Ildaura Murillo-Rohde was born on September 6, 1920, in Panama and passed away on September 5, 2010, also in Panama. Coming from a family of health professionals, she first decided to pursue a career in medicine. Because of WW II, she opted for nursing to “join the army and help.” She received her diploma from the Medical and Surgical Hospital School of Nursing in San Antonio, Texas, in 1948. While in nursing school she became interested in psychiatric nursing, obtaining a BA from Teachers College, Columbia University in teaching and supervision of psychiatric nursing. She then received an MA from Columbia University in teaching and curriculum development Psychiatric Nursing in 1953. This was followed by an M. Ed. in Education and Administration from Columbia in 1969. In 1971 she obtained a Ph.D. from New York University in Higher Education in Psychiatric Nursing and Sociology. She later studied at the Institute of Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis as a basis for a clinical practice in psychotherapy and marriage and family therapy.

She held academic, administrative and consulting positions in several states including Bellevue Hospital School of Nursing in New York City; Wayne County General Hospital, Eloise, Michigan; University of Washington School of Nursing, Seattle, Washington; University of Puerto Rico; University of Antioquia, Columbia; New York Medical College; City University of New York; and finally as Dean and Professor Emerita, State University of New York. She was associated with professional organizations and their activities wherever her teaching career took her.

Dr. Murillo-Rohde was instrumental in founding the National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN) in 1975, when it became apparent the ANA was not meeting the needs of Latina nurses. It evolved from the Ad Hoc Committee of the Spanish-Speaking/Spanish Surname Nurses’ Caucus formed in 1974. In her name, this organization now sponsors an award in any distinguished scholarship area and/or nursing education and a scholarship for Hispanic Students enrolled in a nursing program leading to licensure.

Wherever Dr. Murillo-Rohde found herself, she became active in local issues pertaining to nursing education, AIDS, cancer care, marriage and family therapy, family relations, and cultural diversity. She was influenced by Dr. Hildegard Peplau’s interpersonal theory of nursing when she did her masters and bachelors work at Columbia. Dr. Murillo-Rohde felt that this theory blended well with her own ideas: the concepts of community, respect, optimism and belief in the client being inherent in cross cultural nursing.

Dr. Murillo-Rohde passed away on September 5, 2010 in her native country of Panama.

Scope and Contents

This collection reflects the many facets of Dr. Murillo-Rohde’s interests, activities, and her involvement in local and international arenas. Her philosophy ultimately developed while working with Dr. Hildegard Peplau whose theory of nursing influenced Dr. Murillo-Rohde’s beliefs.

Her philosophy quoted from “Contemporary Minority Leaders in Nursing: Afro American, Hispanic, Native American Perspectives” ANA, 1983 reads: “I believe that nursing is the compassionate, effective, and humane care given by one who is educated and trained in the art and science of nursing to someone who is in need of help because of problems in health or in activities of his daily life. Nursing at its highest level encompasses the teaching of the individual to know his body and its functions for the maintenance and promotion of health and prevention of disease. Self-care can be, and is, very efficacious when people are encouraged and guided to learn to care for themselves, whenever possible…Recognition of human variation is basic to sensitive and effective nursing care and outcomes.”

This collection outlines the various steps in the formation of National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN) and demonstrates Dr. Dr. Murillo-Rohde’s response and action to a perceived need.

She traveled extensively outside of the United States at the request of diverse organizations also in response needs her field.
