May 7 is Filipino Nursing Diaspora Day
The Filipino Nursing Diaspora Network has initiated the idea of Filipino Nursing Diaspora Day. This is celebrated on 7 May 2020 coinciding with the celebration of 2020 Year of Nurse and Midwife.
The aim is to raise awareness about the Filipino nurses' positive role and their contributions to health care as well as to celebrate their achievements.
The Filipino Nursing Diaspora Day will be integrated with the International Nurses Week celebrations which will be celebrated between 6 May and 12 May.
Our 4th webinar series is slated on 22 February 2020 (10AM Manila time) features Rhea Faye Felicilda, RN, EdD, Adjunct Faculty, Missouri State University & American Sentinel University.
