In 2014, the Nursing Section became the first section established by GLMA, honoring the legacy and critical role of nurses in healthcare. The GLMA Nursing Section is a professional home for GLMA members who are LGBTQ+ and allied nurses, nursing students, and nurse practitioners dedicated to improving health care and the health of all LGBTQ+ individuals and families. 

The GLMA Nursing Section focuses on making healthcare more LGBTQ+ affirming through practice, education and research, policy, and organizational climate committees. Any GLMA member who supports the goals of the section and is committed to interdisciplinary connections among all health professionals is welcome to join. 

The 11th Annual Nursing Summit will be held virtually on Saturday, September 30, 2023. Stay tuned for more information!
