Transcultural Nursing in Community
The Transcultural Nursing in Community track prepares nurses for advanced nursing practice in culturally diverse communities. The curriculum is grounded in nursing science, public health principles, theory-guided practice, and transcultural care.
Emphasis is on reaching populations that are underserved by traditional care systems and who exist outside of the social mainstream. As such, the program provides rich alternative teaching and learning opportunities locally and internationally.
The Transcultural Nursing track prepares nurses to apply for advanced certification in Transcultural Nursing through the International Transcultural Nursing Society and/or certification in Holistic Nursing through the American Holistic Nurses Credentialing Corporation (AHNCC), which is a separate entity from American Holistic Nurses Association.
Students will take a total of 33 semester credit hours — eight 3-semester credit hour courses + 9 semester credits of practica equal to 405 ‘clock’ hours of practice. Four courses and the related practica make up the Advanced Nursing Core that all Master of Arts in Nursing students must take, with the remaining four courses and practica focused on transcultural nursing content and skill development.
