What is "Transcultural Nursing?"

The practice of transcultural nursing addresses the cultural dynamics that influence the nurse–client relationship. Because of its focus on this specific aspect of nursing, a theory was needed to study and explain outcomes of this type of care. Leininger creatively developed the Theory of Culture Care:
Diversity and Universality with the goal to provide culturally congruent wholistic care.
