The Association of Deans of Philippine Colleges of Nursing Summer Workshop 2010

Nursing has become one of the most in-demand educational degrees in the Philippines in the past few years. With the clamor for more nurses both here and abroad, nursing education in the country should continually improve, at the same time inculcating personal values and leadership qualities that would further give our nurses an edge.

Through the leadership of the Association of Deans of Philippine Colleges of Nursing (ADCPN), annual and summer workshops have been conducted from its inception, concentrating on quality instruction and quality outcomes, which contribute to a more positive outlook in the competencies of nurses.

This year, the ADCPN’s summer workshop was held at the Manila Hotel last May 4 and 5. Carried by the theme “The Call to Professional and Personal Leadership,” the conference served as a challenge for administrators of nursing schools in the country to continually secure their growth as educator, administrators, and individuals.

The ADCPN Summer Conference was aptly themed as there are constant changes in the approaches in delivering quality education. This year, members of the ADCPN were also given the chance to interact with official from the Commission on Higher Education and the Professional Regulation Commission.

The ADCPN was established in 1959 and is now led by Dean Carmelita Divinagracia,
