News: New org advisers for AY 09 –10

The UST College of Nursing (CON) faculty and students are in for a real change this year as new appointments have been made not only for the executive positions in the administration but also for the student organizations as well. UST-CON Regent, Rev. Fr. Julius Paul C. Factora, RN, O.P. shares, “It’s time now for a change since the two-year maximum term of some organization advisers already ended. Plus, it is also a means of professional development for the faculty members and for the organization itself”.

Newly added in the Organization Advisers roster is clinical instructor, Mr. Dennis Cuadra, RN for Red Cross Youth Council (RCYC)– Nursing Unit, replacing former RCYC adviser, Asst. Prof. Thelma Abellardo RN, MEd. “My experience working as the NCBS 2002-2003 Vice President really helped me a lot in the managerial aspect,” Cuadra says in an interview with the Nursing Journal. He adds, “My plan as the new RCYC adviser is to make the organization more visible with the primary goal of organizing the [RCYC] system first as an organization.”

From one organization to another, former Medical Missions Inc. – Nursing Group (MMI) adviser, JN Junille Paat, RN, MHSS is now the Pax Romana adviser. Pax Romana was formerly under the supervision of Asst. Prof. Editha Ocampo, BS Med Tech., MEd. “As the new organization adviser, I plan to have more activities that will foster camaraderie among members as well as meet the main objective of Pax Romana, which is to share the peace of Christ to the whole nursing community,” says Paat.

Filling the newly vacated Medical Missions Inc. – Nursing Group advisoral seat is Ms. Brenda Luy, RN. “I want to supervise the students in dealing with missions and maximize their skill/potential wherein MMI would serve as their training ground. I would also like to emphasize the spirit of volunteerism among the students and make them aware of the different situations in the country thus making them more open-minded.” As for plans as an organization adviser, she aims to nurture potential student leaders as well as make the group more independent. “Kung baga, support lang ako, sila na ung magcarry-out”, she says.

Meanwhile, the rest of the student organizations retain their advisers: Ms. Estelle Rose Lerma, RN (Nursing Chorale), Assoc. Prof. Elmer C. Hibek, Ph.D. (Nursing Journal), Ms. Monaryn Borbo, RN (Nursing Dance Troupe), Ms. Melanie Turingan, MA (Nursing Association of Student Achievers), Mr. John Vincent Ignacio, AB (Nursing Varsity Council) and Mr. Gian Carlo Torres RN, MAN and Assoc. Prof. Anita Cabezon, RN, MPH (Nursing Central Board of Students).
