Marianelli Hanna is a proud mom of two boys. Her eldest son, 8, is her inspiration to become a nurse. Struggling with stomach problems for the majority of his life, Marianelli has studied vast amounts of research to help alleviate her son’s pain. During a hospital visit, one of her son’s nurses recognized Marianelli’s knowledge and encouraged her to pursue nursing. Once she becomes a registered nurse, she can fulfill her passion to help others, like her son, and educate her Latino community about how to prevent common health problems, such as diabetes. Marianelli is a certified nursing assistant and the first in her family to pursue higher education.
