Herzing University today announced it is partnering with the National Association of Hispanic Nurses to help Hispanic nurses advance their careers and improve the health of their communities.
Through the partnership, NAHN members are eligible for tuition discounts on all of Herzing's undergrad and graduate nursing programs, including the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree, RN to BSN completion program, Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree and post-master's certificate programs. Members can also apply the tuition discount toward healthcare management programs or an MBA.
"We are thrilled to launch this partnership which, in alignment with our strategic mission, increases educational opportunities for Latino nurses," said Norma Cuellar, PhD, RN, FAAN, current president of NAHN. "We believe that the more doors we can open for students to pursue nursing careers, the greater our chances of developing a culturally and linguistically competent workforce, which is in turn linked to increased patient satisfaction, improved communication and greater healthcare access."

- Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)

"We're excited about this opportunity to work with NAHN, and we hope that many members take advantage of this opportunity."
