Nursing faculty are increasingly confronted with nursing students who are culturally diverse. No longer can traditional educational strategies be expected to work with everyone, and strategies must be selected which meet the needs of the students. This article addresses the need to adapt to diversity in the classroom as well as how to personalize strategies to the needs of the students, plan appropriate interventions, and evaluate interventions for effectiveness. Use of the Giger-Davidhizar assessment model can assist the faculty in assessing for cultural differences and thus can provide a base on which to plan effective interventions.
