The Nevada Cultural Competency Training is approved for annual cultural competency training certification and recertification for healthcare facilities detailed therein and is focused on improvement of cultural awareness, inclusivity, and quality care delivery statewide.

The course is taught over 9 hours by experienced, passionate, NVPCA and High Sierra AHEC staff that have met DHHS requirements. The training is designed to not only meet the regulation requirements but leave a lasting impression on providers; strengthening equitable and accessible care delivery for years to come.
