The Advocacy Program is a two-hour program that has impacted over 700 baccalaureate nursing students at the state, regional and national level. The Advocacy Program has been implemented in four schools of nursing including three from Louisiana and one from Massachusetts. The two-hour program is interactive and includes the following activities: “I treat everyone the same,” understanding the need, vocabulary game, understanding the CASS model, creating inclusive spaces for patients, and a question and answer session with a transgendered male. The students were administered the Genderism and Transphobia and Homogenegativity scales before the Advocacy Program and again after. There was a positive increase in attitude toward LGBT+ individuals.
