For this assignment you will write a rough draft of a compare-and-contrast essay on the topic of cultural sensitivity and health care.
Valuing diversity in our patient population increases the effectiveness of nursing care, via culturally-sensitive health interventions, health promotion, and disease prevention activities. Cross-cultural knowledge also allows nurses to educate their patients better, and to be accepted by them more fully.
For this essay, select a culture other than your own, and discuss how widely-held beliefs about health and wellness in that culture may contrast or compare with beliefs in your own culture.
You must use one or two outside resources from the internet, and you must demonstrate correct APA formatting for any quotations or data that you
cite from these sources.
750 – 1000 words (6-7 paragraphs, including introduction with thesis statement, body paragraphs, and conclusion)
Compose your work in a .doc or .docx file type using a word processor (such as Microsoft Word, etc.) and save it frequently to your computer.
