NURS 207 : Cultural Concepts in Healthcare

Culture and care are crucial for human survival. Understanding the cultural diversity and its components, such as distinct practices, beliefs and values, communication patterns, mental process, behaviors, traditions, and philosophy of clients can assist healthcare providers to respond in a culturally sensitive manner. Cultural diversity is used to implement healthcare services and programs. Students will explore the meaning of being human, caring, empathetic, and understanding of the healthcare needs of a multi-cultural society and review care processes to provide culturally diverse nursing care. This course satisfies the CORE 200 requirement.
