Gender and Sexuality Health Justice Concentration
The Gender and Sexuality Health Justice concentration is designed to educate MSN students about the health disparities of LGBTQIA+ patients through a racial and economic justice lens. Students are taught about trans hormonal care, incarceration, substance use, and mental health issues in LGBTQIA+ communities. Upon completion of the concentration, students may be eligible to take the AAHIVM-specialist examination and certified as buprenorphine-nalaxone (suboxone) prescribers upon completion of NP/CNM certification.
Students enrolled in the concentration are required to take Gender and Sexuality Health Justice I, II, and III (NURS 618, NURS 619, and NURS 620), in addition to the approved clinical conference course, NURS 622a/b. Students may elect to enroll in the didactic courses only without applying to the concentration. The concentration is open to all students entering their second specialty years. Applications are available in the spring term of the first specialty year, and students are selected by the end of the spring term.
