The time has come for me to lead the journey to become the President of PNANJ, INC 2018 -2020. I stand before you to accept this role with excitement and enthusiasm as I lead this prestigious organization. I am grateful for the honor, confidence and trust that you have bestowed on me for the next two years.
I am privileged to have inherited this foundational bricks from my predecessors who are also our advisers. They continue to be with us on our journey to excellence. My sincere thanks to all our advisers, who have provided their generous contributions of personal, professional resources, the many gifts, talents and time rendered to this organization and the communities we serve including our own mainland, the Philippines. When I accepted my oath of office and accepted the responsibilities that go with it, I will also promise you that I will continue the same commitment that our past presidents have done before me which is to uphold the mission, vision, values and philosophy of this organization and PNAA our mother organization.
With the continued guidance of my respected colleagues and advisers, I am inspired to present to you my creation of my administration’s mantra “Nurses Innovate, Inspire and Advocate”
As Nurses, we need to be forward thinkers and always think of innovative ways of doing things. We need to inspire others as we get inspired by our colleagues. Lastly, as nurses, we need to advocate for our patients, their families/SO and for ourselves and the community.
To the new executive board members and cabinet members of 2018-2020, thank you for being ready to take this journey with me for the next two years. We are all in this together.
Henry Ford once said, “Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is in progress and working together is success.” With this in mind I am looking forward to serve you as your new president.
I will do my very best as we have to work together and continue to make a compelling history, longevity and journey to success.
God bless PNANJ and PNAA,
Rosemarie D. Rosales, DNP, MPA, RN, CCRN, CPHQ
President, PNANJ 2018 -2020
