Abstract

Healthcare environments increasingly are becoming culturally diverse. A project to incorporate multicultural issues in curricula, identify cross-cultural student learning opportunities, and increase faculty skills in teaching transcultural concepts is described. Through regional networking, faculty members identified barriers to teaching cross-cultural concepts and strategies to address those barriers. Recommendations call for proactive approaches for sharing resources to strengthen cultural dimensions in schools of nursing, particularly in rural areas that lack cultural diversity.
