Discussion board: HCC Nursing Program
Discussion board due by Tuesday, 11/15/22 @ 11pm.
Caring is a core concept of the HCC Nursing Program. As you likely recall from your Fundamentals course, Madeleine Leninger is one of the pioneer researchers in the field of transcultural nursing. For this discussion you will first need to review the Position Statement of the Transcultural Nursing Society (TCNS). As you read, focus on the Historical Perspectives on Human Rights. After reading this statement, reflect upon and answer the following:
- Does “ethnocentrism, lack of awareness and moral blindness perpetuate and exacerbate
healthcare inequities?” (TCNS position statement). If so, how?
- Could nurses reduce healthcare inequities by caring on a one-by-one basis? If so, how?
- Does caring have to be within the client’s cultural framework to be competent? Why or
Next, think of a question for the class that continues our discussion about the general topic of
caring in nursing and post for your classmates’ feedback.
