Culturally competent care contributes to mitigating health disparities and increases the likelihood of diagnosing disease that would most likely affect a given culture“ (Edelman, Kudzman, & Mandel, 2014, p. 26).  This statement alone explains why it is so important for nurses to be culturally competent.  It reminds us that just knowing about your patient’s culture  can help you reduce health disparities as well as play a major role in assisting with uncovering a diagnosis.  A nurse’s main objective is to help her patients and knowing a little bit about their cultural practices can help the patient feel more at ease and will build trust.  Not only can a nurse help to diagnose a patient, she may be able to avoid misdiagnosing a patient.  When we are in tune to specific health practices to a certain culture, such as Cao Gio (Coin Rubbing) used in the Vietnamese culture where a coin is dipped in oil and rubbed on the ill person’s body until red marks appear (Pich, 2006), we will be able to determine what the marks are without assuming the patient has a rash or has been abused in some way.  This is a cultural technique that is believed to help with a variety of symptoms.  We are also able to hone in on education topics that will be most useful to our patients.  When you know what common health problems a certain culture has you can use that to help diagnose them.
