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.
