* What is Cultural Humility? “The approach of cultural humility goes beyond the concept of cultural competence to encourage individuals to identify their own biases and to acknowledge that those biases must be recognized. Cultural competency implies that one can function with a thorough knowledge of the morals and beliefs of another culture; cultural humility acknowledges that it is impossible to be adequately knowledgeable about cultures other than one's own. Cultural humility requires us to take responsibility for our interactions with others beyond acknowledging or being sensitive to our differences.” Levi, Amy. “The Ethics of Nursing Student International Clinical Experiences” Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic, and Neonatal Nursing. Vol. 38, No. 1, pp. 94-99 (2009).
