Philosophy

Still Under Discussion

The written philosophy of the College of Allied Health Sciences is a necessary guide for the leaders in the department to face continuing as well as unexpected problems requiring decisions that are consistent and straight forward. The formulation and growth of philosophy that will guide the department of nursing will bring the Dean, level chairs, clinical instructors, staff and students to believe something or to achieve something together.

In a sense, a philosophy is as much like a diamond-it is three dimensional, with multitude of facets reflects one aspect of the total and represents something to which one can commit oneself and be able to live with day by day and decision to decision.

When the members of the has a good understanding of the philosophy of the department, hidden uncertainties regarding the value of ones goals and actions are greatly reduced and thus the decision making process is enhanced. Thus formulation of the philosophy of the College of Allied Health Sciences is imperative.

ALESSANDRO G. VILLARIN (2009-81750) N-240 Nursing Administration 1 1st Semester, AY 2010-2011 Goals and Objectives Objectives: There are three specific objectives of the CAHS. However the objectives 1. To inculcate the ethics of a health care professional. 2. To put quality service to mankind as the priority in the profession. The absence of the CAHS written goals does not provide the organization 3. To develop among the students precision, accuracy and professional honesty with the blueprint that determines the course of action and aids in preparing the future changes in the college. do not indicate the short term target and the measurable results.

This implies that there is a need for a written clearly defined goals and a review of the present objectives of the CAHS. Without Clearly Defined goals and objectives, the organization will have trouble coordinating activities and forecasting future events.

According to Baine and Griffin (2007), organizational goals serve four basic functions; they provide guidance and direction, facilitate planning, motivate and inspire employees and help organizations evaluate and control performance.

ALESSANDRO G. VILLARIN (2009-81750) N-240 Nursing Administration 1 1st Semester, AY 2010-2011 Structure of the organization The College of Allied Health Sciences organizational is structured using a hierarchy.

2. Do a SWOT Analysis. Assess the environment of your organization to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) Analysis Base on the Data gathered on the status of the College of Allied Health Sciences and the CHED Memorandum No. 14, Series of 2009 policies and Standards for Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Program, the following have been found using the SWOT Analysis. Strengths 1. The Northwestern University (Formerly Northwestern College) is the first educational institution north of La Union to offer Bachelor of Science in Nursing and still existing until this time. 2. Professionally qualified and committed Dean of the Allied Health Sciences. 3. One hundred percent (100%) of the faculty members of the Department of Nursing are on full-time status. 4.

Fast turnover of clinical instructors that affect faculty performance, thus prevent the CAHS from implementing strategies that achieve its mission. 2. The decreasing enrolment of the CAHS contributes to the decreasing budget of the college and caused inability to finance charges. 3. Under developed research culture is a concern. Faculty members cannot regularly come up with researches. 7

Opportunities for Online Education. 5. Open Partner industry linkages that will be utilized for the on the job training programs of students. 6.
