Welcome to the
Los Angeles chapter-national association of hispanic nurses
Celebrating our members during:
Hispanic Heritage Month
Field of work:
Dr. Pattie Soltero Sanchez, DNP, RN-Hospital and Nursing Administration, Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center (NAHN Member)
Marcia Viana, BSN, RN, PHN-Los Angeles County Housing for Health, STAR Clinic (NAHN Member)
Agnes Bedran, BSN, RN-Nurse Manager, CARO, Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center
Dr. Soltero going above and beyond:
From April 2021 to August 2021, Pattie was appointed as the LA County DHS Nurse Lead for the development and implementation of a nurse-run clinic at the Emergency Intake Site at the Pomona Fairplex for the unaccompanied minors arriving into the United States from the US/Mexico border. Pattie was fortunate to work alongside another NAHN nurse, Marcia!
Dr. Soltero and Marcia organized a small team of DHS nurses to staff the clinic. The nurse-run clinic provided the required vaccines and emergency care that the minors needed in order to be reunified with their family/sponsor in the US. The efficiency in implementing and operating this nurse-run clinic avoided delays for the minors in their reunification process. From April to August, the clinic saw approximately 8,000 minors. After leaving our site, these minors were provided with a chance at achieving the “American dream” and becoming successful and productive citizens.
Dr. Pattie Soltero Sanchez
Nurses are talented and caring, they often go above and beyond the call of duty to care for their patients, community, and colleagues. You don’t have to look very far to find great Nurses who make a habit of getting involved and giving more of themselves than they are asked. Dr. Soltero Sanchez is one our long time La NAHN members who continues to go above and beyond. Dr. Soltero thank you for your committment.

NAHN Focuses on Facts in Response to Covid-19
NAHN recommends that members of the public continue to practice good hand hygiene and follow CDC recommendations on everyday preventative actions. Concern, and even fear, are normal reactions among the public. That worry can be managed with accurate information. NAHN urges members of the public to stay safe, smart, and informed. The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently launched a social media campaign called "Be Ready for Covid-19" that provides advice on how to protect ourselves and others. NAHN supports the practice of training healthcare professionals in early identification and notification. Nurses must receive the highest level of protection to provide care for the individuals and communities in which they serve.
