The purpose of this presentation is to describe a scripted simulation related to gender transition for graduate students in nursing education. DeDe is a trans-woman who enters a clinic with pain and encounters ridicule and resistance from staff. Students apply ethical principles related to cultural competence (knowledge), communication skills (skills), and cultural humility (attitude) and build a toolbox for healthcare staff to care for the “other” and to provide person-centered care.

Participants will be able to discuss scripted virtual simulations related to cultural diversity.
Participants will be able to discuss debriefing to elicit virtual discussions related to culture.
