dc.description.abstract Background The purpose of this study is to formulate a better understanding of cultural awareness, and the importance knowledge of different cultures has for health care providers working with diverse patients. The objective of the research is to identify cultural awareness of health care providers so that knowledge of different cultures can have a positive effect on healthcare delivery. Definitions of cultural awareness by theorists will be discussed, and a literature review of multiple journal articles will continue to clarify the definition of cultural awareness. The results of previous research on cultural awareness will be reviewed. Leininger, a nurse, and innovator in the field of transcultural nursing, developed a culture-specific model of the theory that is and is proposed to guide this study. Research Question: “What is the level of cultural awareness among nursing students in a Southern California University?” Methods: The study design proposed is a quantitative, descriptive, cross-sectional design to assess the level of cultural awareness among senior-level nursing students. The cultural awareness scale (CAS) is a self-administered research instrument designed to measure cultural awareness in nursing students. The CAS will be the instrument used for this study along with a demographic questionnaire provided to the BSN students. The study will be conducted using paper and pencil during a traditional BSN senior-level course at a School of Nursing. Key Words: Cultural competency, cultural awareness, cultural diversity, cultural knowledge, transcultural, nursing care, nursing students. en_US
