Pride in Care North Carolina


Pride in Care North Carolina is a free cultural competency training initiative for North Carolina skilled nursing facilities for working with LGBT residents supported by a Civil Money Penalty Grant.

Pride in Care North Carolina:

  • Is partnering with the North Carolina Association of Area Agencies on Aging and the North Carolina Ombudsmen to offer 16 in-person 3 hour “Train the Trainer” trainings for Skilled Nursing Facility staff throughout North Carolina over 3 years starting in 2020.
  • Offers Continuing Education Credits for Nursing Home Administrators, Nurses, Social Workers and Activity Directors.
  • Is a “Train the Trainer” model. Attendees will receive a training manual and a flash drive of LGBT cultural competency curriculum and training materials. The training materials are designed to serve as 20 to 30 minute in-services that can be conducted by the trained staff member to train additional facility staff. (1 set of training materials per facility)
  • Recognizes it is challenging for staff to attend in-person trainings. In addition to the in-person trainings, Pride in Care North Carolina will provide FREE online cultural competency SAGE training vouchers for Skilled Nursing Facilities in order to make the training as accessible as possible.

Pride in Care North Carolina curriculum content:

  • LGBT Affirmative Language
  • LGBT History & Experiences
