Communication is very important in nursing practice because a good communication is needed between a patient and nurse for a good outcome. Communication is a vital role in career of nursing. By communication process the information are exchanged with the people. Nursing is the profession where the communication is more important because they are needed to communicate with the patient, the family of patient, the co-workers of nurses, supervisors, and many others. A socio cultural difference is one of the factors that influence communication. There are many socio cultural factors which are bigger scale services within societies and cultures that affect the feelings and thought (Cna-aiic.ca, 2015). Those factors are culture change, cross culture differences, attitudes, cultural deprivation, race, family structure, cultural identity, reputation, power, discrimination etc. Socio cultural factors are the factors which are incorporating social and cultural factors. Socio cultural factors are values, customs and lifestyle that indicate a group. Communication in this profession is not an easy task because single incorrect information may lead to a huge problem. So the potential and the skill of communication are very important for nursing career. Nurse patient interaction plays an important role in the health care service. The main factor that may influence in the career of the nurse is the skill and potential of communication with the patients. There are three major components for the successful communications. Those are receiver, sender and a message. The capacity for passing the message in a short period of time is very essential for a nurse (Ajol.info, 2015). The promises are given to the patient and their family by the nurses should follow. The proper conversation is needed during the delivery of a report to the family of patient and any kind of unnecessary conversation is strongly illegal. The nurse should understand what cultural groups do to keep wellness, how curers care and cure for members of cultural groups, how cultural groups recognized life processes, how cultural groups define illness and health, what cultural groups believe to be the sources of illness and how the cultural background of the nurse impacts the way in which care is provided ('Socio-cultural Impacts on Communication Slips', 2015). The nurse should consider particular cultural factors influencing on separate clients and identify that intra cultural difference means that each client should be determined for individual cultural differences (Nursingworld.org, 2015). The nurse should understand the culture of other so that they can communicate in a proper way. Different type of patients has different type of language, culture, rules and norms. The nurse should be able to communicate with different type of patients. The patients and family of patient should not be ignored. For this reason the timing and the process of communication is very crucial between the nurse and the patient. There are few factors which are influencing the faith of the family of the patient. Those are the eye contact of the nurse, body language of the nurse and tone of voice of the nurse. The family of patient does not remember the name of the nurse but they remember the activity of the nurse during the crucial time of the patient. So nurse should be able to handle the difficult situations of the patient with a quality – communication with the family of the patients.
