Filipino-American heads largest nurses union in U.S.

This September, Filipino-American Zenei Triunfo Cortez, will officially join three other women on the President’s Council of the California Nurses Association, and become the first Filipino-American to lead the largest union of nurses in the U.S.

Cortez was 19 when she migrated with her family to the U.S. in 1974. With over 25 years experience as a nurse, Cortez will spearhead advocacy efforts for over 75,000 registered nurses in California, where nurses recruited from the Philippines have become major contributors to U.S. healthcare.
