Abstract

Nurse educators are responsible for preparing nursing students for safe and effective practice. Culturally competent care ensures patient safety and promotes positive patient outcomes. Twenty-first century society has bowed to globalization, immigration, emerging cultures, and subcultures. This phenomenon necessitates a broadening of the nurse educator’s perception of culture and strategies to facilitate student learning and preparation for effective practice. This article will examine the existing definition of culture and subcultures and discuss some strategies that nurse educators can use to facilitate student learning.
