The purpose of this study was to determine whether a nurse practitioner–guided prostate cancer education program was beneficial in decreasing gaps in knowledge and self-efficacy among African American men in a small, rural community in the middle of the state of Georgia.


  • African American men have higher prostate cancer diagnosis rates than men in other ethnic or racial groups.
  • The prostate cancer prevention education program increased participants’ knowledge and self-efficacy levels.
  • It is important to establish relationships and conversations between medical providers and African American male patients.
