Southville Nursing Riding with the Tide

The consistent stream of change in technology and the rise of disruptive innovation will certainly impact healthcare significantly. For future nurses it is imperative to prepare to match professional competencies with a growing demand for services that produce positive health outcomes in the most efficient, effective and compassionate manner within an inter-professional, collaborative practice. This was my reflection after the plenary sessions during the 10th MDC Nursing Research Congress with the theme “Building the Science and practice of Nursing Through Innovative Evidence-Based Research Discourse” held last January 18, 2017 at Manila Tytana Colleges. Together with the BSN III students (Class of 2018) who are beginning their research journey, the out-of-classroom learning experience was an eye-opener. They had the opportunity to listen to research experts, visit research posters and sit in small research presentations during the parallel sessions.

Awareness of the value of evidence-based nursing practice is just catching on in the Philippines. It will require an intense and concerted effort from both the nursing academe and nursing practice to jumpstart this inevitable wave of change. Realizing this early on, since 2012 the SISC College of Nursing had incorporated Evidence-Based Nursing Practice in the BSN program curriculum content using the Johns Hopkins Evidence-Based Practice Model as resource.
