A Handbook for Culturally Informed Community Nursing PracticeeBook - 2012
This is a concise, how-to book about cultural competency for community health nursing practice. It is written for undergraduate and graduate nursing students and practicing nurses who are not familiar with population-based, culturally sensitive nursing care. Each chapter of this book begins with a paragraph overview and learning objectives. Tables, boxes, and illustrations are used throughout the book to highlight key information. One consistent element is a box feature that includes key assessment questions for the material being covered. This book can be used as a supplement to a primary textbook or in conjunction with journal articles and other materials used in a community health nursing course for undergraduate and graduate nursing students. This book differs from the competing books listed below in that it focuses on an important element of nursing care-cultural competency-and provides a unique and much needed framework and approach to working with diverse populations.
