Abstract

With the dramatic increase in the number of foreign-born residents in many U.S. communities, it is increasingly important that nursing education address the requirements of culturally competent care. The author describes the experience of establishing a teaching and learning environment to foster this concept. The setting was a health assessment course with students from 13 countries of origin. Emphasis is placed on effective teaching strategies, student contributions to the process, and the challenges that remain.
