Notes on Nursing—June 2022 Issue

Nurses are natural patient advocates, and in celebration of #PrideMonth, we’re highlighting nurse innovators reimagining care delivery and outcomes for #LGBTQIA+ patients. The June issue of Notes on Nursing features a social entrepreneurship lab at UPenn’s School of Nursing bringing evidence-based solutions for LGBTQIA+ health to market, as well as a groundbreaking clinic in Massachusetts delivering respectful, gender-affirming care and powerful healing experiences. Check out the issue.
