Cultural Competence in nursing practice

This assignment is a 2-3 page APA paper demonstrating the student’s ability to describe the nursing needs of a culture. The student will interview a friend, classmate, or family member (if that family member is of a different culture from your own, this can include grandparents, stepparents, etc.) of a different culture from your own. This person should not be in the nursing profession. Do not limit yourself. Think of another culture or lifestyle you would like to learn about and search out someone who would be willing to share their culture with you. The focus of the interview is to investigate the following questions: • How do people of different cultures and lifestyles want to receive healthcare? • What are their perceptions of how people from that culture or lifestyle are treated when receiving healthcare? • How can nurses provide culturally appropriate care for patients from their cultural or lifestyle background? What other information does the interviewee think is important for nurses to know when taking care of people from other cultural or lifestyle backgrounds? Write a 2-3 page paper (not including the title page and reference page) in APA format to discuss the answers you found during your interview. The paper should be narrative format. The references should include 1 course required textbook, 1 peer-reviewed journal article, and 1 professional website. The instructions and grading criteria for the assignment are attached to the assignment and linked with the appropriate Learning Module. The paper will be submitted through the Sakai assignment tool.
