An important finding from this study was culture care repatterning/restructuring may be used with nursing faculty to establish the culture care theory as an organising framework for teaching culture care in the classroom, on-line and clinical contexts.

From the educational literature, Marchesani and Adams (1992) tackled the increasing diversity in the student population in higher education in America and proposed a four-part model for teaching and learning in a multicultural context. Dimensions were directly related to facilitating a teaching/learning environment which values diversity and fosters exploration and achievement of cultural competence. Components of the model speak to knowing oneself, knowing one’s students, developing coursework where diverse perspectives are presented and teaching with a variety of strategies to promote success in students from varied backgrounds.
