NAHN Supports our DACA Community

The National Association of Hispanic Nurses has a long-standing commitment to a diverse and culturally competent health care workforce. The values of diversity, inclusion, and equitable care are central to NAHN’s mission. The federal government’s announcement that it is rescinding Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which has provided essential protection to some of our colleagues, patients, and to the nearly 800,000 undocumented yo...ung people nationwide, goes against our most basic values of equity and fairness.

The United States’ increasingly diverse population is rapidly growing. Research has shown that diversity in the healthcare workforce improves patient outcomes especially in populations with a history of barriers in access to care. The administration’s action to rescind DACA will impact many of our colleagues who have chosen professions in health care. We strongly support these individuals who can contribute to the health of their communities.
We urge members of Congress to put aside bipartisan rhetoric, and come together to provide permanent solutions so that members of the health care workforce with DACA status are able to continue their education and work to help our nation decrease health disparities in our communities.

This is Nurse Jessica Esparza’s story of immigration, achievement, sacrifice, determination, humanity and pathway into nursing. Her story is chronicled on Crosscut by Enrique Cerna and we at WW-NAHN are moved by her resilience and humbled by her contributions to the nursing profession. We first learned about Jessica in 2014, when we founded WW-NAHN, and as proud Latinx, screened the documentary produced by Mr. Cerna, titled: “Latinos: The Changing Face of Washington.” As Lati...nx Nurses, we wanted to educate our audience on the importance of representation of Latinx nurses in our profession and on the health of Washingtonians. Jessica’s story in the documentary exemplified the unforgiving hardships faced by Undocu-Latinx youth who dream of becoming nurses. But, above all, Jessica’s story was one of pride and empowerment. DACA became Jessica’s pass to nursing school and to attaining her degree in 2015. Last December 2017, the National Association of Hispanic Nurses and the American Nurses Association along with more than 50 Health organizations expressed support for DACA recipients in a letter to Congress, due to their collective good to health and those most vulnerable. WW-NAHN stands with DACA recipients. Link to letter:…/…/healthprofessionscallfordacafix.pdf

Mary Mahoney Professional Nurses Organization,King County Nurses Association & WW-NAHN come together to provide free health screenings & health education in honor of MLK Day of service.

The WW-NAHN is proud to award three scholarships of $1,500 each to LatinX nursing students who are pursuing a nursing degree in Western Washington.
All student recipients are current WW-NAHN members and are engaged in serving the LatinX community through volunteering and/or work. Students receiving this 2017 WW-NAHN Scholarship reflect in their work a commitment and passion for addressing health disparities and inequalities affecting the most marginalized and vulnerable LatinX populations. In addition, student recipients identify the positive impact their diverse and unique perspectives bring to the nursing profession.
Thanks to the Salal Credit Union and Gerardo Campos for their generous 2017 scholarship contribution!
