In a medical-surgical course, we created a scenario-recorded activity to provide an innovative way for students to develop their cultural competence. The assignment objectives are aligned with the student learning outcomes and QSEN
competencies. The student is given a specific cultural scenario upon arriving to the simulation lab; the student then acts out how to handle the situation as a culturally competent nurse while being videotaped. Video debriefing occurs with the student and nurse educator, which allows reflection on the performance. After the debriefing, the student completes a reflective activity. This activity provides a safe environment for students to practice and expand their cultural communication skills.
