Hola, I’m Martha Salmon and I am the Founder and Owner of Latina, RN.
I work as a Pediatric nurse on the Liver/Kidney Transplant. I have been a nurse for a total of 9 years. I started as an LVN, but becoming a Registered Nurse had always been my purpose. After getting pregnant at the age of 19 and only 3 months into my LVN program, becoming an RN seemed to be impractical; though having many obstacles stacked against me, such as: having 2 kids, a husband, and a home to keep up, all by the time I was 21, I was determined to push forward and achieve my goals of becoming the first Latina, RN in my family. I want nothing more than to influence, inspire and help people from all over reach their goals, regardless of the challenges life may provide. I started the movement: Latina, RN, with high hopes to remind people to be proud of where they came from, and encourage more Latinos to pursue a career in nursing. I strongly believe, “If she could do it, anyone can do it!”
