healthcare professionals from around the globe will have the opportunity to engage in dialogue,
learning, and discovery surrounding the field of culturally competent and equitable healthcare.   The
presentations are diverse and work toward our mission to enhance the quality of culturally
congruent, competent, and equitable care that results in improved health and well-being for people
worldwide.  Transcultural Nursing (TCN) is a theory based humanistic discipline, designed to serve
individuals, organizations, communities, and societies.  Human care/caring is defined within the
context of culture.  Culturally competent care can only occur when culture care values are known
and serve as the foundation for meaningful care.
