  • Each year a number of Haitians enter the United States and may become part of the U.S. health care system. Nurses need to be sensitive to cultural differences and should assess clients for special needs that may arise because of cultural diversity. This article provides strategies for interacting with the Haitian American client in a clinical setting to ensure success in providing nursing care.
