The purpose of Cooney’s article is stated as “…to consider the similarities and differences between transcultural nursing and cultural safety…” (p.6). Cooney thoughtfully acknowledges my leadership as founder of transcultural nursing and that of Irihapeti Ramsden with the concept of cultural safety. In this critique only a few major points will be made due to space and time limitations.
