Philippine Nurses Association of America  

37th Annual National Convention

Washington, Washington DC

July 20-24, 2016

By: Vivian D. Sanderlin, BSN, RN, PHN

 

     The Philippine Nurses Association of America (PNAA) celebrated its 37th Annual National Convention on July 20-24, 2016 held at Grand Hyatt, Washington in Metropolitan DC. The theme of the event was “Lead, Empower, and Transform: Leading the Way to Innovation Excellence through H.E.A.L.T.H. (Health, Empowerment, Advancement, Leadership, Transformation, and Healing)”. The Convention aimed to inspire members to join other organizations, in leading change and advancing health for the Future of Nursing. For 37 years, the PNAA has been involved in serving the interest of Filipino-American nurses in the United States and throughout the world through advocacy, healthcare outreach, and partnership with professional and civic organizations, leadership development, continuing education, research and volunteerism. These are some remarkable achievements that we can all be proud of in advancing health for all citizens and enhancing nursing’s contribution to the society.

PNASD attendees to this event were Board of Directors Dr. Merlie Ramira, Vickie Berbano, Chona Lutap, President Vivian Sanderlin, Officers Lorna Herce, Emeline Yabut, members Filipinas Reyes, Ycel Delacruz and Merlyn Foronda, PNA South Riverside County President Gigi Narisma and President-Elect Gina Cascolan and member, Benita Valle.

Wednesday, July 20th: The afternoon meeting involved Circle of Presidents and Regional meetings by Eastern, Western, North Central and South Central regions followed by A Welcome night. There were a lot of greeting exchanges from all chapter members throughout the night at a Chinese restaurant where the Metropolitan DC hosted us for a sumptuous Chinese Lauriat.

Thursday, July 21st:  Event registration started early at 0700 to which bagel with cream cheese and toasts were served for breakfast at the conference hall. There were Exhibitors that have already set -up that morning and everyone had a chance to look around. I was able to talk to some donors willing to participate at PNASD’s Fall Seminar for September in San Diego and business cards were exchanged. In a separate room, evidence-based practice Abstracts were presented by individuals, mostly summaries of their research projects.



PNAA President Address by Atty. Leticia Hermosa started the morning Leadership program followed by a welcome by Chair, Dr. Rey Rivera. The leadership program offers innovative ideas to equip one as a leader focusing on transformational leader and how to be an effective communicator.  After lunch, some members went for a tour to the National Institutes of Health at Bethesda, Maryland. PNASD member and one of the Evidence Abstract Poster Presenters, Ms. Merlyn Foronda participated in the tour and has a separate write-up with pictures. The Networking night commenced with its theme “Philippine Cultural Heritage Thru Fashion” in the evening.  A Parade of Banners by Chapter Presidents and President-Elects were introduced as they paraded to the hall. The highlight of the Networking night was the presentation by each region of their Philippine dance to which the Western region presented a dance in their native Philippine Barong Tagalog or “saya” attire. There was no competition this time among the regions unlike in the past, but I admired the Singkil dance performed by the Eastern region.    

 Friday, July 22nd: On the Education Day, there were several speakers that talked about the Future of Nursing, Transforming Healthcare, Leaders in Nursing Research, Magnet Recognition, Multiple Myeloma Role of Nurses, Leadership Fellows Program and Open Educational Resources for Nurses Around The World. It described how nurses are leading and transforming healthcare, the art of healing, importance of magnet program, research and education resources for nurses.  The conference ended with the recognition of the first time attendees and submitting our evaluation forms. It provided 4 contact hours. The afternoon was spent by some members who signed up for Potomac River Cruise. I spent the afternoon gallivanting around WA DC with two other PNASD members touring the Capitol Hill and White House vicinity.

Saturday July 23rd:  The early morning designated the PNAAF Zumbathon Challenge by each region performing to their planned Zumba dance. Everyone seemed to have fun. At 9:00 am, the PNAA General Assembly meeting began with over 400 delegates present. This was the “Nuts & Bolts” of the entire Convention. Each committee presented their accomplishments.  Reports were given, logistics discussed and the new President, Mr. Dino Doliente was confirmed.  A new batch of PNAA officers, Committee chairmen and members were formed. On this day, PNASD presented a bid with 2 other chapter competitors, New Jersey and Chicago for the 2018 National Convention. Dr. Merlie Ramira and Emeline Yabut presented a video as to why we should hold the 2018 National Convention in San Diego, CA. At first, San Diego tied points with New Jersey but after a recount, San Diego lost the bid by 2 points vote. It did not dampen our feelings as we know we have many chances to bid as host of future PNAA Conventions.  The Gala event was held in the evening with the theme of Ambassadors of Nations. The event was centered on recognizing Scholarship recipients and Special awards.  The evening affair showcased the glamour and elegance of PNAA and guests dining to filet mignon dinner with chocolate mousse for dessert. There was singing of Filipino songs by a group of Anglo-American group to the amazement of the crowd. Also, a portrayal by PNAMDC as the first Ladies of U.S. A. was very impressive and fun to watch. The night was highlighted with “Dancing ‘till you drop” session. The dance floor involved more networking as everyone danced to the beat of music provided by PNAMDC DJ.

Sunday July 15th:  The day started with a 9:00 AM Thanksgiving Mass with a parade of candles dedicated to Cancer survivors and non-survivors. More networking with fellow delegates and fond goodbyes were exchanged after the mass.  

PNASD thanks the PNAMDC for their effort in making this a successful event and my heartfelt gratitude to all PNASD member attendees. See you next year on a cruise ship for the 2017 National Convention in Florida.

My First Experience of Attending PNAA National Convention
Washington DC
July 21-24, 2016
By:  Merlyn Foronda, BSN, RN, MSN

 

     I didn’t know what to expect being a first timer at the PNAA National Convention. I just joined PNASD last year and I only knew a few people and a few of their activities. Since I’ve been attending yearly national nursing conferences related to my field, which is neonatal, I thought it was just same old ordinary conference where I am a passive listener with the exception that I will be one of the poster presenter. But this was immediately changed on the very first night of the event, the Welcome Night. I’ve met fellow PNA members from different states. I’ve even met friends from Florida whom I haven’t seen for more than 20 years! It was just fun to meet people who are excited and enthusiastic to be part of this event.

    I was chosen to participate in the National Institute of Health Research Orientation. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity, my first tour to NIH and learned about some of their innovative research on biomedical and behavioral health. One of the topics discussed which I find very interesting, was about Health Disparities and Minority Health. As an American minority, I have felt that ethnic minorities and the working poor have been subject to discrimination. And it’s good to know that there are programs and clinical research being done at NIH to reduce health disparities and improve minority health. As part of the orientation, we also visited the National Library of Medicine, the world’s largest medical library and the NIH Clinical Center, the nation’s largest hospital devoted entirely to clinical research.

    Lastly, the Networking Night was really fun! Each PNA region prepared a dance, a play or a fashion show presenting our Filipino cultural heritage. I can’t help but be proud that I have been a part of this conference.     


 


 

American Cancer Society Kick off breakfast by Vickie Berbano

This is the first year that the "kick off "breakfast occurred at Paradise Cove, San Diego, CA. It was a great venue.  I started to see pink polka dots, face painting of the MSABC  logo. It was exciting to see survivors, people undergoing Chemotherapy in a jovial mood. Sam Bass opened the event with survivors speaking of their journey. The team leaders were given their tools to use to ask for donation"to find the cure".

As the team Leader for Team PNASD, with the help of Jennifer Kalker, Director of MSABC , we launched our dashboard for people to directly donate.

Annual PNASD Family Potluck Picnic
August 21, 2016
Vacation Isle Park, San Diego, California

The annual summer PNASD Family Potluck picnic was held last August 21, 2016 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm at Vacation Isle Park, San Diego, CA. It was well attended by PNASD members, their families and friends. The location was right in front of the San Diego Bay water surrounded by large shady trees and mild wind breeze, we could not ask for a more perfect weather that day.

PNASD members wore “anything pink” outfit to signify the Breast Cancer walk that PNASD will participate on next month, October 16 at Balboa Park.

The picnic area and concrete tables were cleaned up and arranged by early riser, Ms. Vivian Sanderlin, PNASD President and her husband. Ms. Lorna Herce, the picnic coordinator, brought Filipino food donated by PNASD for its members. Each attendee contributed something. There was a short program with introduction by all including introduction of recent new members.

Everyone seemed to have enjoyment during the game activities that included hat relay, apple dance, egg run and the group performed some heart exercise line dancing activity. The hour went fast as we all had fun eating, laughing, talking and networking with each other.

We would like to thank everyone that joined our picnic and we invite you to come again on August 2017.

First Aid Assist by PNASD at the OLMC Fiesta, August 27, 2016
by Vickie Berbano

The weather couldn't be more beautiful for the day of the fiesta. Watching the families come in with their children in tow was a site. They were looking forward for the games eagerly awaiting to "dunk" Father Ignatius to the awaiting cool water receptacle below. For 2 tickets you can do it. The children watch in glee.

The food regalia for the fund raiser did not leave anyone disappointed. Tessie Porciuncula alone sold her pastries and cake in no time. The "cookie monsters" gathered around her to satisfy their sweet tooth.The best decorated and food that satisfied the palate was headed by Carrie Manuel. The booth look like we are in the Philippines partaking of the food in the native Bahay Kubo. They wore the Philippine patadyong.

PNASD's participation as nurses of course was our first aide booth. We are lucky not to have anyone pass out after drinking beer & eating bratwurst.

The parishioners demonstrated once again their commitment to Our Lady of Mt Carmel the church atop Stoney Creek.

All had fun that was the intent and the fundraising event was successful.

 

 

 

PNASD Education 2016 Fall Seminar Was a Success!

Lourdes DePerio MSN RN

Last September 24, 2016, the Philippine Nurses Association of San Diego, Inc (PNASD) held its Fall Education Seminar at Sharp Spectrum. It was attended by 93 registered nurses, 36 nursing students from local hospitals as well as from Orange County, Los Angeles and Inland Empire in San Diego and 9 vendors whom the audience enjoyed perusing through. The attendance was overwhelming and beyond our expectations to reach this height of participation. Through a concerted effort from Sharp Spectrum Facilities, United States University who provided the bags and signage, to Transamerica Insurance who provided the food, and loyal and committed PNASD members, we accomplished our goal to put out a great seminar.  

The theme of the seminar was “Building a Culture of Partnership to Advance Health Care”, an appropriate theme to address the current trends affecting nursing practice. Invited speakers delivered powerful messages to all nurses including students.

His presentation was very well applauded by the audience. He was inspirational and truly was a great leader to look up to.

Dr Merlie Ramira, DNP, Vice President of the Western Region of PNAA and Past President of PNASD was the second speaker on the Future of Nursing Based on the Institute of Medicine (IOM) Reports. She eloquently emphasized the IOM Report Recommendation namely:  a) Removing the Scope of Practice b) Achieving higher levels of education c) need for diversity in the nursing workforce d) collaboration, leadership & communication e) need for better data for assessing and driving progress. Several recommendations to meet each of the IOM report was mentioned and clearly explained. So what does the future hold for the profession? Dr Ramira stated “We need to build a culture for health action teamwork through a shared value, collaboration, creating a healthier and more equitable community strengthening integration of health services and systems.  Great topic to share. We’re proud to say they heard it from PNASD.

PNASD officers and student members

Dr Rosalinda Milla, Dean College of Health and Sciences, United States University spoke on Globalization: Threats and Opportunities. She defined globalization as an increase cross border flow of goods, services money, people, information, technology and culture. It encompasses economic, social,  and political aspects which has its own positive and negative effects. Globalization is a policy.

Erlinda Mascardo President-Elect and Dr. Rosalinda Milla

Dr Renee Mcleod, Director of Nursing at United States University was the next speaker. Her presentation focused on the Nursing Education Plan White Paper and its recommendations for California. She mentioned the five areas of recommendation: 1) advancing education 2) preparing nurses for the future 3) academic practice partnership 4) faculty development 5) transition to practice. Each of these recommendations included several strategies on how to meet them. Powerful information indeed.

Ms Zahra Nowbahari, Faculty from Brightwood College, presented the topic on Promoting Safety and Quality as Clients Transition Across the Continuum of Life Care Processes. She summarized the three most important tools to use such as 1) Optimistic transition to improve hospital to nursing facility transfer 2) ISBARR communication 3) Casper Report which include facility level quality measures

Lt Col Marissa Marquez US Air Force Reserve Special Medical Group presented an amazing video of the medical operations in the battle field, soldiers in action and the challenges they all face for our country. She spoke of the Pacific Angel team where she’s involved in and how their medical operations are implemented in each of the local communities in the Philippines. Her group worked side by side with local physicians, presented educational materials and held patient teaching classes for the locals. Lt Col Marquez also spoke of her extensive travels abroad to partner with other organizations.


PNASD members with speaker Lt. Colonel Marissa Marquez

Mr Richard McGurn spoke about Integrative Medicine and its Role to Achieve Optimal Health and Well Being. He preceded his presentation with a meditation with the audience, discussed different integrative therapies and modalities. He demonstrated the use of acupuncture to the amusement and squirming from the audience as the needle was poked on Dr Ramira’s hand, the acupuncture victim.

And the last speaker Heidi Sarmiento, an expert in intuitive nutrition, and self-defense got everyone excited and engaged. Great suggestions for choosing the right food without extreme dieting. The highlight of her presentation was the demonstration of kick boxing as a form of exercise. Several members of the audience were engaged in the exercise from kickboxing, showing some of their awkward moves of boxing to a more polished way to self-defense. What a great way to end the seminar!

PNASD once again put together a great seminar, highlighting how partnership can be achieved through working together as a TEAM. It was a success because of the concerted efforts of our President Vivian Sanderlin and the Education Committee Chairman Erlinda Mascardo. Our big thank you to all the members of the planning committee who judiciously invested their time and energy to make this occasion a great success. Your ardent contribution will never be unnoticed.

Our actions during the seminar spoke a thousand words of what is PNASD all about. As a quote to share “Teamwork divides the tasks and multiplies the success”… Unknown.
