Very good job with the presentation of cultural competence. The first link http://www.sandiego.edu/nursing/theory/ does not work. It should be http://www.sandiego.edu/academics/nursing/theory/ Also the georgtown and some other sites does not work.

The case studies are well done, and applicable to a wide variety of nursing settings. Used in the classroom by having students in a small clinical group choose a culture, and read one of the case studies underneath it. Each was followed by a brief group discussion.

Cultural competence is so important in the nursing profession. In order to provide the best care possible it is critical that we understand the cultural customs of those we care for. This website was interesting and informative. I especially liked reading the case studies as it brought to life some of the things we might see in our practice.
