The Constitution State now has its own chapter of the National Association of Hispanic Nurses, new as of spring 2010! They're eager to welcome new nurses interested in working toward improving the health care and quality of life of the Hispanic community. The organization promotes furthering nursing education, promoting and providing culturally competent care, and eliminating health disparities.
"As President of the Connecticut Chapter of NAHN, I am committed to providing an environment where we are all able to work together towards the same common goals of our National Association, and that is to increase the number of Hispanic/Latinos seeking nursing as a career," says chapter President Maria D. Krol, M.S.N., R.N.C.-N.I.C. "We want our nursing students to find mentorship within an association that will help them enter the nursing profession and encourage them to further their education."
"The time has come for Hispanic/Latinos to get involved to increase our numbers and to help improve the health of our communities," Krol says. And you could be the next one to join. For more information, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
