Cultural Competency Training Submission Instructions

A licensed Nevada health facility can choose to use an approved third-party cultural competency training or develop and submit for approval its own cultural competency training to be provided annually, and at time of hire, for all staff. The intention of the training is to:


  • More effectively treat patients or care for residents, as applicable; and
  • Better understand patients or residents who have different cultural backgrounds, including, without limitation, patients or residents who fall within one or more of the categories in paragraphs (a) to (f), inclusive, of subsection 1 of NRS 449.103.
