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.
