Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements
Students must submit all journals through the Assignment Tool
The journal due dates are listed on the document titled, “Course Schedule.” and in the Weekly Modules. These due dates are not open to debate or negotiation. As a senior nursing student, your status as a professional nurse is imminent. As such you are expected to manage time effectively and make submissions of critical course requirements on or before due dates. Students not faculty are responsible for deadlines and submitting assignments on or before due dates. Failure to submit the journals will result in zero points for the assignment.

Something to Think About:
On a 1-10 scale (1=not so important & 10=critically important) what number would quantify the import of using Transcultural Care Models as a framework in planning, implementing and evaluating nursing care delivery for the community? Do you think there is a positive relationship between delivering “culturally competent” care and “effective” nursing care delivery–That is, the more culturally competent the care, the more effective the nursing intervention, as measured by the clients (community) outcome?
