Debora La Torre:

It is an honor and privilege to serve as NAHN New Jersey Chapter President and hope to welcome you to our NAHN familia. Our NAHN New Jersey members have and continue to strive to make an impact in our Latino communities in New Jersey; From our “Muevete” campaign to donating bicycles during National Night Out in West New York, to educating our local communities on the importance of immunizations, to lifesaving techniques with the “Stop the Bleed” campaign, and having our annual scholarship fundraiser dinner that helps future generations of nurses progress within our profession. With over a decade serving New Jersey, our organization’s efforts have no known borders and have been recognized on national and state levels. We are working on a variety of healthcare projects, and community services throughout New Jersey and there are so many ways for you to get involved and have access to other motivational nurses. I hope to see you at our future events and meet our other amazing members, who aspire so many in our nursing profession.

Our Mission

The National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN), New Jersey chapter, is committed to the recruitment and retention of nurses into the nursing profession to aide and to improving health among Latinos and their communities.

NAHN New Jersey President

Benvenidos a la familia de NAHN New Jersey Chapter. ¿Quienes somos? [Who are we?]. We are an association of Hispanic and non-Hispanic nurses who strive to represent the Hispanic communities we care for throughout the state of New Jersey. NAHN NJ aims to collaborate with other entities at state and national tiers to promote health and health education to our Hispanic and underserved populations.

Our chapter prides itself on establishing nursing students’ scholarship opportunities at undergraduate and graduate levels. Many of our chapter members and leaders have guided and mentored, and continue to do so, new nurses since the genesis of the current global pandemic.

We seek young, eager minds with a drive to steer forth the future of health care within the Hispanic population in the state of NJ. Seasoned, wise nurses connect with us and become pillars in retaining our nurses. Your expertise will provide a foundation for our novice nurses who struggle with the evolution in nursing education imposed by COVID-19.

Overall, NAHN NJ survives on volunteer members’ dedication to attain the association’s goals.

I hope you join la Familia de NAHN NJ, share your ideas and concerns, and collaborate in our efforts to transform health care for our Hispanic communities.

It is an honor to be your team leader; I know it will be a humbling experience. Whether in person or virtually, I look forward to having una taza de café contigo.
