A new program was recently announced by the National Association of Hispanic Nurses and Chamberlain College that will provide more access to education resources to over 3,000 Hispanic nurses in the United States and Puerto Rico.
The nursing college association’s new program will provide members with the ability to access reduced tuition rates for programs that are taken following initial nursing licensing.
The NAHN nursing college program will allow association members who meet Chamberlain College’s admission standards to access the reduced tuition for the college’s RN to BSN degree programs, as well as Master of Science in Nursing Degrees and the online programs available for these degrees. Hispanic nurses can get their application fees waived and will be provided with admission and enrollment assistance by a college representative as part of the program.
In a press release about the new program, Angie Millan, president of NAHN said, “NAHN is committed to advancing the educational, professional and leadership skills of Hispanic nurses, in order to increase ethnic diversity and more accurately represent the general population. Our program with Chamberlain encourages Hispanic nurses to pursue the advanced education they need, as well as respond to new complexities in the healthcare system.”
NAHN is a charity organization that helps nursing colleges and professionals realize their potential and accommodate the needs of the Hispanic community. The program will help to create more Hispanic nurses to help care for a growing Hispanic population in the United States.
The program at Chamberlain College of Nursing is offering multiple degree levels to Hispanic and non-Hispanic nursing students, including bachelor and master’s degrees. The nursing college has campuses in Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Ohio, Texas, and Virginia and is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission, just one of six agencies that accredit this level of nursing colleges.
