Hidden No More: Addressing the Health and Wellness of LGBTQIA+ Individuals in Nursing School Curricula

Day, J., Snyder, M., & Flores, D. D. (2023). Journal of Nursing Education, 62(5), 307-311. 10.3928/01484834-20230306-01
Background: Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, intersex, asexual (LGBTQIA+) individuals face barriers to equitable health care access. During clinical encounters, LGBTQIA+ individuals interact with nurses and health care providers who often lack a thorough understanding of LGBTQIA+ cultures, terminology, and strategies for culturally affirming care. This article details the process undertaken to include LGBTQIA+ health elective courses. Method: To outline LGBTQIA+ health education, a curriculum crosswalk was conducted. Course descriptions, objectives, and outcomes were crafted with faculty input. Priority LGBTQIA+ areas were analyzed, and textbook content was cross-referenced to identify topics for inclusion. Results: In Spring 2022, two LGBTQIA+ courses were launched. Undergraduate students at New York University Meyers (n = 27) and undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Pennsylvania (n = 18) comprised the inaugural classes. Conclusion: LGBTQIA+ individuals experience poorer health outcomes due to longstanding health inequities. These disparities are partly fueled by the minimal exposure nursing students receive in their undergraduate education. Guidelines on the development of courses designed to highlight needs may address disparities, leading to better health outcomes.
