The term culture refers to a way of people’s life. This lifestyle affects their health positively or negatively depending. In the case of illnesses such as chronic kidney diseases and diabetes, they require large amounts of money, and most of them do not have health insurance. In some cases, economic and psychosocial challenges contribute to death since the sick can detect these diseases later. This paper describes a strategic plan defining how nurses’ nursing practice intervention will be implemented to reduce the risks of diabetes and kidney diseases among African American and Latino populations.

Nurses are the primary health caregivers in the health organization. The staff and system domains must be considered in the implementation process (Debono et al., 2017). Behavioral nursing intervention refers to advice given to patients to help them change their lifestyle, which might cause illnesses (Groves and Bunch, 2018). For instance, making patients aware that smoking can cause high chances of diabetes and chronic kidney disease. Additionally, nurses can extend this education to community levels to create more awareness. Health system nursing interventions are mainly concerned with the patient’s physical health (Tölli et al., 2017). The nurse can implement them, for instance, by recommending regular and healthy exercises to be done to reduce the risks of the illness.

Hospitals in Latino and Latin America should adapt the electronic teaching portals from where the people can learn more about diabetes and chronic diseases. Significantly, nurses will be given special training to know more about kidney diseases. Portals for patients will be created to facilitate online communication with nurses. However, potential barriers are likely to be encountered, such as a lack of cooperation from nurses (Sedrak et al., 2020). The community may also rebel against such interventions but creating bridges between them, and the hospital can win their trust.
