ACC-Lynwood Evening VN Students Celebrate Cultural Awareness Day
Knowledge of science and medicine isn’t the only thing you need to become a great nurse.
The students in American Career College-Lynwood’s new evening weekend vocational nursing program (VNEW) learned the importance of cultural sensitivity in nursing during their Cultural Awareness day in late June.
For this learning experience, the VNEW students created presentations to celebrate cultures from around the world, such as Japan, Samoa and the Middle East.
Topics in the presentations included politics, religion, food and attire. The presentations allowed our student to showcase their creativity by adding props to their presentations. One student made a kimono by hand for their presentation
During the VNEW Cultural Awareness Day, students were encouraged to actively discuss how they would be able to apply a higher level of cultural sensitivity and awareness to their patient care.
