LGBTQIA+ Sensitive Nursing Care for Youth

LGBTQIA+ Sensitive Nursing Care for Youth

Pediatric nursing professionals are key to facilitating improvements for the health and well-being of LGBTQIA+ children and adolescents. Use IPN resources to support this community. 

In schools, at the hospital bedside, and other settings, pediatric nurses have opportunities to identify concerns, start conversations, and connect children and teens with support. Pediatric nurse practitioners can play a much-needed role in offering a safe environment to discuss issues during annual check-ups or other interactions. Faculty and clinical educators impact LGBTQIA+ cultural competence during nursing students' classroom and clinical experiences.
