The purpose of this manuscript is to provide an example of nurses' involvement in observation, assessment, and intervention of an EJ community using a community-based participatory research (CBPR) model...

BACKGROUND: Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT+) populations account for 4% of the US population, yet health disparities persist, which are considered a priority in health care systems. In nursing education programs, the allotment in time to cover LGBT+ health content is not mandated thus ranges from zero to several hours total in nursing curricula. Therefore, nursing students' education regarding LGBT+ health issues remains minimal and inconsistent throughout the nation's nursing programs...

Programs with several paths to the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) face significant difficulties in preparing clinical scholars who can transform healthcare. While Post-Baccalaureate to DNP (BSN-DNP) programs are fulfilling the Institute of Medicine's mandate for seamless academic progression, several factors need to be considered for students' successful program completion. These factors include: (1) the students' stage of cognitive development for strategic thinking (metacognition); (2) students' tendency to underestimate the rigors of doctoral educational requirements; and (3) faculty challenges in helping students to acquire skills needed to complete the DNP project...

These nurses also have the requisite training to respond to more acute medical events, including the symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. They provide care and comfort to those suffering from the distress, anxiety, and fear caused by disasters...
