Abstract [en]

Background. Studies admitted that the need for transcultural care is on the rise because of international migration. Nurses and healthcare organizations task is the provision of holistic care to people worldwide. Nursing a patient from a different ethnic and cultural background is shown to be a challenge to nurses.

Aim. To describe nurses’ experiences of transcultural nursing.

Design. A literature study. Ten qualitative articles were retrieved from two separate databases; Cinahl and PubMed. The articles were analyzed using Olsson and Sörensen’s assessment template.

Results. Three categories emerged; Communication, Cultural differences and Healthcare organization. Nursing patients from different cultural backgrounds were challenging to nurses. Language barrier affected nurse-patient communication. Unavailability of professional interpreter sometimes left nurses with the option of using the available source as interpreters. Different perceptions of culture and lifeways were evident, and the healthcare organizations roles towards the provision of holistic care were paramount.

Conclusion. The results indicated that nurses require cultural knowledge and education, instant access to professional interpreters and resources by the healthcare organizations to assist them in the provision of transcultural care.
