Dolores Trujillo, RN, appointed to CA Board of Registered Nursing
California Nurses Association (CNA) board member Dolores Trujillo, RN, of Sacramento has been appointed to a four-year position on the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN), CNA announced today.
The nine-member board regulates registered nurses in order to protect the public by setting RN educational standards, approving California nursing programs, evaluating licensure applications and more. Four board positions are filled by members of the public and five are registered nurses.
“We could not be more proud to know that Dolores has been appointed to the state Board of Registered Nursing. Her skills, experience and compassion will be instrumental in helping to shape the practice of registered nursing in this state,” said CNA Executive Director Bonnie Castillo, RN.
Trujillo—who has been a registered nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Kaiser Hospital in Roseville since 2010 and an RN and charge nurse at Kaiser Hospital in Sacramento from 2000 to 2010—says she is thrilled to be a voice for her fellow nurses.
“I am both honored and humbled to be appointed to the BRN,” said Trujillo. “I intend to bring the voice of the bedside nurse to this appointment, and to stand up for the issues impacting our profession. I will do right in advocating for registered nurses throughout California.”
The California Nurses Association has 100,000 members and is a founding member of National Nurses United, the largest and fastest growing union and professional association of registered nurses in the United States with more than 150,000 members nationwide. CNA/NNU plays a leadership role in safeguarding the health and safety of RNs and their patients and has won landmark legislation in the areas of staffing, safe patient handling, infectious disease, and workplace violence prevention.
