Health care access and outcomes may suffer as a result of their impact on education, power, and resources. In clinical and research training, health profession faculties must address the complex relationships between individual, interpersonal, institutional, social, and political factors that influence health outcomes. As a result, the goals of this paper are to provide examples of culturally sensitive nursing education training strategies. First, assumptions regarding race, culture, ethnicity, and health equity are investigated. Second, an undergraduate cancer case study and a graduate pediatric nursing program are described to demonstrate how cultural models can be used to integrate biomedical and psychosocial content in a course in undergraduate and graduate clinical training.
