Preparing Danish nurses to work effectively with new colleagues from abroad
Enhancing cultural intelligence and collaboration skills Danish hospitals are hiring an increasing number of foreign nurses. This generates new challenges for Danish nurses. Danish nurses are among the most autonomous and self-managing in the world. Therefore, they need some cultural insight to understand their new colleagues. For example, some nurses come from cultures where the doctor is considered “God”. LIVING INSTITUTE facilitated a number of workshops for Danish nurses about mastering diversity in a busy and demanding job.
