Professor’s comment: Hello All,

Looking forward to your completing the Transcultural Nursing Skills Self-Assessment Form.  . (Links to an external site.)So, how many No answers did you have  in your self-assessment?  Share one or two of your No answers with your classmates and I and describe how you will convert the No to a Yes over the next few weeks. I look forward to hearing what sort of interventions you will do to help the no turn to a yes!
