Abstract

Cultural competence is a part of professional nursing practice and should be integrated into each course of nursing education. In a rural Midwest community, the clinical opportunities for cultural encounters in critical care may be limited. One strategy to promote cultural competence in the critical care nursing class of a baccalaureate program was to assign narrative responses to case scenarios. These case scenarios were discussed in the context of cultural competence.
