How Diversity in Nursing Improves Healthcare
featuring Rosario Medina, PhD, FNP-BC, ACNP,CNS, FAANP
- A mentor should set expectations and performance goals (one panelist does this with a written compact that both mentor and mentee sign).
Resources and Connections
- They should connect you with collaborators and other mentors, especially those who can write letters of support.
Protection and Encouragement
- A mentor should protect you from getting over-extended into projects or clinical work that don’t aid your research.”
Rosario Medina, PhD, FNP-BC, ACNP,
“What does being a ‘Woman in Medicine’ mean to you?
Being a woman in medicine means having the voice to represent those left out of research findings or the inability to have a seat at the decision-making table. This has been even more resounding as a woman of color. I feel the immense responsibility of representing many who have never had the opportunity to be seen or heard.
How has the COVID-19 pandemic affected you personally?
COVID has forced me to reflect once again on what is really important – human caring and dignity of life. I made sure to provide life lines to family and friends with frequent check points.
I planned for safe connections, following guidelines but enhancing mental wellness, by seeing and hearing others. My resilience grew; I felt the need to share hope with friends and strangers.”

“There’s a small stretch of soil north of the Rio Grande river that’s still part of the United States, but exists below the Mexican border wall. The Atlantic went inside this no-man’s-land to uncover what life is like in a place that feels like not-quite America, but not-quite Mexico”
