Cultural Competencies for Nurses: Impact on Health and Illness by Linda Dayer-Berenson will make it easier for students to compare and contrast cultural beliefs and practices among various groups [and] help students understand concepts such as cultural diversities, health care disparities, as well as global health issues related to cultural differences. It is a great resource for all nurses. I would definitely prescribe it for my students, as well as keep it as a resource for my own use.
