dc.description.abstractBackground: Educating undergraduate nursing students to perform care coordination and practice with cultural competence are important considerations for nursing programs. Method: This project, designed to enhance undergraduate nursing education, introduced cultural competence learning modules into the curriculum and a clinical experience developing care plans for vulnerable patients in a community clinic. Students completed pre- and post-intervention surveys related to cultural awareness and responded to guided reflection questions following their clinical experience. Results: Survey analysis indicated statistically significant improvement in student’s perception of their cultural awareness overall. Guided reflection content analysis revealed themes related to understanding the role of nursing in care coordination, working with interprofessional teams, and increased mindfulness related to vulnerable patients. Conclusion: Enhanced education for undergraduate nursing students related to cultural competence and a clinical experience providing care coordination for vulnerable patients enhanced students’ cultural awareness and understanding of care coordination as a professional nursing role.en_US
