Manage Discussion Entry Hi Iris, great discussion post! I have to agree with you on what you said that you aren’t uncomfortable working with other ethnic/ cultural groups than your own but do feel more comfortable working with those of your same ethnic group. I couldn’t agree more and feel the same way. I have had many patients that were Hispanic and once they found out that I spoke Spanish it was like they instantly felt comfortable and its like they could trust me because we had that in common. I also do agree with you that we need to educate ourselves as nurses on the different cultures out there because we work with many patients and are bound to work with patients that come from different cultures and we need to educate ourselves prior to our interactions with them.

I think his sister in particularly has taken on more culture than my husband because she has the physical appearance of those cultures. My husband looks White, and you would not know his background unless you ask him. With that said, being a part of his family has helped in my journey to cultural

competency. I also never traveled out of the United States as a child, and my parents had no interest in culture. Now that I have married a pilot, and when it is actually safe to fly around the world again, I look forward to going to different countries and exploring their culture. I would like my first stop to be Spain, as the last name Carlos is from my husband’s Spanish heritage. I also took four years of Spanish in grade school and would like to practice my Castilian Spanish in Spain.
