July 18, 2019 Thursday six faculty members from the College of Nursing were approved to undertake an immersion program on Clinical Advancement & Nursing Informatics application in St. Luke’s Medical Center – Global City, Taguig. According to the hospital team of nursing informatics specialists headed by their Associate Director, Jan Vincent Cabansag, Southville’s College of Nursing was the first academic institution that requested for an actual immersion and enhancement program in this emerging field. The St. Luke’s Informatics team speedily collaborated to create a program that would address the need for nursing faculty to learn the process and immerse in actual applications of informatics within a hospital system. The BSN faculty members in attendance declared that they were fortunate to have had an enriching learning experience and saw first-hand how the technological innovations in hospital systems directly affected the quality and efficiency of care delivery. Astrid de Leon, the Academic Coordinator who will be teaching Nursing Informatics next semester, claimed that she is now even better prepared on top of having completed her online course Leadership in Nursing Informatics for which she earned a scholarship offered by University of Michigan.
