8 Students from Hawaii on Campus for Int’l Clinical Immersion
Eight students from Honolulu’s Chaminade University School of Nursing are here for an International Clinical Immersion from March 8 to April 12.
Led by professor Dr. Edna R. Magpantay-Monroe, the eight students of nursing are: Adriana Bandy, Dorian Cabanit, Danyelle Cano, Jason Castro, January DeMello, Chelsea Lynn Mckee, Whitney Sylva and Koji Yoshida.
Hosting them for their exposure program in Dumaguete City are the Institute of Service-Learning (ISL) and the College of Nursing (CN). Both units have identified partner communities where the students are given the opportunity to appreciate the local approach to healthcare and community service.
The visit of draws on the experience of Silliman University in service-learning, a teaching pedagogy that allows for a deeper familiarization with socio-economic realities on the ground. Chaminade is one a growing number of foreign universities coming to Silliman for service-learning exposure.
