Ana Perez recently graduated from DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois. When she was younger, Ana was hospitalized and had to undergo a surgical procedure. While in the hospital, she realized how many interactions a patient has with a nurse and how vital that role is. That experience opened Ana’s eyes to the career opportunities in the nursing field and a bright future that her immigrant parents would want for her. During her clinicals in the maternity labor and delivery unit, Ana realized the need for Spanish-speaking nurses.
