Discussion 9: Creating Culturally Competent Health Care Organizations
Jorge is a 12-year-old whose parents came to the United States from
Honduras 2 years ago. As a school nurse, you notice that he has not had his
pertussis and varicella vaccines. It is unclear whether the family is in the
United States legally. Write two paragraphs answering the following:
1. How can nurses provide access to vaccines to immigrants with a variety of citizenship?
2. What is the primary barrier a nurse may face while working with Jorge’s family or similar families?
A minimum of 2 evidence-based references (besides the class
textbook) no older than 5 years is required. You must post 2 replies to
any of your peer’s postings.
