Cultural competence is a necessary skill for nurses. It requires ongoing learning for continuous improvement in the healthcare setting. Nurses who are knowledgeable in providing culturally appropriate nursing care are able to meet patients' needs by building trust and minimizing cultural pain. Providing nursing care with nurses who have advanced nursing degrees and knowledge of culture and international patient care is an effective model for the ambulatory setting. Trans-global travel for healthcare is increasing therefore a nursing model designed to meet the culture care needs of international patient care is required. This nursing model describes culturally appropriate nursing care in one general medical setting.
