Advanced Certificate in Cultural Competence
Reweida Othman
I learned a great deal during this course not only from all of the readings, videos, guest speakers, and lectures, but also from the wealth of knowledge the students in my cohort shared with me during our online discussions. I hope to use my new knowledge to assist my undergraduate nursing students and my graduate school nurse students to become more culturally competent.
