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.
