhD, RN, CORLN; Resick, Lenore K. MSN, RN, CS, CRNP


Nurse educators are responsible for developing graduates who are culturally competent care givers and marketable as culturally sensitive coworkers. An undergraduate course in transcultural nursing is described that relies heavily on experiential learning activities and local community resources. Student evaluations reveal both immediate and long-term effects of this course on graduates' clinical practice.
