Method: The research was conducted using comparative descriptive design. Research respondents consisted of nursing faculty students of Universitas Indonesia with a total sample of 266 students. Result: The results showed that there were no differences in attitudes toward HIV clients (p-value = 0.298). Additionally, there were differences in attitudes toward gay (p-value = 0.001). Conclusion: The results of this study suggest the need for an evaluation of educational curricula and teaching methods to improve effectiveness in learning. In addition, there needs to be a greater psychosocial discussion about reducing negative attitudes among nursing students toward clients who are gay and/or who have HIV/AIDS.
