NAHN is actively involved in issues affecting Hispanic nurses and the health of the Hispanic communities on local, state, regional and national levels. Through mentorship and networking, NAHN promotes communication and collective action by Hispanics in nursing to strengthen their development in a caring and healing profession. NAHN is committed to work toward providing equal access to education and professional and economic opportunities for Hispanic nurses and to improving the health and nursing care for Hispanic consumers.

Founded in 1975 by Ildaura Murillo Rohde, PhD, RN, FAAN, The NAHN evolved from the Ad Hoc Committee of the Spanish-Speaking Surnamed Nurses’ Caucus, formed in 1974 during the American Nurses Association convention in San Francisco. The organization became the National Association of Spanish-Speaking/Spanish Surnamed Nurses in 1976.

We are thrilled to be recognized by the NAHN, Los Angeles Chapter, and look forward to a continuing partnership on this critical work.
