Aspiring for Excellence and Relevance

Attending the 9th National Conference in Health Professions Education last January 31, 2017 at the GT-Toyota Asian Center that had the theme Health Professions Education as an Agent for Transformation brought about a reflection on the need to revisit our College of Nursing’s battle cry “Excellence…defined”.
