Florida Atlantic University Professor Named New SISC College of Nursing Adviser



“Nursing is caring…” This was what Dr. Rozzano C. Locsin, a distinguished Professor of the College of Nursing of Florida Atlantic University and the newest member of the Board of Advisers of the College of Nursing of Southville International School & Colleges, said as he summed up what Nursing is to be.
In his visit to SISC last week, Dr. Locsin further clarified that “Caring is not just holding your patient’s hand but yet unable to explain or interpret what his ECG is showing. He said that caring is being competent and knowing. Caring, in this age, also means understanding and making use of technology.
As author, researcher and academician, Dr. Locsin advocates the development of middle-range theories in the field of nursing practice and education. He encourages academic institutions to give premium on faculty researches. Dean Carmelita Villegas of the College of Nursing expressed delight and is looking forward to a collaborative exchange of ideas to heighten interest in undergraduate as well as post-graduate researches.
Dr. Locsin is joined by other equally distinguished Board of Advisers for the College of Nursing, namely-Dr. Teresita Barcelo, current President of the Philippine Nurses Association: Dr. Domingo Nuñez, Senior Professor of the graduate school of Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila & President of Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Montalban: Mrs. Ester Romano, Director of Patient Care Services of Asian Hospital & Medical Center and Dr. Corazon Soqueño, Director of Nursing of Las Piñas Doctors Hospital.
