This is a concise, how-to book about cultural competency for community health nursing practice. It is written for undergraduate and graduate nursing students and practicing nurses who are not familiar with population-based, culturally sensitive nursing care. Each chapter of this book begins with a paragraph overview and learning objectives. Tables, boxes, and illustrations are used throughout the book to highlight key information. One consistent element is a box feature that includes key assessment questions for the material being covered. This book can be used as a supplement to a primary textbook or in conjunction with journal articles and other materials used in a community health nursing course for undergraduate and graduate nursing students. This book differs from the competing books listed below in that it focuses on an important element of nursing care—cultural competency—and provides a unique and much needed framework and approach to working with diverse populations.
