Western Washington National Association of Hispanic Nurses


The Western Washington Chapter of the National Association of Hispanic Nurses (WW-NAHN) is a local chapter of NAHN. Our local WW-NAHN provides a means of academic, peer, professional, financial (scholarships), community building, and cross-cultural support for Latinx students, faculty and staff at the University of Washington School of Nursing.

We are inclusive and welcome all of the UW School of Nursing community to connect with us and collaborate to advance nursing workforce diversity to eliminate health disparities. Our strategies include:

  • Mentoring and “in-time” advising to ensure recruitment and retention of Latinx students
  • Supporting the SoN’s diversity and inclusion work with prospective and enrolled students who self identify as Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
  • Aligning the SoN’s Community Health Nursing & Social Determinants of Health curricula with extracurricular volunteer opportunities that enhance the Latinx patient/client health outcomes
  • Aligning the SoN’s Health Policy curriculum with civic engagement opportunities
  • Guiding students in their trajectories to developing after college professional goals
  • Providing/identifying health disparities research to advance marginalized and underserved Latinx populations
