In addition, the authors pointed out efforts for multicultural learning must involve system wide changes. Similarly, Grossman et al (1998) illuminated incongruence between stated philosophical values related to multicultural learning and actual practice. Yet, lack of cultural knowledge, sensitivity and awareness was most frequently identified by participants as a critical issue related to cultural diversity in their nursing programs (Grossman et al 1998). Institutional commitment to cultural diversity and creating a climate for teaching culture care should be demonstrated in the institution’s mission statement, by financial resources for faculty, staff and student development and through faculty and students valuing diversity and multiculturalism (Schmitz et al 1992).

Students were confused by the university focus on embracing diversity while encouraging cultural events and ethnic organisations that focused on differences that separated groups of students. Students offered the following suggestions for faculty interested in facilitating development of cultural sensitivity: small group activities to encourage the opportunity to work with people different from oneself; promoting discussion and tolerance; focus on experiential learning versus lecture; and a course on cultural diversity incorporated into the curriculum (Yearwood et al 2002).

Conducting a larger scale research study is predicted to further support and substantiate the Culture Care Theory; thus contributing to building knowledge for the discipline of nursing and specifically the practice of nursing in the areas of nursing education and the provision of culturally congruent and competent care.
