The Chicago Bilingual Nurse Consortium (CBNC) celebrated International Nurses’ Day with their annual event and fundraiser on May 12th.
CBNC is a local nonprofit group that assists Internationally Educated Nurses (IEN’s) to complete the requirements for Registered Nurse licensure in the United States.
Five newly licensed nurses who benefited through CBNC were honored during the celebration. They are: Valentina Figueroa -Chile, Mirjana Ivkov -Serbia, Tatyana Kovalevsky -Ukraine, Karen McShane -Chile and Mengyuan (Summer) Wang -China. Congratulations to these exceptional RN’s who are delivering culturally sensitive care to patients throughout Chicago.
CBNC sends a special “thank you” to all of our benefactors for their generosity. We also thank our area businesses that donated in many ways. Especially a big round of applause to the CBNC Platinum Sponsor Dave Samber of Polo Café and Catering who made this an outstanding event. It was a wonderful evening and CBNC looks forward to next year!
