The purpose of the Course Project is to give the student the opportunity to apply concepts in transcultural nursing by performing a transcultural nursing assessment.

The purpose of Milestone 1 is to identify and describe an adult, non-relative, born outside the US, whose culture is different from yours and is willing to participate in a transcultural nursing assessment during Wk. 6. (Milestone 3).

  1. Review the Course Outcomes for this assignment.
  2. BEFORE beginning this Milestone, make sure you have received “approval” of the individual from your instructor. This must be done during Wk. 1 or 2 of the course. Send your instructor a brief email with the initials of the individual, country of birth, current city/community of residence. Your instructor will reply to your email letting you know it is all right to proceed with Milestone 1 (“approval”).
  3. Review the guidelines for Milestones 1, 2, and 3, paying particular attention to Milestone 1 for this assignment. The guidelines for all of the Milestones are located on the left-hand navigation menu. Also, read the Course Project Overview document located under the Modules Tab. Here you will find more details and helpful tips.
  4. Identify/describe the individual approved by your instructor. This individual:
  • Has been living in a culture other than the one of origin for at least 2 years.
  • Was born outside the United States.
  • Can be a patient, friend, or colleague, such as a physician, or acquaintance, but cannot be a relative.
  • Must be living in your community and must be currently receiving or have previously received healthcare services in your community.
  • Race, ethnicity, language, religion, and culturally based beliefs about healthcare and illness should be quite different from yours.
  • Must speak English. An interpreter/translator is not permitted for the actual assessment, which occurs in Milestone 3 (Week 6).
