The purpose of this study was to examine variables associated with cultural competence among hospice nurses. In a cross-sectional descriptive design, a convenience sample of 107 hospice nurses from five different hospice agencies completed a survey that included the Cultural Competence Assessment instrument. Regression analysis revealed a significant association between higher education and cultural awareness and sensitivity, as well as an association between diversity training and self-reported cultural competence behaviors. Findings support the need for additional education and training for hospice nurses and provision of more resources targeted toward enhancing cultural competency.
