Reflect on the TCN Self-Assessment

Week 1 discussion

Models of Transcultural Nursing

The Course Outcome covered this week is CO1.

CO1: Identify theories, concepts, and beliefs related to transcultural nursing. (PO1)

Chapter 1 of Andrews and Boyle (2016) discusses Leininger’s Sunrise Model of transcultural nursing. However, other models are described and are important to acknowledge, as well. An outstanding resource may be found at the Transcultural Nursing Society’s (TCNS) website.

Locate the website for TCNS (http://www.tcns.org (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.). Click on the Theories tab.

Besides the Leininger and Purnell models, describe one model.

Explain how you may use the model in your practice setting.

Week 2 discussion

Transcultural Nursing Skills Self-Assessment

The Course Outcomes covered this week are CO2 and CO4.

CO2: Describe cultural differences related to drugs.

CO4: Perform a culturally competent nursing assessment. (PO7)

Nurses complete assessments on individuals on a daily basis. Self-assessments are in order before considering our abilities to provide culturally competent nursing care.

Complete Transcultural Nursing Skills Self-Assessment Form (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.

Note the number of No answers in your self-assessment. Share one or two of your No answers with your classmates, and describe how you will convert the No to a Yes over the next few weeks.

What interventions are needed to turn each No into a Yes response?

Week 3 discussion

Healthcare Needs of a Specific Minority Group

The Course Outcomes covered this week are below.

CO2: Communicate effectively with culturally diverse individuals, families, and organizations. (PO3)

CO4: Perform a culturally competent nursing assessment. (PO7)

Each of our communities is comprised of groups that we consider minorities.

Name and describe the healthcare needs of a minority group in your community/city.

Describe the characteristics of the group and opportunities you see for improving the health of the group.

How can you use your enhanced communication skills to share your concerns with the “powers that be” in your community to improve their healthcare status?

Week 4 discussion

Common Illnesses and the Use of CAM

The Course Outcome covered this week is CO1.

CO1: Identify theories, concepts, and beliefs related to transcultural nursing. (PO1)

We encounter patients after they have explored various avenues of self-help. At times, these avenues involve the use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Our readings this week are very helpful.

Select a common (or not so common) illness or condition that affects a specific ethnic group.

Identify two (2) CAM therapies that patients are likely to try before seeking (or in addition to) allopathic, osteopathic, or ayurvedic medical intervention for the illness or condition.

Discuss the effectiveness of each therapy you identified.

Note: Do not discuss an illness or condition about which a classmate has already posted. The diversity will lead to a more robust discussion. There are many examples you may discuss, including sickle-cell disease in African Americans, constipation in the elderly people, or the use of Reiki for mental and emotional healing by Japanese people. Think of others from your practice settings or prelicensure experiences.

Week 5 discussion

Transcultural Perspectives Across Lifespan

The Course Outcomes covered this week are below.

CO2: Communicate effectively with culturally diverse individuals, families, and organizations. (PO3)

CO Perform a culturally competent nursing assessment. (PO7)

This week

select and read one of the chapters of particular interest to you listed in Assignments under Readings;

discuss what information you should obtain to develop and implement culturally appropriate plans of care for an individual of this group; and

share a brief case study or exemplar as a way to share your formation.

Examples:

Childbearing: A young Hasidic mom just emigrated from Israel to the United States. She is at term and comes to your Mother/Baby Unit for delivery.

Children: Oman is 5 years old. His family members are refugees from Syria. At the local community center a routine blood sugar test indicated his results were very high. He now needs hospitalized for control.

Adult: Luca moved to the United States after earning her BSN in Manila, Philippines. She works three jobs so that she can send money home to her family. She needs a treatment for breast cancer, but taking time off from any of the jobs will create a hardship on her local and extended family at home.

Older Adult: KC is 72 years old and came to the United States many years ago from Ghana. He is divorced, his children do not live in the area, and you often see him at the senior citizen’s center where you volunteer. He has uncontrolled hypertension.

Mental Health: Arkady was born in the former Soviet Union. He has battled depression most of his adult life and has been hospitalized again in the mental health facility 30 miles from his family for a suicide attempt. Although he has health insurance, the benefits for his diagnosis are about to expire.

Week 6 discussion

Standards of Practice

The Course Outcome covered this week is CO3.

CO3: Describe standards of practice for culturally competent nursing care. (PO6)

The basis for our lesson this week came from the Standards of Practice for Culturally Competent Nursing Care Executive Summary, Transcultural Nursing Society: https://www.tcns.org/standards (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site..

Assume your nursing leader has decided that the department needs to better incorporate these Standards of Practice for Culturally Competent Nursing Care into the nursing care delivery model at your organization. There are 12 Standards.

Download and read the Executive Summary, and select one of the 12 standards as the basis for the discussion. Think about the standards as they relate to culturally sensitive care.

Explain how your department or organization currently gives credence to this standard.

If it does not, from your newfound knowledge, offer suggestions of how the standard can be incorporated into patient care in your department or organization.

Note: Make sure you choose a standard that another student has not selected. Keep in mind that each of us does not work in an acute care setting, so examples from other practice settings will add to a more robust discussion.

Week 7 discussion

Diversity in the Healthcare Workforce

The Course Outcome covered this week is CO2.

CO2: Communicate effectively with culturally diverse individuals, families, and organizations. (PO3)

As nurses, we work with providers and healthcare team members whose native language is not English. In fact, some of you may have interviewed a non-native English speaker for your Course Project. This diversity may lead to challenges with communication and the nurse being “caught in the middle.”

Reflect on your newfound knowledge of transcultural nursing.

Share an example of miscommunication that occurred as a result of this diversity and whether an adverse outcome resulted.

Describe how the miscommunication could have been and will be prevented in the future.

Week 8 discussion

Global Nursing Opportunities

The Course Outcome covered this week is CO5.

CO5: Discuss the implications of global nursing for healthcare delivery systems. (PO7)

Reflect on the TCN Self-Assessment you completed during Week 2, and determine if your score changed.

Perform an Internet search, and locate one Global Nursing Opportunity sponsored by a professional organization that utilizes nurses as either paid employees or volunteers. Name the organization, and include a working link. In your own words, share the organization’s mission.

Share two contributions you could make to the organization (patients served) based on your current experiences and future career aspirations based on your learning from this course.

Identify personal opportunities for improvement in providing culturally competent care.
