Cultural competency is very important in healthcare. Understanding different cultures and world views facilitates increased communication and understanding between patients, providers and family members. Includes many examples of the different cultures in America today and how they approach illness and health.
This Nursing homestudy course, Caring for Patients from Different Cultures, has been approved for 4.0 Nursing Contact Hours by Iowa Board of Nursing Provider #30. It is a textbook-based course that may be started at any time during the year. All materials are mailed to the student within approximately 10 working days of registration and students then have 8-weeks to complete their coursework. Upon completion, students return the completed post-test and evaluation form in the provided postage-paid envelope. The test is reviewed and graded, and based upon a passing score, a certificate is issued. No refunds are issued after the materials are mailed out at the start of a Homestudy course, therefore, the listed refund date on any confirmation does not apply. IMPORTANT: It is vital that you make sure your mailing address in our system is current.
