Thus, the nursing student population and patient population have both become more diverse. Nursing education programs, therefore, need to know the best teaching strategies and practices that promote a culturally sensitive learning environment and culturally sensitive nurses. However, there is little formal research on the topic. For this study, a three-round Delphi technique was used to elicit the opinions of nursing education experts regarding teaching practices and strategies that promote culturally sensitive teaching of nursing. The findings of this study were based on the perceptions of 12 nursing education experts representing 12 different locales throughout the United States. The primary result of the Delphi study was the identification of 92 best teaching practices that promote cultural sensitivity in nursing education in nursing. The secondary results of the study were related to longevity in nursing education and the type of educational program. Overall, a high degree of consensus was observed among the expert panelists regarding the importance of teaching practices and strategies that promote culturally sensitive nursing and nursing education. This study provided a foundation for discussion and future research on this topic. Recommendations for further research into understanding the nature of cultural sensitivity in nursing education and preparation of culturally sensitive educators and nurses were presented.
