LGBTQ+ In Healthcare Panel Discussion | Is It Ok to Be "Out" in Healthcare?, Mental Health & More

In today’s video I have the honor of hosting a discussion where we can learn from LGBTQ+ healthcare workers as they share their experiences. I’ll share some ways that i’ve found to easily incorporate inclusivity in my own practice when it comes to gender, identity, and attraction, and we will discuss the importance of making healthcare spaces inclusive for all individuals of the community. Pride month is an important time to bring attention to the awesome LGBTQ+ members of our healthcare community, but this is a conversation that I hope to continue far into the future as well. LGBT healthcare is something that is not taught well in nursing or NP school, and I’d love to see a larger focus on lgbtq healthcare in our curriculums going forward.

I started this channel because I wanted other working moms, nurses, nurse practitioner students, nursing students, and whoever else to know that you CAN do school, life and work! I’d love to hear your stories of how you combine your personal interests with your family life! You are doing great things, and I hope you remember that!

As Covid Vaccine mandates become more popular, I have a few thoughts as to what is ethically the right move here. Covid vaccination decreases spread of illness, and will decrease likelihood of transmission to patients. However the vaccine mandate may cause more nurses to leave already short staffed units, making working conditions more unsafe. And costing more lives in the end.

    I am a 40 year old lesbian and have zero ideas about the proper way to say it 🤦 My entire life it was just, gay/lesbian. Hard habit to break.

    I went to nursing school in Atlanta. One of the students referred to the patient as “those people “. She nipped that in the bud. She told us to give care not judgement. I’m a black nurse and I’ve been refused by a patient because of my color. I’m a critical care nurse and I’m not upset because a patients/patients family doesn’t want me to wipe their behinds.
    In addition, let’s not forget about the stigma of mental illness. I’ve lost count of the number of healthcare providers that make jokes about mental illness. I was deeply insulted because I’m bipolar. But I don’t disclose it.

    I’m a black cisgender female nurse. I’m totally confused. I don’t know what to call people. I used to go by the way a person looks. But That’s not ok. So I call people by their names. Is this ok? Do I need to go further? I work in critical care, so the majority of my patients are on vents. I’m not always comfortable asking the visitor these questions.

    The conversation about "exposing kids to sexuality" – this frustrates me to no end when people argue against representation. Seeing gay people doesn't make other people gay and me saying I use she/they pronouns is actually not revealing a damn thing about my sexuality because gender and sexual orientation are completely different things.
