Overview

The purpose of this study was to determine if a relationship or association existed between a registered nurse's years of experience and the attainment of cultural competency in the delivery of health care services. The researcher cites this self-perceived belief of competency in the nursing workforce and the nationally documented lack of cultural competence that has been linked to healthcare disparities and inequities for minorities. Nurses, as health professionals with the most continuous and direct contact with patients and their families, are perceived in the hospital setting as the experts in cultural healthcare matters. The history of race and healthcare in the United States is explored. The researcher investigated the connection in the undocumented and unpublished historical context of race and healthcare, and the possible misconception about the attainment of cultural competence. A theoretical framework of cultural competency is presented and a review is made of contemporary cultural competency models and applications. The model chosen for this study is the Campinha-Bacote (2002) model, The Process of Cultural Competence in the Delivery of Healthcare Services. A sample population of 270 nurses were given Campinha-Bacote's (2007) Inventory for Assessing the Process of Cultural Competency among Healthcare Professionals - Revised (IAPCC-R). Using cross-tabulation tables, Pearson chi-square test, and analysis of variance (ANOVA), it is determined that a relationship or association did not exist for the sample population with regard to years of experience. Using the analysis of variance, a difference was confirmed with the other predictor variables of education, interactions, and cultural diversity coursework.
