Title: The effect of intercultural nursing course on nursing students levels of ethnocentrism

Abstract:

Ethnocentrism is the belief of an individual or professional group that their ethnic group or culture is superior or even the best of others. Ethnocentrism is when individuals judge the cultures of others by upholding their own cultural values. Researches indicate the existence of ethnocentrism in university students. The aim of this research is; A comparison of the level of ethnocentrism between students who took and did not take the Intercultural Nursing course. Thus, it will be determined whether the course is effective in reducing the ethnocentric approach, which is one of the important obstacles of the holistic approach, on the students. The study was planned as a pretest posttest quasi-trial model in the fall semester of the 2022-2023 academic year for nursing students. The students who took the course formed the control group, and those who did not take the case. Data were collected twice at the beginning and end of the semester. Data were collected in face-to-face classes with a questionnaire. The Ethnocentrism Scale was used to diagnose ethnocentrism. Permission was obtained from the ethics committee, institution and students.
