Administrative History Note

The National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN) was founded on June 11, 1974, as the Ad Hoc Committee of the Spanish Speaking/Surnamed Nurses Caucus during the American Nurses Association Convention in San Francisco, CA. The Name was changed to the National Association of Hispanic Nurses in 1979. NAHN’s mission is to further the advancement of Hispanic men and women in the health care profession and to play an active role in the development of national health care policies, programs, and issues facing the Hispanic community across the nation.

The national headquarters of NAHN moved to Washington, D.C. in an effort to place NAHN at the doorstep of the capitol, where the policy decisions are made that affect the health care issues of Hispanics. Acting on a mandate from the all the chapters, the national office in Washington is deeply involved in the legislative process to protect the valued interests of the Hispanic community and Hispanic health care professionals.

NAHN’s philosophy: NAHN strives to serve the nursing and health care delivery needs of the Hispanic community and the professional needs of Hispanic nurses. NAHN is design and committed to work toward the improvement of the quality of health and nursing care for Hispanic consumers and toward providing equal access to education, professional, and economic opportunities for Hispanic nurses.

The San Antonio Chapter was organized around 1989. The first newsletter for the chapter in the collection is Vol. 1, No.6 published in November 1989, indicating that Vol. 1, No. 1 would have been published in January 1989 as it was published bi-monthly. At that time there were 154 members.
