Candidate for 2016-2019 Board Member:

Veronica Vital, PhD, RN

Relevant NAHN Experience:

I have been actively involved as a NAHN member since 1997. At a national capacity, I am a member of the NAHN Board of Directors. I serve as the Chair of the By-Laws Committee; member of the NAHN Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) committee; and previously served as the Chair of the Nominating Committee. Locally, I am the President of the Phoenix Chapter and served 4 years as the Vice President. In the past, I served as President of our chapter for 5 years. I have lead the Phoenix Chapter’s efforts in Muevete USA, SEPA, and co-leading the Mentorship Academy.

Platform Statement

I am very passionate and committed to the mission and goals of NAHN as evident by my continued involvement with NAHN since 1997. As a member of the Board of Directors, my goal is to work collaboratively with other members to ensure the mission, purpose, goals, and priorities of the organization are adequately developed and policies are executed in a manner to promote the success of NAHN. My experience with NAHN and ability to work well as a team player would be valuable assets for a board member. I attained my PhD in nursing and feel my research experience can help promote NAHN’s efforts to reduce healthcare disparities among Hispanics. Being a member of NAHN has been a major contributing factor to my educational and professional achievements and I aspire to serve as a NAHN leader to empower other members to pursue higher education and become future leaders of NAHN.
