Continuing Education and Customized Training

Why MCTC

“The nurse in the perioperative environment coordinates communication among surgical team members. Even in the high tech arena of the operating room, the nursing role as patient advocate remains constant, and the skill of patient assessment is critical as the nurse implements individualized nursing care using evidence-based practices.”

–Mary Mirick, R.N., M.S.N., C.N.O.R., Continuing Education Nursing Instructor

Why MCTC

“I continue learning from students and they continue to energize me! I feel I am respected and valued, and some of my co-workers are like family. What else could I ask for?”

–Pat Reinhart, R.N., Allied Health Instructor

Cultural Enrichment Series

Our Cultural Enrichment Series was developed to foster an understanding of the Hmong, Somali, and Latino cultures, all burgeoning populations in Minnesota. In this series of three seminars, developed in collaboration with Minnesota immigrants, we will cover the demographics of each group in our state, basic cultural history and background as well as key cultural aspects and values.

The seminars offer a new perspective on cultural assimilation and provide a comparison of those cultures to the U.S. culture. They also address financial philosophies and the marketing and customer service needs of each specific ethnic group. Each seminar closes with a synthesis of financial and cultural concepts that can serve as a plan for better serving or working with each cultural group.

Instructor: Dr. Brigid Bechtold has lived and worked in another culture, managed intercultural training for Honeywell, and worked in the financial services industry. She consults in customer service and culture change initiatives and also teaches English to immigrants.
