With each passing year, the United States is becoming more racially, ethnically, and culturally diverse. This growth of diversity is not occurring in our population of healthcare professionals and this lack of parallel growth results in the provision of discordant patient care. Nurses must be educated to be able to negotiate across cultural divides that may occur during our interactions with patients whose cultural background is different from our own. Nurses must become culturally competent to provide safe, high-quality care for diverse patient populations for improved patient outcomes.
