Abstract

Cultural competence has been proposed as one way to reduce health disparities in racial and ethnic minority populations. Nursing program accreditation standards mandate the inclusion of cultural competence concepts in the nursing curricula; however, are nursing educators prepared to teach culturally competency concepts and do nurse educators feel competent? The purposes of this article are to examine the literature about nurse educators' comfort with cultural competency concepts and to provide some suggestions for improvement.
