HP 2020 proposes that increasing training for health care providers in the provision of culturally competent care will improve health outcomes for this vulnerable population. Nurses are usually the first point of care for individuals seeking care. Therefore, that initial patient-provider encounter can influence decisions regarding future health care. In order to enhance nursing competencies in culturally competent care, a simulation experience using a narrative script and a high-fidelity manikin was incorporated into a undergraduate nursing course. The simulation scenario was designed to facilitate the delivery of healthcare to LGBTQ identifying individuals. A pre-simulation and post-simulation survey was administered in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the simulation intervention. Results will then be used to inform continual educational interventions for the promotion of nursing knowledge and the delivery of culturally-sensitive LGBTQ healthcare.
