Course Description:

While America continues to become a more culturally diverse country with new immigrants arriving and those already here raising families, healthcare providers in the United States still largely come from a white, non-Hispanic background — almost 82%. Unfamiliar languages, beliefs, cultural practices, eating habits, etc., all present potential obstacles to the nurse providing care.
The three-part series, “Cultural Awareness in Healthcare” has been updated with new information and a more engaging look to help the nurse effectively recognize the challenges faced in providing care to a multicultural population and develop strategies to address these needs.
