For nurse educators to provide a multiculturally sensitive curriculum for a diverse student population, there needs to be recognition and inclusion of a wide variety of ways of knowing, cultural beliefs, and values. Nurse educators, however, continue to teach from a Western orientation that emphasizes scientific, rational, linear ways of thinking and knowing. Although intuition is a valid and valued way of knowing in nursing practice, it is rarely included in the nursing curricula. This article suggests pedagogical strategies to inculcate intuition as a valued means of knowing in the multicultural curriculum.
