The Role of Curricula in Fostering Cultural Desire in Student Nurses

The purpose of this study was to explore the role of curricula in fostering cultural desire in student nurses. This study utilized a convenience sample of nursing students attending a comprehensive college in Upstate, NY. These students included freshman, sophomores, juniors and senior level nursing majors. The students were invited to voluntarily participate in the study by completing a twenty-nine-question survey constructed by the researcher. A composite score based on responses to survey questions demonstrated the level of cultural desire in each participant. This study revealed no statistical significance among the four class levels. However, students who reported taking a transcultural nursing class showed higher levels of cultural desire than those who had not.
