The authors, a dean and faculty member at a Midwestern university, reported on their technique using role play to teach/enhance the cultural competence of nursing students. They described detailed strategies for implementing role-play successfully with nursing students and provided documentation from the literature to support their methods/strategies. A sample role-play scenario is provided for the readers. The authors concluded that role-play is a valuable teaching strategy for nursing students when used with adequate pre-planning to achieve learning objectives. The article is descriptive and anecdotal. A more structured study, perhaps a student survey, would have been valuable addition to this article.
