Since our inception in 2021, Nevada Cultural Competency has worked to create and provide comprehensive training to medical practitioners, public health professionals, and CBOs in a variety of training formats to foster cultural humility and inclusivity and strengthen equitable and accessible quality care delivery for patients in Nevada. Regardless of the training format, our courses are interactive, comprehensive, and taught by knowledgeable professionals working in the realm of cultural humility.

Our Training Options!

Self-Paced Nevada Cultural Competency Training

Self-Paced Nevada Cultural Competency Training is an asynchronous, self-driven alternative to our training. As soon as you register, you will have access to the training for 30 days and can complete the training from any device at any time. Complete the training on your schedule!



Our Train-the-Trainer program offers a timely and cost-effective alternative to our open enrollment option. Health facilities can license our copyrighted materials annually and receive direct training from our staff so that required cultural competency training can be completed and maintained within their own organization. We recommend this option for facilities with 60 or more employees.
