7 Students from Hawaii Arrive for Clinical Immersion
Chaminade University School of Nursing in Honolulu, Hawaii sends another batch of students to Silliman University under its International Nursing Clinical Immersion Program and Service-Learning slated March 8 to April 11.
This year’s batch is composed of seven students: Jadamae Agoo, Janelle Lose, Genalyn Agustin, Hanna Curtius, Jaqueline Cano, Kimberly Culver and Sierra Carter. The team is led by their professor, Dr. Edna R. Magpantay-Monroe.
The exposure program of Chaminade in Silliman is already on its second year. It is administered by the Institute of Service-Learning and the College of Nursing, and has been tailored-fit to optimize exposure to local approaches to healthcare, alternative medicine and community service.
A growing number of academic institutions in Asia and the United States send their students to Silliman every year for service-learning. Chaminade is one of its newer partners.
Silliman is one of the few universities in the Philippines that have successfully institutionalized service-learning across its disciplines. It is also a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education as designated by the Commission on Higher Education.
