The Course Outcomes covered this week are CO2 and CO4.
CO2: Describe cultural differences related to drugs.
CO4: Perform a culturally competent nursing assessment. (PO7)
Nurses complete assessments on individuals on a daily basis. Self-assessments are in order before considering our abilities to provide culturally competent nursing care.
As a nurse, you perform assessments on individuals all of the time. Before we can provide culturally competent assessments, however, it is important to become aware of our own perspectives and abilities. This week, you will do a self-assessment and begin to think about ways to improve your own cultural competence. Please do the following:
- Complete)Transcultural Nursing Skills Self-Assessment Form
- Note the number of No answers in your self-assessment. Share one or two of your No answers with your classmates, and describe how you will convert the No to a Yes over the next few weeks.
- What interventions are needed to turn each No into a Yes response?
