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.
