NURS 6512: Advanced Health Assessment Initial Post Diversity and Health Assessment Cultural competence is the gradually developed capacity of nurses and healthcare providers to provide safe and quality healthcare to clients of different background (Duan-Ying, 2016). Cultural competence involves recognizing one’s own culture, values, and biases, and using effective patient-centered communication skills (Ball et al., 2015). To be culturally competent, the practitioner must be able to respond to the cultural diversity of her or his patients and adapt to the unique needs of patients from the cultural and spiritual background different from her or his own (Ball et al., 2015).
