4th Annual Nursing Education Conference Hosted by the Faculty of Farmingdale State College Department of Nursing

Save the date: Friday October 10th, 2014

Diversity and Multiculturalism in Nursing Education and Practice: An Evidence-based Approach.

In the 21st century, nurses are providing health care within an increasingly multicultural and global society. Developing cultural competence and helping other professionals in developing cultural competence should be a priority in the multicultural workplace and educational setting. Appropriate diversity awareness and sensitivity may positively impact on nurses' interactions with co-workers as well as patient outcomes.

The goal of this conference is to provide information for health professionals about evidence-based practices and best practices in the care of diverse populations and foster development of expertise in culturally competent care.

Nursing faculty, graduate students, and hospital nurse educators are invited to submit abstracts for posters and presentations for this peer-reviewed conference on Friday October 10th, 2014
