For this discussion, first, review chapters 1, 2, and 4 in your textbook, Transcultural Concepts in Nursing Care. (https://books.google.com/books?id=XCWKCwAAQBAJ&pri…)
Then, address the following questions:
- In your own words, in one short paragraph each, define each of the following and give an example from your practice (not a list!):
- Cultural baggage
- Cultural imposition
- Cultural congruence
- Define cultural self-assessment and explain why it is important.
- Then, describe the five steps in the process for delivering culturally congruent nursing care.
Your initial post must be posted before you can view and respond to colleagues, must contain minimum of two (2) references, in addition to examples from your personal experiences to augment the topic. The goal is to make your post interesting and engaging so others will want to read/respond to it. Synthesize and summarize from your resources in order to avoid the use of direct quotes, which can often be dry and boring. No direct quotes are allowed in the discussion board posts.
What do you think nursing is? What has most influenced how you see nursing? How do you react to shows that have nurses on them? How do you think this can affect the view of nursing that the general public will have? Have you had family or friends question why you would want to become a nurse? Have you had someone tell you to become a doctor instead? What can we as nurses and nursing students do to positively or negatively affect the image of nursing? This is more of a “personal” discussion and I do not expect you to bring in resources, unless you want to. If you have not already done so, please review the rubric for discussion posts-they need to be “substantial”- have depth and your answers need to be substantial and carry forward the conversation.
