DHSc student recognized in NurseWeekPosted: August 25, 2010
Glenn Pascual, DHSc ’11, was recently named as a finalist for NurseWeek’s 2010 Excellence Awards under the management category. NurseWeek’s Nursing Excellence Awards program recognizes the extraordinary contributions of California and Mountain West nurses.
Pascual, department administrator, 4 west telemetry/observation, Kaiser Permanente at Woodland Hills Medical Center, located in California, was hired in 2008 to manage and create what was then an empty unit. After being open for a month, the unit was nominated for the Everyday Heroes award. The unit has since been number one in patient satisfaction surveys.
“I’m pleased about these accolades. I have created a name in patient service and a system for better healthcare delivery,” says Pascual. “The DHSc program has given me a better perspective of healthcare concepts, particularly with health policy-making and research utilization. My gratitude to ATSU!”
Over the past two years Pascual has received eight state awards and two national awards in patient service and satisfaction.
