International Bilingual Nurses Alliance
The Chicago Bilingual Nurse consortium is a member of the International Bilingual Nurses Alliance. The mission of the alliance is to foster the development and implementation of programs for internationally educated nurses who seek licensure in the United States. The International Bilingual Nurses Alliance is committed to improving the success of internationally educated nurses on the licensure process; performance on the United States of America (USA) healthcare setting; enhance their career; and indirectly affecting the health care needs of minority populations in the USA. We believe this can be accomplished by providing educational and professional activities for internationally educated nurses, thereby increasing the pool of bilingual nurses. For more information on the alliance, please contact Graciela Reyes-Salinas at Graciela@IBNAlliance.org or Marilyn Chapman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
