Clinical Nurse Leader course NURS 7100: Integrated Healthcare – Population Health. The presenters will share course objectives and original survey data (N = 118) related to how students perceived the impact of both the clinical and didactic portions of the course on their increased cultural competence. Students were also qualitatively assessed using open-ended questions related to discovering their definition of cultural competence and their major takeaways from the course.
