1- While on break from school, Jose, a nursing student, discusses his coursework with his family. His parents are intrigued and ask a lot of questions, especially when he mentions transcultural nursing, something they’ve never heard of before.
-How should Jose describe transcultural nursing? What should he include about the history and theory behind transcultural nursing?
2- Use an example nursing practice setting that incorporates transcultural nursing theory. Choose one of the following: A health clinic with primarily low-income migrant farm workers in rural Texas; an ICU with mainly trauma patients; a telemetry unit with patients with heart disease; or a neonatal ICU with very premature infants.
-How does the specific setting impact the need for and delivery of transcultural care
3- Courtney, a nurse on the pediatric floor of a hospital, spent 2 years volunteering through the Peace Corps in Honduras.Describe how her experience may be similar to Leininger’s development of transcultural nursing theory.
-How has Courtney’s experience in the Peace Corps potentially enhanced her ability to provide culturally competent care?
4- A nurse on a surgical unit mentions that she would like to know more about various cultures and how to take care of patients with diverse cultural backgrounds.
-How could you use the Andrews/Boyle TIP Model to support her wish to provide culturally competent care?
-Give an example of how the surgical nurse might use the Andrews/Boyle TIP Model in her everyday practice.
5- Lisa, an emergency room nurse, discusses with her colleagues how important it is to be aware of the immigration trends and the health issues in the United States and the world. She checks the Centers for Disease Control website at least once a week. She also received a care award last year for her compassionate care for all patients.
-Discuss the ways that her awareness may influence her nursing care.Describe at least one additional way that a nurse may continue to learn about cultures.
6- A family who requests privacy five times during the day to pray wants to have a sign on the door during their prayer time. The wife of the patient appears very anxious about the accommodation. The patient is a 45-year-old Muslim man who had a heart attack and is in the step-down telemetry room.
– How should the nurse respond in this situation? How should the organization respond. How can organizational and individual cultural assessments affect the plan of care?
7- Ana Maria is a 35-year-old computer intelligence and security expert who recently moved to the United States from Spain. She doesn’t speak or read English well. The nurse describes a need for a Spanish interpreter for interactions with the patient.
– What additional information do you need to obtain from the patient and the chart prior to securing a Spanish interpreter?
(naver assume that because she is from spain she have to speak spanish)
Discussion: Expertutor Transcultural Nurse
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS
Discussion Questions (DQ)
Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality
Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes
I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.
Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
