“Today, the NAHN provides support for Hispanic nurses through various programs, including the Dr. Ildaura Murillo-Rohde Scholarship,” Google wrote. “It also honors members who have exhibited outstanding achievements in nursing education, research, and practice with the Dr. Ildaura Murillo-Rohde Award for Education Excellence by a Hispanic Registered Nurse.”
In addition to her work with NAHN, Murillo-Rohde promoted cultural awareness as a psychiatric nurse, faculty member, professor and dean. The American Academy of Nursing even honored her with its prestigious fellowship — one of the highest nursing honors in the nation.
Murillo-Rohde’s Doodle was illustrated by Loris Lora, a Latinx illustrator and designer living and working in Los Angeles.
“Hispanic Heritage Month to me is about celebrating our culture and recognizing the contributions of those who continue to inspire future generations,” Lora told Google. “I enjoy learning about minority women who were trailblazers of their time and helped create opportunities for women who came after them. My sister recently became a nurse and I found it interesting to learn about Dr. Murillo-Rohde and the things she stood for and achieved during her lifetime.”
