The Culturally Competent Nursing Care: A Cornerstone of Caring course that includes 3 part for a total of 9 hours (contact hours for nurses are awarded) is outstanding. I teach Transcultural Nursing (RN to BSN program) every fall and spring semester and use this course. Learners give positive feedback about this course and tell me they share it with other nurses where they work. It is easy to use and does a great job at explaining CLAS and informing nurses about cultural competency. I have also looked at the cultural competency courses for other health care disciplines and it looks fantastic, too--although I am not an expert in those disciplines. I mention this to encourage others to check this out!
