John Ngo (BSN IV student) spoke of his experience saying, “Being able to see first-hand what each patient room looks like and how things work definitely gave me a heads up experience on what to expect when I start working as a nurse in such a large modern hospital. It’s really great to see Southville nursing graduates making a difference and I am excited to do the same as well“.
Another BSN IV student, Rex Calimlim, said, “We are really fortunate to be able to get first-hand experience and listen to some great resource speakers on cancer, that is more valuable than the information I get from just reading books. Southville gave me an opportunity to experience that.”
Rachel Manalac, also a BSN IV student commented, “The venue was nice and we were taken cared of really well. I really liked how St Luke’s involved many of their staff in the presentations and also, they gave out prizes.”
In addition, Kurt Vernon Beaty who joined in the program’s games said, “I am really proud I was able to represent Southville at this event. I felt satisfied that I was able to enjoy being part of the program.”
The event was well-attended, with participants coming from came from varied Metro Manila hospitals, and by medical, pharmacy and nursing students from the University of Sto Tomas, the University of the Philippines, St .Jude College, to name a few.
