CO3 Describe standards of practice for culturally competent nursing care. (PO 6) The basis for our lesson this week came from the Standards of Practice for Culturally Competent Nursing Care Executive Summary, Transcultural Nursing Society: http://www.tcns.org/TCNStandardsofPractice.html (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. 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. Read the Executive Summary. Select ONE one of the 12 Standards in the Summary. Does your department or /organization currently give credence to this standard? If so, how? Think about the standards as they relate to culturally sensitive care. If not, offer suggestions of how the standard can be incorporated into patient care or your organization as a whole. Note: There are 12 standards, so make sure you choose a standard that another student has not described. We all have different takes on a standard so the standard should be specific for the patient population or organization. The typical number of students in a class means that we should only read about a particular standard twice. And, keep in mind that each of us does not work in an acute care setting, so examples from other practice settings will add to our discussion.
