CEU Brings Nurses’ Day Celebration Online
23 March 2021
With the collaboration of Centro Escolar University School of Nursing and Alumni Foundation Inc. Nursing Chapter, the Escolarian community virtually celebrated the annual Nurses’ Day on February 27 and March 8, 2021 via Zoom.
Just like how the Librada Auditorium usually gets filled during this kind of event, this year is no different because more than 500 participants joined the celebration.
With the theme, “Trailblazing Excellence Towards Quality Nursing Care”, the two consecutive Saturdays were both full of enriching talks.
The first day was also set as the 7th Dean Ida Kimseng Memorial Lecture. Dean Kimseng is the Founding Dean of the CEU School of Nursing.
“Like Dean Ida Kimseng who had a clear vision of the needs of the society, she equipped nurses to be providers of quality healthcare undertaking the risks and maintaining responsiveness to the needs of the society”, said Dr. Elvira Urgel, current Dean CEU School of Nursing.
“You have been chosen to pursue a degree with a wonderful career path. One day you will create an impact to a patient’s life through your compassion and dedication to work”, she added.
Mr. Ferdinand Aganon, CEU School of Nursing, Class of 1997 alumnus and presently a Chief Nursing Officer at the Medical City was the guest speaker.
The last day of the online event was meant for the E-Kumustahan by the Library Services, Health Services, University Ministry, Philippine Nursing Research Society and CEU Class of 2000 alumna, Ms. Wenona Cuevas Rosas, Administrator/Clinical Director at Guam Visiting Nurses.
The celebration was wrapped up with a Thanksgiving Mass led by Rev. Fr. Rindo Karripai Anthony, University Chaplain and Celebrant.
