NAHN Statement on Call for Justice and National Healing

So far in 2020, the National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN) thought our greatest threat was the pandemic, but we were wrong. While we have had months of unprecedented challenges facing the nursing community on the frontlines, our nurses have been fighting more than a pandemic, we are fighting for our communities, relentlessly advocating for marginalized individuals, and unite when injustices occur. We have been working for our communities who time and time again are treated poorly or simply overlooked. As nurses, we show up every day to support those who are victims of systemic racism and inequities in health care.

Today we are standing in solidarity with our allies in the fight against social injustices and to decry the senseless killing of George Floyd at the hand of police because injustices of people of color have become a societal norm that we can no longer tolerate. It has reminded us, yet again, the system is broken, and we call for profound and essential change in order to reach justice, civility, equity, and freedom from the historic and unceasing systemic racism experienced daily.

NAHN will not forget this egregious act. NAHN is committed to being an advocate and agent of change our society needs.

NAHN Calls for More Federal Action to Keep Nurses and Hispanic Communities Safe 

In response to the Coronavirus Pandemic the National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN) is calling on the federal government to protect nurses by increasing the production and distribution of personal protective gear, to develop a more robust Spanish-language public awareness campaign on the virus, and immediately approve an increase in funding to ensure that ICE detention facilities, already lagging in providing basic care, can improve and carry out necessary healthcare measures. NAHN urges greater federal intervention to assist state and local governments in their efforts to supply health care systems with personal protective equipment, ventilators, hospital beds and other critical necessities.

NAHN Focuses on Facts in Response to Covid-19

NAHN recommends that members of the public continue to practice good hand hygiene and follow CDC recommendations on everyday preventative actions. Concern, and even fear, are normal reactions among the public. That worry can be managed with accurate information. NAHN urges members of the public to stay safe, smart, and informed. The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently launched a social media campaign called Be Ready for Covid-19 that provides advice on how to protect ourselves and others. NAHN supports the practice of training healthcare professionals in early identification and notification. Nurses must receive the highest level of protection to provide care for the individuals and communities in which they serve.

Latino Leadership Institute Virtual Event - February 5-7, 2021

The NAHN Latino Leadership Institute (LLI) is a distinguished event addressing high-impact leadership development specifically tailored for Latino nurses. NAHN believes that the more we prepare our nurse leaders to become engaged as leaders, the more influence nursing and its values will have on health care priorities. Together we can impact the health care outcomes of the increased number of Latinos in our country.

The Latino Leadership Institute brings together nursing leaders from academia, research, education, and practice to address leadership roles within their workplaces, professional organizations, communities, legislative arenas and governmental agencies.

For 2021, the LLI is being offered in a convenient, economical, virtual format over three days. Experienced, developing and aspiring nurse leaders alike will be able to learn from the experts and earn CE credits, while saving on travel and lodging costs. All NAHN members are welcome and encouraged to participate to develop and build their leadership skills.

The 2021 LLI agenda and speakers can be found here.

                                   Save the Date! Registration will open soon.
