NSNA (National Student Nurses Association) passes two LGBTQ-related resolutions

Each year representatives among the 60,000 nursing students who belong to the NSNA gather for a convention, and consider a host of resolutions for action pertaining to a wide range of issues.  The 2016 conference was from March 30 – April 2 in Orlando, Florida.  It is inspiring and informative to read through the many resolutions that were discussed and passed by the House of Delegates, but of particular note are two resolutions that have a direct bearing on LGBTQ health!  You can see all of the resolutions, and refer to the full text of all of the 2016 resolutions on the NSNA website.

We are making the two LGBTQ-related resolutions available for download here, so that our readers can easily retrieve them and distribute to your colleagues and other organizations, seeking support for the actions that are called forth!
