Hispanic Nurses, There is Power in Numbers


Lupe Hernandez, MSN, FNP-BC is leading the way for the next generation. A DNP/MBA student—and president of NAHN Illinois Chapter!—she’s sharing her leadership journey.

There’s power in numbers. Hispanic and LatinX people represent 18 percent of the U.S., but less than five percent of nurses. So with NAHN, her mission is mentorship… and Illinois is NAHN’s biggest chapter, with over 200 active members.

“We need more Hispanic and LatinX nurse managers, nurse CEOs & CNOs, and more nurses in academia. It makes a difference for Hispanic and LatinX community health.”

Listen to the podcast. Midori Trojanowski, a member of the LatinX student group, interviews Guadalupe Hernandez.
