In January of 1986, Jesusita Pedroza-Sepulveda RN brought together the founding committee who identified the many needs of healthcare delivery system for the Hispanic community. Recognizing that the lack of Hispanic Nurses and other healthcare professionals affected access to care for the entire Hispanic Community.
This association continues to increase awareness of nursing, improve access to care by providing educational, professional, and economic opportunities for Hispanic Nurses in Illinois. In 1994 the Illinois Hispanic Nurses Association was created, known as IHNA. IHNA has since, adopted the National title, so we are now known as NAHN-Illinois.
To assess the safety and quality of healthcare delivery services.
To collaborate with other organizations committed to serving bilingual, bicultural Spanish speaking communities and increasing the pipeline of Hispanic nurses.
To provide a forum for Hispanic Nurses to analyze and evaluate the healthcare needs of the community.
NAHN-Illinois is committed to the personal and professional development of Hispanic nurses in Illinois to help reshape the healthcare system. Our members are invested in developing their personal and professional knowledge, skills, talents, and experiences to help meet the demands of our growing communities and improve health equity for all.
