Overview and metadata sections

Since 1975, the National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN) has been the nation’s leading professional society for Latino nurses. With a growing membership in 46 local chapters, NAHN represents the voices of Latino nurses in the country. Founded by Ildaura Murillo-Rohde, NAHN is devoted to promoting safe, quality health care delivery to Latino communities and individuals. Its mission is to create a cadre of highly-qualified Latino nurses by advancing educational, professional and leadership skills and opportunities for its membership. NAHN members advocate, educate, volunteer, seek partnerships, and conduct programming in the Latino community to improve outcomes, elevate literacy, heighten education, and influence policy.

This collection consists primarily of administrative and financial files of NAHN. The files contain information about conferences, board meetings, programs and projects, and financial and scholarship records. In general, the collection falls within 4 large series. Please note, this collection is unprocessed and individual boxes will cross series.

Box 1-15: Administrative, Conference, and Journal. Materials within this collection consist of correspondence, contracts with vendors, conference planning and programs, board meeting minutes and reports, and journal publications produced by NAHN.

Box 16-27: Grants, Projects, and Scholarships. This section contains grant information, projects and programs NAHN participated in, and scholarship applications. One program NAHN developed was Muevete USA, which created data on children and their knowledge of healthy choices (food and exercise).

Box 28-29: Chapter files. Materials located in this section relate to local chapters of NAHN. This can include reports to NAHN, chapter presidents, annual meeting of chapters (also within series 1), and other general information.

Box 30-45: Financial records. This series contains financial information regarding the business operations of NAHN. This includes reports to the board, financial statements, and general expenses. While the Center strives to open as much of the records to researchers, there are restrictions to this collection. Please contact the Center for more information and to obtain permission to access forms when required.
