I appreciate the dedication, passion and service of every nurse. I recognize their contribution to the global healthcare. I respect man’s dignity and autonomy toward the right to self-direction and self-preservation. I believe and support the individual and group efforts of nurses towards holistic life. I value all nurses and recognize the need to meet their basic needs: physical, spiritual, mental, social and financial so they can be freed of burden to unselfishly give service to the community.

A Nurse Leader, Mentor, and Health Advocate
Nursing is a universal profession that is not bound by race and cultural diversity. Caring is the expression of the nurses dedication, passion and service to humanity. I shall remain at the service of nurses and advocate health for all.
Antonio B. Jayoma, RN, MSPHN, MBA, CCRN
A Nurse Leader,Visionary, Mentor, Educator
Nursing is viewed as a passion to serve humanity for a common good. It is a good that is delivered in times of personal crises, illnesses, societal conflicts and at peace. Nurses are expected to deliver in the midst of diversities and challenges, and have known to conquer them all inorder to deliver great purposes such as promoting health and nursing the afflicted ones. I believe that nurses do need and help each other to reach their goals they set for themselves, and for the communities and societies they serve.
