Thank you to all who came out to the Pfizer training on Saturday at the University of South Florida.  We had over 23 in attendance.  We appreciate Pfiezer and Dr. Iglesias for the stellar presentation.    If you attended the training or would like to participate in spreading the word on the importance of immunizations to our Hispanic elderly population let us know.   If you would like to attend one of the community  outreach events please email our chapter president Dr. Ivonne Hernandez at  

We will be sending out via email further information of times and dates of the events.  Please stay tuned.

Happy National Hispanic Heritage Month 

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.
