Intercultural Communicative Competence: A Professional Development Model for College Nursing Faculty

Abstract: 
The project Intercultural Communicative Competence: A Professional Development Model for College Nursing Faculty combined experience garnered within the Centre for Excellence in Immigrant and Intercultural Advancement (CEIIA) at Bow Valley College (BVC) in both delivering professional development and in intercultural communicative competence (ICC) scenario development to produce a professional development model for faculty instruction enhancement.
 
This project investigated professional development models currently employed in faculty development and explored the particular needs of nursing faculty grappling with an increasingly diverse population of learners. The focus was on developing intercultural communicative competence and teaching and learning strategies for nursing faculty to aid learners in accessing content in nursing programs. This indirectly benefitted English language learners (ELL) in nursing programs (both Internationally Educated Nurses (IEN) and other ELL) by providing faculty with knowledge, skills and awareness to support ELL in nursing programs through more interculturally competent instructional methodology and delivery.
