Message of the New PRBON Chairperson Dr. Glenda S. Arquiza

As I begin as Chairperson of the Professional Regulatory Board of Nursing, my heart is full of gratitude for the opportunity given to me to continue to serve the nursing profession. Let us begin by acknowledging our need for one another, the interdependence that binds our hearts and minds for a common goal-excellence in nursing practice. In the words of the Preacher “A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart. ” Let us begin by clearly defining our respective roles and clarifying our expectations. To paraphrase the words of a great American President, John F. Kennedy: ” Ask not what the Professional Regulatory Board of Nursing can do for you. Ask what you can do for the profession.” Together let us journey to EXCELLENCE through professionalism, sincerity and integrity. Let us begin now!
