Newly revised and updated, Delivering Culturally Competent Nursing Care, Second Edition explores the cross-cultural interactions and conflicts between nurses and the diverse array of patients they may see. Culturally-competent nurses can cut through preconceptions, reduce health disparities, and deliver the high-quality care. Patients come from a variety of countries, hold specific religious beliefs, or identify with a unique sexual orientation. Nurses, as frontline providers for diverse populations, are expected to treat each patient with empathy and respect.

Delivering Culturally Competent Nursing Care, Second Edition addresses what it really means to be culturally competent in nursing practice. Representatives of specific cultural, racial, ethnic, and socio-political groups, nurses bring their own values, beliefs, and attitudes to all interactions with patients and with one another. Whether nurses choose to make their attitudes explicit or not, they ultimately influence the quality of care they provide to patients. Content is grounded in the Staircase model, which builds upon the nurse’s own self-assessment to identify personal limitations, find strategies to improve cultural competence, and progress to the next level. This text features case scenarios that apply the process of cultural competence to different healthcare situations.
