Nurses today faces many challenges everyday educating and caring for patient in more diverse culture, belief, intellectual level, and language barrier (ANA Periodicals 2009). Each nurse has own uniqueness and style of teaching. When nurses educating a more diverse patient population with different cultures, belief, language barrier, and intellectual level, it is important to use different style of teaching and methodologies (ANA Periodicals 2009). The Vark analysis questionnaire and teaching approach has provided different information on how to properly educate people base on their learning capabilities and style. This information is useful when educating a culturally diverse patient’s. For example, in Asian culture, the use of herbal medicine, acupuncture, acupressure, and religious belief is part of medicinal treatment of illness or disease such as sciatica and back problem or simple acid reflux. Sciatica and back pain, acupuncture and acupressure are using to relieve pain and discomfort. Alkaline fruits and vegetables and herbs use to treat minor or simple acid reflux. In religious belief, prayer and wearing symbols of saints or cross become part of belief in healing illnesses or disease. It is important for the nurses not to be judgmental and avoid stereotyping, instead, be open minded and let the patient’s belief and culture be part of healing process. If nurses come across with difficulties, professional nurses can find a way of approaching or tackling the issue by using appropriate methodologies base on their(patient) belief and culture ( ANA Periodicals 2009). By doing this approach may result in positive outcome.

Finally, nurses must put aside their own belief and culture too when educating, and always remember that each patient is unique and has different style and absorbing information.
