Beginning the Academic Year: The Nursing Way

Highlighting the College of Nursing’s Related Learning Experience (RLE) Orientation week and opening of classes was an important and informative session with guest lecturer Mr Nico Annonuevo, Head of Infection Control at Asian Hospital and Medical Center. His topic on Preventing Hospital Acquired Infections by Observing the 5 Moments in Handwashing is a program propagated by the World Health Organization, while his lecture on HIV/AIDS Awareness Campaign was made more vivid by showing a short film “Pasa”, a creative output by Ernest Gatpandan III under the mentorship of the internationally renowned Filipino film director Brillante Mendoza.
Both sessions improved the awareness of nursing students on their vital role in preventing infection by consistently practicing good handwashing techniques, and playing an active role as educators in promoting health through information dissemination.
