The wEST fLORIDA Chapter provides an important voice for Hispanic nurses and those interested in the Hispanic community. Its members are active in various causes at the local, state and national level. They 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 National Association of Hispanic Nurses was founded in 1975 by Ildaura Murillo Rhode, RN, Ph. D., ND, FAAN. It evolved out of the Ad Hoc Committee of the Spanish Surnamed Nurses’ Caucus, which was formed during the American Nurses Association convention in San Francisco in 1974. In 1976, the fledgling organization became the National Association of Spanish-Speaking/Spanish Surnamed Nurses, which was renamed as the National Association of Hispanic Nurses in 1979.
