The Philippine Nurses Association of Oregon and Washington's International Outreach Program has a history of helping to feed and care for people in far reaching places all over the globe.  It's a real pleasure to be able to help people in these far reaching places.


Please join PNAOW in congratulating Brittany Kaleiwahea, our 2018-19 recipient of the Jaime Lim and Dory Osilla-Lim Academic Scholarship!  Brittany is a second year nursing student at Seattle Central College.  She grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii and moved to Seattle seven years ago.  Brittany has volunteered at several institutions including Swedish Orthopedic Institute, as well as the emergency department at Harborview Medical Center.  Within her nursing program she serves as the secretary of Seattle Central’s Student Nurses Association and helps coordinate volunteer opportunities for all the students in the nursing program.  She also volunteers her time as a mentor to new students in the program.  Brittany has really enjoyed working in long term care during the first half of her program. She hopes to continue her interest with a career in geriatrics and focus on working in hospice or palliative care.
