Kori Lapham, DNP, FNP
Kori Sutton Lapham, DNP, FNP-C received her DNP from Georgetown University in 2019. She received her MS in nursing from Shenandoah University and her BSN from the University of Massachusetts, Boston. She holds roles as both a Family Practice Nurse Practitioner within Inova Health System and is ancillary adjunct faculty at both George Mason University and Shenandoah University, in their schools of nursing. She is excited to share her work on Cultural Competence in university student health centers.
The purpose of this presentation is to: (1) articulate the association between healthcare disparities of diverse university students and lack of cultural competence (CC) of university student health center licensed personnel who care for them; (2) discuss the positive impact of a CC workshop on CC levels of university student health center personnel; and (3) share resources and tools to guide DNP-prepared nurses in the conduction of cultural assessments, offering the potential to improve the quality of care of diverse patient experiences in dynamic healthcare systems.
