Topic 2: Culturally Competent Care
A broad range of cultures exists in the world today. Nursing professionals often interact with people from cultural backgrounds that differ from their own.

How would you apply the Purnell Model to future cultural encounters? Which one of the twelve domains of culture from the Purnell Model do you feel is most important? Why?
