An Evaluation of Health Literacy Education: Effects on Cultural Competence, Knowledge, and Attitudes of Associate Degree Nursing Students
MetadataShow full item record
Health literacy and cultural competence in healthcare are now a priority focus of major health organizations. Healthcare professionals realize that patient-centered care is dependent upon clear communication and understanding. Due to the limitations in teaching time available and the amount of information that needs to be covered, student nurses receive minimal education on health literacy and communication methods with limited English Proficient (LEP) patients. This project focused on the development of an educational program for second year Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) students in order to increase cultural competency and health literacy prior to entering the clinical area.
