National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN)
The National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN) is currently the only nursing organization that focuses on Latino nurses. With close to 2000 members and over 44 chapters across the country, NAHN is also committed to representing the number of licensed Hispanic nurses in the United States and to promote the recruitment and retention of Hispanic students in nursing education programs to increase the number of bilingual and bicultural nurses to provide culturally sensitive nursing care to Hispanic consumers and communities.
The national conference helps bring together nursing students, nurse professionals, community leaders, and health industry experts to advance the educational, professional and leadership skills of Hispanic nurses and increase the number of Hispanic researchers, administrators and educators. NAHN aims to serve as a model of excellence by providing opportunities for members and Latino nurses across the country, and promote quality health care to Latino communities. NAHN welcomes not only Latino nurses and health care professionals, but also those from any ethnic background who are leaders in improving health care for the Latino community.
