With generous funding from the Hearst Foundations
, the NLN is creating the next ACE series, Advancing Care Excellence for the LGBTQ+ People (ACE+). ACE+ will build on the NLN ACE.S Framework, which was initially developed to address quality nursing care for older adults. The ACE+ project will develop and disseminate evidence-based teaching resources about care of LGBTQ+ people to nursing programs across the US and beyond. The overarching goal of this project is to equip nurse educators with the necessary tools to teach care of LGBTQ+ people and help them graduate a new nursing workforce that is both knowledgeable and culturally competent to meet the needs of LGBTQ+ individuals and decrease the health disparities they experience.
