Transcultural Nursing: A Guide to Resources: Home

This library research guide provides TU Nursing students with suggestions for resources to use in completing the transcultural nursing assignment for NSG 1012.



Mosby's Dictionary of Medicine, Nursing, & Health Professionals provides this definition for the term "transcultural nursing":

A field of nursing, founded by Madeleine Leininger, in which the nurse transcends ethnocentricity and practices nursing in other cultural environments. Because current nursing process and theory are not culturally bound and the needs of each person are considered individually, transcultural nursing is a part of all nursing practice.

A great deal of information related to this important area of nursing is available from the library and other sources, although sometimes it can be difficult to locate.  This library guide is intended to point out specific resources you can use to complete the NSG 1012 assignment.
