A brief history of Hispanic nurses - The National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN) was founded in 1975 by Ildaura Murillo-Rohde, PhD, RN, ND, FAAN. It evolved out of the Ad Hoc Committee of the Spanish-Speaking/Spanish Surname Nurses' Caucus, which was formed during the American Nurses Association convention in San Francisco in 1974. In 1976, the organization became the National Association of Spanish-Speaking / Spanish-Surnamed Nurses, which was renamed as the National Association of Hispanic Nurses in 1979.
