Abstract

Communication and the interactions that take place between nurse and patient are the foundation of nursing care. However, in practice, cross-cultural communication is often inadequate and therefore the health care needs of many cultural groups are not being met. An examination of language switching within nurse/patient interaction in a bilingual setting provides a further dimension for the study of cross-cultural communication.
