Meet our 2021 Spring Ambassadors!
Hello all! My name is Lizette Serrato, and I am an Emergency Department nurse working at a level 1 trauma center. I obtained my degree in nursing, minor in Spanish, and healthcare interpretation certificate in May of 2019. As a bilingual first-generation college graduate, I knew my purpose was beyond being just a nurse— it was to be an advocate for Hispanic patients by ensuring they are heard and understood in their native language.
By August of 2019 I was accepted into a nurse graduate program in my specialty. Little did I know I had entered the world of nursing during a pandemic. The transition from “new grad” to “new nurse” was overwhelming, but nonetheless, I was proudly serving my community as a Latina, RN!
