Gender and Sexuality Health Justice Concentration
The Gender and Sexuality Health Justice concentration is designed to educate current MSN students in their final specialty year 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 be certified as buprenorphine-naloxone (suboxone) prescribers upon NP/CNM certification.
All students in this concentration are required to enroll in Gender and Sexuality Health Justice I, II, and III (NURS 6180, NURS 6190, and NURS 6200), and a clinical conference course (NURS 6202). Students may elect to enroll in the didactic courses only without applying to the concentration.
