Transcultural nursing and cultural aspects of care include awareness of individual and cultural variations in health status, human development, values, beliefs, attitudes, history and environment and how these differences affect the need for and acceptance of nursing care within a global context.
This philosophy and conceptual framework is used in the development of all College of Nursing and Health Sciences course content, mapping of curriculum, student and program learning objectives. The College is in a unique position as a result of geographic location and institutional affiliation, to prepare professional nurses to improve the well‐being of complex, multicultural and diverse populations.
