Abstract: The purpose of this manuscript is to describe an educational innovation promoting attention to culture in the context of service learning. The innovation is one component in a community-based baccalaureate nursing curriculum at an urban university in the Mid-Atlantic States. The innovation comprises blending specific aspects of two required freshmen level courses, Transcultural Responses in Health Care and Service Learning Strategies. The overall goal of this endeavor is to better prepare students to integrate concepts of cultural competence throughout their undergraduate education and ultimately into their own practice of nursing.

Keywords: Transcultural nursing, education, service learning, educational strategies
