Transcultural Nursing: Setting a Course in Turbulent Times

Now, more than ever, are transcultural nurses called upon to provide direction in the midst of the global pandemic. Record numbers are displaced due to war, climate change, food insecurity, and political unrest. Civil protest and unrest are occurring everywhere. The limitations of the global healthcare system have become apparent and never before has the influence social determinants been viewed as a priority. Transcultural nurses cannot address and resolve these challenges alone. It is imperative that we partner and collaborate transnationally and transdisciplinary to assure safe and effective culturally competent care in these challenging times. In 2021, transcultural nurses will join forces with other nursing organizations and healthcare networks to achieve the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (STGs).
