A competent nurse must have the outlooks,

A
comprehensive literature search was performed using the databases, CINAHL,
PubMed, Medline, and OVID using the term cultural competent care and cultural
competence training.  The search results
were limited to 2012-2107 yielding 5361 articles.  The search was further narrowed down to
cultural competency training of nurses, and 151 articles were retrieved.  Articles with cultural competency training or
effectiveness of cultural competence programs were included in the literature
review.  A total of 10 articles were
chosen based on the applicability to the DNP project.  With the rapid rise in the culturally diverse
populations, cultural competence training is considered as an effective
intervention that empowers nurse to give culturally competent care that
increases client satisfaction (Govere & Govere, 2016). 

According to Truong, Paradies, and Priest
(2014), there is a wealth of literature related to cultural competency and the
effectiveness of culturally competent training in improving client health
outcome.   Clifford, Mccalman, Bainbridge,
and Tsey (2015) stated that professional accreditation standards require
cultural competence training of the staff  be incorporated into the organizational policy
to improve health outcome and increase patient experience. Govere and Govere
(2016) explained in his study that it is essential that nursing staff to be
culturally competent to provide culturally specific care and to increase client
satisfaction.   Loftin, Hartin, Branson,
and Reyes (2013) stated that a culturally competent nurse must have the
outlooks, knowledge, and skills necessary to provide quality care to the
diverse population they serve.

preconceptions, assumptions toward other cultures (Campinha-Bacote, 2011).   Renzaho, Romios, Crock, and Sonderlund
(2013) stated that the lack of awareness about cultural differences could lead
to a compromise nurse-client relationships making it difficult for the client
to achieve appropriate care.  A systematic review of reviews by Truong,
Paradies, and Priest (2014) indicated that six of the eight reviews that
examined the effectiveness of cultural competency training found evidence of
improvement is staff’s awareness, knowledge, skills, and attitude.  Renzaho, Romios, Crock, and
Sonderlund (2013) conducted a systematic review of the literature examining the
effectiveness of patient-centered care (PCC) models incorporating cultural
competence perspective found that significant improvements were evident in the
staff’s knowledge, awareness and cultural sensitivity (p
