Transcultural nurses, in general, are nurses who act as specialists, generalists, and consultants in order to study the interrelationships of culturally constituted care from a nursing point of view.
They are nurses who provide knowledgeable, competent, and safe care to people of diverse cultures to themselves and others.
Through Leininger, transcultural nursing started as a theory of diversity and universality of cultural care.
Transcultural nursing was established from 1955 to 1975.
In 1975, Leininger refined the specialty through the use of the "sunrise model" concept. Its international establishment as a field in nursing continued from 1983 to the present.
