Title: Demographic profile and self-reported cultural competence among thomasian senior nursing students


Biography: Patricia Denise V


Cultural competence is important in nursing practice. Students study this baccalaureate degree in high hopes to pursue their careers abroad. It is indeed a challenge to render quality nursing care in a clinical setting where there are clients with different cultural backgrounds. Various factors play an important role in determining the cultural competence of a healthcare professional, such as Cultural Knowledge, Cultural Awareness and Cultural Encounter. This study was conducted at the University of Santo Tomas - College of Nursing. A descriptive-correlational research design was utilized in the study in order to determine the relationship between the different variables associated with the level of cultural competence among Thomasian senior nursing students. The study showed that Thomasian Senior Nursing students have a high perceived measure of cultural competence in terms of the mean scores of all three constructs, however, age and gender did not show any correlation to one another.
