A survey was administered to pre-nursing students at a HBCU to explore risky sexual behaviors, knowledge and practice of safe sex by condom negosiation and usage (or lack of it) among this cohort. Findings indicate that out of the this group (n=69), nine of the are still virgins (mean age of 18.5). Among the other respondents, nine respondents have been afflicted and been treated for STDs, and a few had used alcohol while engage in sexual intercourse. A sizable number of the respondents (n=23) state that it does not matter whether their partners use condom or not while engaged in sex. In conclusion, as this cohort progree through the baccalaureate program, it is imperative to impact upon them the concepts of HIV/AIDS/STIs prevention education as ameasure of risk reduction.
