Cultural competence is a component of the 2008 Essentials of Baccalaureate Nursing Education. Nationally, graduation exit testing has found that students continue to score as culturally aware, rather than culturally competent. This twelve article review of research literature identified curricular approaches and teaching strategies that have been found to create a student's desire to provide and demonstrate cultural competent in practice. Findings supported the continuance of a thread of culture content within all nursing theory and clinical courses through inclusion of local or international, live or simulated service-learning. To facilitate contemplation of their progression journey of cultural awareness to competence, students should maintain a cultural activities self-reflection journal at all levels to support graduates as they transition into their professional practice.
