LGBT nurses experience homophobia in the form of physical violence, verbal abuse, social ostracization and institutionalized descrimination. This homophobia not only negatively affects LGBT nurses, but also patients and heterosexual nurses. Propose solutions include providing better support for LGBT nurses, encouraging LGBT nurses to be out at their workplaces, and implementing institutional changes to combat homophobic work environments.
