520 _aResearch on the cultural competence in nursing care in Taiwan is scarce. Even though Taiwan is home to a multicultural and multiethnic society, little information has been documented regarding the level of cultural competence among its health care professionals. The aim of this study was to investigate the level of cultural competence among Taiwanese nurses. This study employed a quantitative design using a self-report online survey. Research findings indicated that Taiwanese nurses had low to moderate level of cultural competence. They perceived themselves as being not culturally competent when caring for clients from culturally and ethnically diverse backgrounds. While Taiwanese nurses scored high on cultural sensitivity and awareness, they scored low on cultural knowledge and skills. Cultural competence correlated with continuing education and years of nursing work experience. Based on these findings, recommendations were provided to improve nurses’ cultural competence by implementing curricular change and by advocating for culturally appropriate policies and guidelines in nursing practice.
