NUR 350A - Cross-Cultural Nursing

(1 credit)
Based on a Christian worldview, this 1-credit seminar examines transcultural nursing theory from a theoretical, scientific and ethical perspective, along with logistics for the in-country experience, dimensions of global health care and social justice. Emphasis is placed on cultural values, beliefs, norms and practices and their influence on the lived experience of health and illness. Within a context that honors nursing as a human science, performing art and healing ministry to promote shalom with diverse clients in acute care and/or community-based settings, the in-country experience provides students opportunities to explore and engage another culture and participate in the nursing and health care delivery system. Learning experiences include service-learning, experiential learning and faith reflection.

Prerequisite: NUR220 or NUR310A.
