Please visit the Transcultural Nursing Society's website at & you can find a definition. Also, please get the last edition of the Journal of Transcultural Nursing July 2002, Volume 13, Issue 3 & you will find the following nurses who have a theory/model/framework on Transcultural health care & nursing: Leininger, Purnell, Spector, Campinha-Bacote, Giger & Davidhizar, Boyle & Andrews.
