Cultural competency in nursing is most essential in providing quality patient care. Cultural competence requires the nurse to be sensitive to patient‘s cultural needs predispositions and health risks that are related to specific cultures, addressing these as needed. This writer work in a Care Center that is much diversified culturally. There is this patient that will not respond to a female staff in the early hours of the day for cares. It was a challenge until the investigation revealed that in that patient’s culture only their wives are allowed to see them before 5.am. This patient felt honored and respected after the investigation. It was wired for the nurses in the unit, but a great accomplishment for the patient. Indeed, patient satisfaction is Patient- Centered care which every culturally competent nurse must practice in this diverse population.
