I have been a transcultural nurse for 25 years working in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Central America with particular focus on pediatrics and community health nursing. During the past 7 years I have taken APU nursing students to both India and Rwanda to teach them transcultural nursing skills, cultural competency, and community health nursing in developing nations.
