Cultural Competence in Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing. A Conceptual Model.  This article in the Nursing Clinics of North America presents a conceptual model for enhancing cultural competence in psychiatric nursing.

The Culturally Competent Model of Care encourages psychiatric nurses to see themselves as always in the process of becoming culturally competent, rather than being culturally competent (Campinha-Bacote, 1994)
