Cultural Diversity is More than Race or Religion You Just Have to Be There!
Sandra K. Cesario, PhD, RNC, FAAN

THE COURSE
NURS 6002 Multicultural Nursing
A 4-day intensive cultural immersion
experience that expands the concept of
experiential learning
Broad definition of culture any group with
common bond, language, or practices
A required course in the PhD Nursing
Science curriculum
Course Description
Focuses on development of the student as a
member of a culture within the context of a
global paradigm. Students will develop an
appreciation for their own culture as well as
appreciation of other cultures. Universal view
will result in the development of a theoretical
framework for the incorporation of cultural
competence at each level of doctoral study
and post-doctoral practice.
Nomination
Provided a personal encounter with many
cultures including food and cultural practices.
This allows me to better connect with each
culture and increased my understanding of
the healthcare needs and challenges various
cultures face.

PLACES WE HAVE VISITED

EVALUATION & REFLECTION
Comments from Past Evaluations
The best aspect of this course was:
Interaction with community leaders and
learning about culturally-appropriate
resources that will improve care
Learning to be open to a wide variation in
health & illness perceptions
Instilled a desire to learn more about the
community in which I live
Reflecting upon the biases that I did not
realize I had
Provided information that is easily applied
to my role as a nurse
Learning that we have unique identities
and ideals, but human-ness crosses all
boundaries
Evolution of Field Experience Itinerary
20 years of feedback regarding relevance
of community experiences has given
students a voice in the evolution of this
course.
My personal belief that cultural awareness
and sensitivity facilitate the acquisition of
attitudes, skills, and knowledge that allow
the nurse to function at the highest level to
promote health equity and social justice.
