Enrique Luna: Nursing Student Contributes to Emergency Medical Unit in Afghanistan

While many students in the School of Nursing are already working in the medical field as they earn their bachelor’s or master’s degree at California State University, Dominguez Hills, Enrique Luna is experiencing what will probably be the most challenging assignment. Capt. Luna, a registered nurse and CNOR (Certified Nurse, Operating Room) has been working at the Salerno Hospital in Afghanistan for the last nine months, where he has helped to provide aid, care, and treatment for wounded and sick United States and coalition troops as well as participating in humanitarian efforts by assisting cases that the local hospitals cannot handle.
