Objectives: This study aimed to identify the influence of each student's place of origin in delivering transcultural nursing. Method: The study used a cross-sectional research design and quota sampling technique. A total of 98 nursing students at the apprenticeship semester from either extension or regular programs were involved in the study. Results: The majority of the students has Javanese cultural background and come from different regions of Indonesia. Students from different regions were capable of applying transcultural nursing skills within the good ability category (72.4%). However, there was no relationship between their place of origin and their ability to apply transcultural nursing (p value = 0.388). Conclusion: There was no relationship between students’ place of origin and the skill of transcultural nursing application. This study recommends further research on the difference of student cultural competency in delivering nursing care based on their place of origin.
