Possessing personal aspirations of charitable and global nursing care, I believe the integration of cultural care, and its body of knowledge, into nursing care to be extremely important. It will help the nurse to understand how to individualize patient care plans relative to the patient's culture. I hope to acquire the understanding regarding common or uncommon health problems and treatments relative to race, nationality, culture, religion and lifestyle. While these factors are extending characteristics of transcultural care, I do not intend to go into detail pertaining to specific cultures and their connec... ... middle of paper ... ...al., 2013, p. 80).

This shared theory development was done in efforts to improve nursing competence in palliative nursing care. Development of the shared theory is discussed in this article stating the comparison of the social cognitive theory and the conceptual model. Stating the need for more education and training needed for nurses to become more proficient and competent in caring for palliative patients worldwide due to the aging population and a greater number of those with chronic illness as well as the World Health Organization calling for a recommendation of palliative care to be a core requirement in nursing education, training and continuing education, Bandura’s theory and Orem’s model were selected as a shared theory with aims to meet the criteria on both the patient and nursing levels. This article goes on to state that even though on the theoretical level, both the cognitive theory and the conceptual model fit the palliative care needs of self-competence and the influence of nursing interventions, empirical testing and further research to evaluate the effectiveness of this shared theory in the clinical as well as the classroom and training sessions needs to be conducted to prove that this theory will be a solid foundation for palliative care that enhances the comp... ... middle of paper ... ...red theory to show the relationship of theory to the practice of palliative care in the clinical setting, it is uncertain if this shared theory will improve palliative care practices and nursing competence in caring for the palliative and chronically ill patient.
Nurses use theory to assist in providing education and care to their patients. Utilization of nursing theories enhances the nurse’s ability to use concepts that have been researched and proven in the application of nursing care. Behavior is an important keyword when discussing health promotion theories because lifestyle modification requires a change in beliefs and attitude. Many health promotion theories explain how behavior can enhance or deter a patients progress in health related activities. Nola Pender, a nursing theorist and educator, has developed the Health Promotion Model (HPM).

The quality of health care cannot be compromised to patients. Nurses must continue to play major roles in future health care initiative (Cherry & Jacob, 2008). A defining feature of professional nursing practice is the focus on health promotion and risk reduction. Advances in science and technology will continue to emerge, which will help to predict future health problems (The Essentials of, 2008). Nursing is a profession because it requires an extended education of its members as well as a basic liberal foundation (Potter, & Perry, 2009).
Definition The understanding of global awareness in the nursing profession prepares nurses to address global issues affecting the quality of health in patients (World Health Organization, 2007). In correlation, cultural awareness in the nursing profession is crucial to understanding a patient’s beliefs, values, thoughts, and behaviors to provide high-quality, effective care. Regardless of geographic location, both global and cultural awareness heightens the education of nurses to deliver culturally competent care to diverse populations (Douglas et al, 2011). Culturally competent care focuses on the patient as a whole and allows the patient to remain as a unique individual (Campinha-Bacote, 2011). The twelve, Standards of Practice for Culturally
