Guided by the theory and model of competency, extensive research and investigation about the job requirements for nurses from abroad working directly with patients of a different cultural background was performed. Based on the job requirements, in conjunction with guidance from nursing specialists as well as suggestions from teaching committees a competency-oriented transcultural nursing student education program was developed. The program was implemented and has yielded promising learning outcomes. The results of this study should provide a solid foundation for the future cultivation of nursing personnel and lead to improved patient care.
