2. What does Kluckhohn mean by the phrase “culturally standardized unreason?” Can you think of any examples of this sort of unreason from your own culture? Kluckhohn means that humans that are conditioned to be repulsed by an act that is immoral or contrary to their own culture, but may be perfectly normal in another with the former not accepting an opposing view from the latter’s culture. An example of this is that my family members are repulsed by the thought of kissing another relative on the lips, while other families find this act completely normal and acceptable.
In ‘Institutional Ethnography…’ by Janet M. Rankin and Marie Campbell, an analysis is completed on the institutional ethnography of nurses’ work in Canadian hospitals. Health care policymakers and administrators are currently implementing an updated system that will promote the efficient use of resources and delivery of care.

In this article “Taking The Common Ground Beyond Cultural Identity” written by Kenneth A. Bruffee is an American Writing Center administrator and a professor emeritus in the department of English at Brooklyn College. He talks about the present patterns in multicultural liberal instruction. He expresses that the first undertaking of multicultural training, recognizing contrasts and making social "groupings," has missed the mark as the contrasts in the middle of "them" and "us" turn out to be more evident in advanced education. He proposes that understudies should now "figure out how to perceive and attest our honest to goodness shared characteristic”. Bruffee proposes that understudies ought to rather take in more about their own characters

1. Summary of Issue My cultural background causes me to be curious about cultural competence, and as a future social worker, I think it is important that I am able to understand what it means. With the never-ending string of racially charged violence, protests against the governement, and all other actions carried out my disadvantaged groups, it has caused me to look at myself and the concept of white privlage that I have. I have always known I was not well-rehearsed in the understanding of other cultures, but it was not until things really started to blow up in the public eye that I realized how much different the experiences others have are from my own, and how little I actually picked up on those differences even though I thought I was
Germany had a very large and well organized nursing service, with three main organizations, one for Catholics, one for Protestants, and the DRK (Red Cross). In 1934 the Nazis set up their own nursing unit, the Brown Nurses, absorbing one of the smaller groups, bringing it up to 40,000 members. It set up kindergartens, hoping to seize control of the minds of the younger Germans, in competition with the other nursing organizations. Civilian psychiatric nurses who were Nazi party members participated in the killings of invalids, although the process was shrouded in euphemisms and denials. Military nursing was primarily handled by the DRK, which came under partial Nazi control.
The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health The nursing profession is considered as the largest sector of the health care workforce in the United States given its membership of more than 3 million individuals. Since the establishment of the Medicare and Medicaid programs during the 1960s, the most sweeping health care legislation has been the 2010 Affordable Care Act (Redman, Pressler, Furspan & Potempa, 2015). Nurses can therefore play an important role in advancing patient care to the dynamic health care setting and some of them are evaluated in the 2010 report by the Institute of Medicine, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health (Masters, 2015). The report offers recommendations on key areas of nursing such as
The nursing image is one of the most challenging issues confronting nurses, ranging from the sexual stereotypes to the angel of mercy. The general impression of the public describes nurses as doctor’s handmaidens, feminine profession, and naughty nurse. All those perceptions were mentioned in social media and T.V shows and those methods were the key role in portraying the misconception of nursing (Weaver, Salamonson, Koch, & Jackson, 2013) . It is well-known that the public image sometimes is based on inaccurate overall understanding and does not match the nurses’ professional image.
