Houston Chapter

The Houston Chapter provides an important voice for Hispanic nurses and the Hispanic community. Its members are active in the local health care issues and are committed to increasing educational and professional opportunities for Hispanic nurses and nursing students through networking and mentoring. Its members are also instrumental in providing culturally competent health care for Hispanic consumers.

The Houston chapter is upholding NAHN's commitment to students by partnering with Jones Futures academy. Jones is unique in that it gives high school students an opportunity to graduate with an associates degree in nursing. The curriculum is at college level and they have a state of the art  skills lab. Our chapter's role is to mentor these students by providing academic, career and skills guidance. Fostering a mentor/men tee relationship is important for the student and can help them transition from student nurse to nurse. 

We are proud to have been selected by national to participate in the 2015-2016 Muevete campaign. Many of our members have experienced interest in this particular project and we are currently in "teach the teacher" phase. We are excited at the opportunity to teach young children the importance of proper nutrition and exercise so they may adopt  these healthy behaviors for the rest of their lives. 

Our chapter is also in the infancy stage of establishing a Hispanic cancer network. Cherry Sloan, ex president of PNAMH, is assisting us. The development of the project as she was instrumental in the success of the Philippine cancer network. This network will assist those families struggling with a diagnosis of cancer via funds, education, nutrition, emotional support, etc.

Our Chapter members are involved in promoting health care opportunities and education to the Hispanic/Latino population in our community. One of our primary goals is to facilitate the educational growth of Hispanic health care providers to better serve the needs in our community. One aspect to consider is the need to maintain good health so they can progress to higher educational attainment. Our Chapter is involved with the local school districts and other health agencies with participation in health fairs, educational promotions and by promoting and enhancing opportunities through mentoring and leadership skills in participation in local and national committees.

We have participated in the Muevete USA program fashioned after First Lady Michele Obama Move USA to help reduce the obesity problem in our youth to encourage lifestyle changes for optimal health. Our chapter has also been active in providing assistance in the ACA enrollment process so that families can gain access to health care for a better and healthier life.

As members, we have the opportunity have experts present on relevant topics that may affect our practice, professional and personal lives. We have had licensed professional counselors present on family violence and violence against LGBT, physicians who deal with bariatric care and metabolic disease, nursing expert who presented on Nurse-to-Nurse Bullying, and for personal needs, Financial Planning.

We extend an invitation to you to join our chapter as a professional or health care personnel/affiliate seeking to address health care disparities.
