LGBT Cultural Competency Project 

Take part in a Doctoral project examining Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN)

cultural competence for LGBT clients.

  • Are you an APRN over the age of 18 who is currently practicing clinically in an outpatient setting?
  • Are you interested in education on LGBT health disparities, the effect of provider bias on LGBT health, and learning how to create a more inclusive practice environment?


If you answered “YES” to both of these questions, you may be eligible for participation.


The purpose of this DNP project is to develop and implement provider education on cultural competence for APRNs caring for LGBT clients.  Benefits for participants include the potential for CE credit* and template materials for use in clinical practice. No monetary compensation will be provided.  

Participants can select from an online module with CE credit or may attend a live in-service (no CE credit available).  Both online and in-person options require approximately one (1) hour to complete.  Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the live session will be conducted via Zoom with date/time TBA. 

For more information, please contact Lori Aaron at (469) 358-8846 or


*CE credit of 1.0 hours is available for online module completion only.  Credit is available from the American Association of Family Practitioners and is accepted for use by APRNs.
