To meet the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and the need for a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-competent primary care workforce, education and training of nurse practitioners are critical. The University of California, San Francisco School of Nursing developed and implemented an HIV primary care curriculum and evaluated this curriculum for a graduating cohort of 55 students. Results show gains in students’ HIV knowledge and confidence in providing basic HIV care and improvements in attitudes toward people living with HIV. We have been able to show that HIV content can be successfully integrated into a nurse practitioner generalist curriculum.
