Trans and Nonbinary Nurses’ Workplace Experiences

Nurse researchers Jordan Bosse and Raeann LeBlanc are organizing a really exciting digital storytelling project centering the experiences of transgender and gender nonconforming nurses. Learn more about their work in the except below and get more information by visiting the project website (link here).

Why are you doing this project? 

Transgender and nonbinary nurses are practically invisible in most nursing literature. We want to learn more about what it means for you to be a nurse and what your workplace experiences have been like in relation to your gender identity and/or expression.  

What will I be asked to do?

You will be asked to take part in a workshop with small group (5-7) other transgender and nonbinary nurses. In the workshop you’ll write and develop a digital story.

The workshop will last about 15-18 hours and spread over a series of days in a way that works for the participants. For example, we could meet a few hours a week for a number of weeks, a few half-days on a couple of weekends, or some combination of the two. At the end of the workshop, we will celebrate the journey by screening your completed stories with other participants.
