    Mini-Symposium Outline: Nurses contribute a unique perspective to all facets of health and health care. We work in a variety of settings and our roles in the field of transgender health range from direct patient care and case management to establishing practice standards, developing quality assurance procedures, and directing complex nursing care systems, in addition to advancing scientific knowledge to improve practice, health care and policy. Thus, nurses have a significant impact on the quality of care that transgender and gender nonconforming patients/clients receive. This interactive panel discussion, the first of its kind, aims to increase the breadth and depth of knowledge concerning the various types of nursing professionals involved in transgender health care, research, and clinical education. Our diverse nursing panel will showcase the innovative and unique contributions the nursing discipline is making to improve the health of transgender and gender nonconforming people, share their personal insights and experiences, and answer questions from attendees. Advanced practice nurses will speak on their professional experiences providing hormone therapy, postoperative and follow-up care, and primary and preventative care. Nurse educators will discuss the provision of knowledge and skills to both the current and future nursing workforce to prepare them to meet the health care needs of this unique patient population. Finally, our nurse scientists and scholars will highlight their experiences designing and implementing interdisciplinary research studies and disseminating new scientific knowledge necessary to improve the health and well-being of transgender and gender nonconforming people. This symposium will be an opportunity for members from all disciplines to learn about the ways to collaborate with nurse leaders in advancing transgender health and strengthen the community of professionals advocating for health equity for all transgender and gender nonconforming people.
