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.

Education on palliative care should begin early in prelicensure nursing education because of the complex care needs of patients requiring end-of-life care. In this video and article, the authors explain how they integrated the End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) curriculum into the prelicensure program. The assessed students’ attitudes on end-of-life care using the Frommelt Attitudes Toward Care of the Dying scale (as sophomores, then again as seniors). Seniors were more comfortable caring for patients at end of life and had a better understanding of their role.
