The purpose of this article is to describe a study abroad course designed to help nursing students develop their cultural competency through pedagogically sound content and experiential learning activities in an unfamiliar setting and with patients and their families who have unfamiliar care requirements. Students were taken to Guyana for 7 days to participate in a cultural immersion experience modeled on the Camphina-Bacote model of gaining cultural competence for health care providers. By incorporating the study abroad program into the curriculum, both nursing students and FSC were able to engage in building ongoing and evolving awareness of cultural competency in nursing and the best practices used to meet the needs of patients and their families.
