Abstract:
Nursing faculty and external stakeholders have a commitment to educate nursing students with cultural competence. Ongoing program evaluation strengthens curriculum development related to cultural care. Intercultural sensitivity is a component of cultural communication in the affective domain. The Intercultural Sensitivity Scale (ISS) is used to examine differences based on student level in the nursing program. Alphas for four of the five subscales of the ISS indicated validity for this study. MANOVA was used created a linear combination of the response variables with the resulting composite score to determine differences between student levels. After calculating the Composite Score for each participant, a one-way ANOVA tested the null assumption that sophomores and juniors reported equal scores. This ANOVA yielded significant results that the junior scores were significantly stronger than the sophomores for the subscales of intercultural sensitivity. Educators may benefit from planned educational strategies to evaluate program of study related to culture
