National Network of Hispanic Mentors in Nursing Unveiled
NAHN Launches the Second Year of Campaign

Washington, DC (March 10, 2016) — NAHN is proud to announce the second phase of a national bilingual campaign to increase diversity in nursing.

This year's campaign includes the launch of public service style radio messages featuring true stories and personal experiences of 21 real-life nursing students. These students seek to inspire students to seriously consider the possibility of pursuing a nursing career.

"I want to thank the 21 NAHN role models for volunteering and sharing their personal stories related to their challenges and solutions while in nursing school," said Angie Millan, DNP, RN, FAAN, Project Director of the grant. "NAHN is delighted to have partnered a second year with Hispanic Communications Network (HCN)  to create the role model radio and video interviews."

"Hispanics in Nursing was designed to address the educational and professional disparities in the healthcare field, increasing the exposure of successful Hispanic role models in the nursing profession”, said NAHN President, Daniel M. Suarez, MA, RN.

The goal of the five-year campaign is to inform Hispanic men and women of all ages about careers in the field of health, especially in nursing, as well as the requirements for completion. Although it is aimed at Spanish speakers, many materials and resources will be offered in both English and Spanish.
