Transcultural Nursing

NYIT's nursing program prepares students for a specialization in transcultural nursing.

Patient care and advocacy has always been at the heart of the nursing profession, and at the heart of NYIT's nursing program. And transcultural nursing takes patient care to an even higher level by incorporating the cultural beliefs and experiences of patients and their health-care professionals. Treatment plans for patients can be tailored to culturally based health-care practices, beliefs, traditions, communication styles, family roles, dietary preferences, and more.

Transcultural nursing provides a vital, holistic approach to care that gives nurses the ability to go beyond treating a patient's symptoms, allowing nurses to offer more complete care within a context that meets a patient's needs as fully as possible.

NYIT's degree program incorporates this approach in the classroom and during the clinical practice phases of the program, providing students with the ability to become highly effective health care practitioners in a variety of settings.
