+Introduction to the TheoristBorn in 1925, Leininger began her career during world war II.1948: Nursing diploma from St Anthony school of nursing in Denver, Colorado1950: Bachelors in Nursing from St Scholastica in Atchison, Kanas1954: Masters in Psychiatric and mental health nursing from Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.1965: Ph.D. in cultural and social anthropology from University of Washington, Seattle(Ray,2013)
+Introduction to the TheoristIn the 1950s, she worked as a child guidance nurse. She observed that children responded differently to care based on cultural background.Based on these observations, the culture care theory was founded.My rationale for choosing Leininger was how her theory intertwined with my nursing practice. I work in a hospital where I encounter patients from different cultural backgrounds. This theory aids me in assessing patient’s needs based on their cultural preferences. I am interested in being a culturally competent nurse.
