Reports regarding the proposed changes in the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) indicate there will be expanded and more clearly defined mental health assessment information regarding culture and diversity. This change is in response to the concerns of educators, practitioners, and researchers regarding how culture was prioritized, defined, and assessed within the fourth edition, text revision (DSM-IV-TR) of the manual. The purposes of this article are to discuss (a) how culture was assessed in the DSM-IV-TR; (b) what new assessment cultural factors are proposed for inclusion in the DSM-5; and (c) implications for psychiatric-mental health nursing education, practice, and research based on the inclusion of the proposed cultural assessment changes.
