Four members of the Beta Nu Delta Nursing Society have played significant roles in the recently concluded 10th National Nursing Research Conference held on November 28-30, 2017 at Villa Caceres, Naga City, Philippines. 

Dr Cindy Leigh of the Australian Catholic University and Nursing for Humanity served as poster judge and plenary speaker during the event while Dr. Rudolf Martinez of San Beda College as an expert judge in the qualitative research stream. 

Dr Jun Leabres of Wesleyan University of the Philippines was on hand to present his research work. 

On the other hand, Dr. Michael Dino of Our Lady of Fatima University did a wonderful handiwork in the lead up to the national confab. He was responsible in the call for abstracts and videos . He did a number teaser trailers which made the event more interesting to the participants and guests. 

Mike's frequent exposure to various academic and professional events in the country and abroad have proven to be valuable asset to the Philippine Nursing Research Society's major events.

These BNDees were serving as role models during the national event. Psychologically, they were highly important for young nurses and student. They helped in guiding them through their professional lives and in turn, becoming effective professional connections.

Back on 2008 at the inaugural event of the research conference in General Santos City, the Society played a significant role with her young members serving as conference staff members. It was an amazing experience for our members who at that time were fresh from obtaining their professional nursing licenses.


They had the opportunity to direct traffic at plenaries and special events; assisted with exhibitor check-in at registration;  worked registration area to hand out materials and totebags; provided local information and conference directions, and worked as monitor for sessions, handing out and collecting session evaluations.

They also have the opportunity to meet the national nursing leaders such as Dr. Carmencita Abaquin (PRC BON Chairperson) and Dean Grace Lacanaria (now the National President of ADPCN) and Gov. Ruthelma Tingda (now the National President of PNA)
