2009 San Antonio Conference
Hispanic Nurses: Creating Pathways to Reduce Health Disparities
July 21-24, 2009 Crowne Plaza Riverwalk Hotel, San Antonio, Texas
The National Association of Hispanic Nurses™ hosted their 34th Annual Conference in San Antonio, Texas on July 21-24, 2009 at the Crowne Plaza Riverwalk Hotel. The National Association of Hispanic Nurses™ represents more than 50,000 Hispanic nurses in America, approximately 1.7% of the total nursing population.
Using the theme “Creating Pathways to Reduce Health Disparities”, the National Association of Hispanic Nurses™ highlighted the diverse ways in which Hispanic nurses help to improve health care. From decreasing clinical errors due to language and racial barriers to increasing diversity at the senior nursing ranks, the National Association of Hispanic Nurses™ is creating a culture of retention.
On the first official day of the conference, Tuesday, July 21st, 2009 at 11:00am, the Commissioners Court of Bexar County presented a Proclamation to the National Association of Hispanic Nurses™ recognizing the week of July 20, 2009 through July 24, 2009 as “National Hispanic Nurses’ Week” in San Antonio, Texas.
