Dean’s Message
Aloha.	As	I	move	into	my	second	year	as	dean	of	The	School	of	Nursing	and	Dental	
Hygiene	(SONDH)	at	the	University	of	Hawai‘i	at	Mānoa,	I	continue	to	be	inspired	by	
the	pride,	vitality	and	determination	of	our	faculty,	students	and	staff.	There	is	an	
excitement	in	the	air,	not	just	due	to	the	changes	that	are	occurring	in	our	school,	but	
also	as	a	result	of	the	expanding	roles	nurses	and	dental	hygienists	are	taking	in	the	
evolution	of	healthcare.

As	a	school,	the	SONDH	is	aggressively	proactive.	By	forging	stronger	bonds	with	our	
medical	counterparts,	we	are	working	to	address	critical	health	issues	facing	our	state.	
Among	these	is	the	acute	shortage	of	nurses	as	the	Baby	Boomer	generation	moves	into	
retirement,	a	situation	which	is	further	exacerbated	by	the	aging	of	Hawai‘i’s	nursing	
workforce.	The	earthquake	of	2006,	the	litany	of	world-wide	natural	disasters	and	the	
impending	threat	of	emerging	diseases	also	serve	as	reminders	that	Hawai‘i’s	healthcare	
professionals	must	be	forever	vigilant.	And	as	the	SONDH	looks	to	the	future,	we	cannot	
ignore	Hawai‘i’s	at-risk,	under-served	and	under	represented	populations	who	need	our	help	right	now.	

In	this	report,	you’ll	hear	how	faculty	and	students	at	the	SONDH	are	leading	the	way	by	initiating	research	that	addresses	the	
underlying	cause	of	poor	outcomes	and	improving	long-term	health	for	entire	populations.	Additionally,	they	are	creating	
innovative	partnerships	that	enable	the	SONDH	to	provide	our	students	with	relevant	hands-on	opportunities	while	allowing	us	
to	fine-tune	our	curriculum	to	meet	the	current	and	anticipated	needs	of	Hawai‘i’s	dental,	medical,	educational	and	public	
health	communities.	

On	the	educational	forefront,	the	SONDH	is	leading	the	way	with	simulation	technology	in	the	classroom,	online	and	
accelerated	degree	programs,	and	a	leadership	track	that	provides	joint	nursing	and	business	degrees.	Throughout	this	
report,	you’ll	also	discover	how	we	are	turning	our	unique	location	and	multi-cultural	student	and	patient	base	into	
opportunities	to	improve	lives	in	the	islands	and	throughout	the	Pacific	Rim.

Adding	to	our	school’s	energy	was	our	Fabulous	50	event	honoring	50	of	the	state’s	top	nurses.	Also	recognized	at	the	
event	were	four	proud	members	of	our	class	of	’56.	They	were	the	first	graduates	to	receive	4-year	bachelor	degrees	in	
nursing	and	paved	the	way	for	the	talented	nursing	and	dental	hygiene	professionals	who	are	following	in	their	footsteps.

At	the	SONDH,	we	are	not	content	to	sit	back	and	wait	for	the	future.	We	are	meeting	it	head-on	by	leading	the	way	in	the	
classroom	and	out	in	the	field.	We	invite	you	to	join	us	as	we	continue	our	quest	to	become	one	of	the	top	20	nursing	
schools	in	the	nation—a	school	where	the	world’s	premier	faculty	will	be	drawn	and	whose	graduates	are	among	the	most	
coveted	in	Hawai‘i	and	beyond.

Learning at the speed of life
    the soNDH leads the way with accelerated and online programs

The	SONDH,	like	its	mainland	counterparts,	is	responding	to	the	acute	nationwide	nursing	shortage	with	rigorous	fast-track	
degree	programs.	This	innovative	approach	propels	qualified	graduates	into	the	field	in	less	time	than	needed	for	a	
traditional	undergraduate	degree.	Designed	for	second-degree,	second-career	and	graduate	students,	fast	track	programs	
fulfill	employer	requests	for	mature,	experienced	nurses	prepared	for	leadership	roles.

Accelerated Nursing Program and Master’s entry Program in Nursing
Piloted	in	2004,	the	Accelerated	Bachelor’s	Degree	program	enables	students	with	a	prior	bachelor’s	degree	in	any	field	to	
complete	their	BS	in	nursing	in	just	eighteen	months.	It	is	designed	for	individuals	who	desire	a	“fast	track”	program	to	
launch	them	into	a	new	career	in	professional	nursing.	

In	2006,	the	program	admitted	24	students,	ranging	in	age	from	23-37.	While	most	students	held	bachelor	degrees,	several	
came	with	master’s	degrees	in	public	health,	psychology	and	business	administration.	Our	accelerated	students	are	
focused	and	highly	motivated.	In	fact,	the	present	class	scored	87%	on	the	National	League	for	Nursing	achievement	tests	
in	health	assessment,	well	above	the	national	average	of	50%.	They	are	also	a	diverse	group:	the	present	class	includes	3	
male	and	21	female	students;	4	students	of	Hawaiian	ancestry,	and	3	of	Native	American	heritage.	

Building	on	successful	models	across	the	nation,	and	in	response	to	the	demand	by	employers	and	students	for	a	master’s	
level	fast	track	program,	the	SONDH	is	revising	the	accelerated	effort	to	create	a	Master’s	entry	Program	in	Nursing	(MePN)	
program.	This	move	will	enable	the	SONDH	to	streamline	the	core	requirement	process	to	better	accommodate	students	
pursuing	nursing	as	their	second	degree.	Simultaneously,	the	MePN	will	increase	efficiency	in	the	bachelor’s	program	by	
reducing	the	number	of	master’s	candidates	in	undergraduate	courses.	By	evolving	its	curriculum,	the	SONDH	will	address	
the	immediate	demand	from	employers	and	prepare	nurses	for	education,	leadership	and	specialty	practice.

Joint Ms Nursing/Master’s in Business Administration
In	a	move	to	address	the	shortage	of	nurses	in	leadership	positions	the	SONDH,	in	conjunction	with	the	Shidler	College	of	
Business	at	the	University	of	Hawai‘i,	offers	a	joint	degree	in	nursing	and	business	administration.	The	degree	includes	
preparation	in	management,	finance	and	planning	to	provide	nurses	with	business	skills	for	positions	in	mid-level	and	
senior	leadership	positions.

online PhD in Nursing
The	online	doctoral	degree	breaks	new	ground	for	the	university.	Innovative	quality	programming	increases	access	for	
students	throughout	Hawai‘i.	The	PhD	program	prepares	nurses	to	conduct	clinical	scholarship	and	to	teach	in	nursing	
education	programs,	especially	those	with	minority	student	populations.	The	courses	use	the	Internet,	email,	list-serves	
and	other	web-based	technologies.	In	addition,	students	participate	in	on-campus	meetings	throughout	the	course	of	the	
program	to	foster	their	learning	in	an	academic	and	scholarly	community.

                                                                	   School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene

                       The first thing you learn as a health care provider is
                     to assess the situation—to take in the environment, the
                              patient, the details that can save a life.

Practice makes perfect
    simulation technology takes real life situations into the classroom

The	SONDH	is	countering	the	nursing	shortage	by	preparing	graduates	
to	literally	hit	the	ground	running.	In	the	Simulation	Laboratory,	two	
computerized	mannequins,	SimMan™	and	SimBaby,™	prompt	nursing	
students	to	treat	a	variety	of	acute	care	situations	without	real	world	
consequences.	As	the	mannequins	talk,	cry,	experience	difficulty	
breathing,	exhibit	erratic	pulse	and	heart	rates,	make	bowel	sounds	and	
show	lip	cyanosis,	the	students	respond	by	clearing	obstructed	airways,	
administering	IVs,	taking	blood	pressure	readings	and	inserting	
nasogastric	tubes.	each	session	is	carefully	monitored	through	a	one-
way	mirror	by	instructor	Lorrie	Wong,	RN,	MSN.	At	the	close	of	the	
session,	she	will	facilitate	an	interactive	debriefing	reviewing	the	
scenario	with	the	students.	

By	the	time	SONDH	students	become	registered	nurses,	they	will	have	
honed	their	clinical,	technical	and	decision-making	skills	in	preparation	for	
clinical	practice.

The	goal	is	for	the	SONDH’s	Health	Workforce	Simulation	Resource	
Laboratory	to	be	networked	to	the	five	other	University	of	Hawai‘i	nursing	
programs	across	O‘ahu,	the	Big	Island,	Maui	and	kaua‘i	for	interdisciplinary	
training	to	improve	communication,	outcomes,	and	patient	safety.

Community nursing students visit Kalaupapa

From	about	1866	to	1969,	Hansen	Disease	(also	called	leprosy)	victims	were	banished	to	the	remote	kalaupapa	Peninsula	on	
the	island	of	Moloka‘i.	Recognizing	the	potentially	profound	effort	of	such	a	visit,	instructor	Nancy	McGuckin	organized	
trips	to	kalaupapa	for	students	and	faculty.

In	2006,	Dean	Mary	Boland	accompanied	kris	Qureshi,	RN,	DNSc,	Stephanie	Marshall,	RN,	MS	and	a	group	of	fifth	
semester	nursing	students	to	visit	kalaupapa,	Moloka‘i.	In	the	early	years	of	HIV/AIDS	work,	nurses	on	the	front	lines	
found	lessons	in	the	history	of	social	response	to	infectious	disease	while	dealing	with	issues	of	stigma	for	care

    innovative cultural program at soNDH makes history

In	Hawai‘i,	diversity	is	a	way	of	life.	And	yet,	despite	the	beautiful	mix	of	peoples,	Native	Hawaiians	of	the	indigenous	
culture,	are	sorely	underrepresented	in	healthcare	professions.	Although	Hawaiians	make	up	about	25%	of	the	state’s	
population,	they	represent	only	5%	of	Hawai‘i’s	nursing	professionals.	The	SONDH	is	correcting	that	disparity	by	supporting	
an	innovative	program	called	‘Ike	AO	PONO,	directed	by	Nalani	Minton,	MA.

Nalani	explains	the	cultural	meaning	of	its	mission	as	reflected	in	the	name	she	gave	the	program:	‘iKe	is	a	shared	vision	
held	and	nurtured	by	all;	Ao	is	the	everlasting	quality	of	continuation;	and	PoNo	is	harmony	in	life	sustained	by	integrity:		
right	relationship,	right	intention	and	right	action.	Together,	these	concepts	present	the	collective	vision	of	lasting	health	
and	wellness	for	the	whole	community.	

The	SONDH	is	committed	to	creating	positive	change	through	‘Ike	AO	PONO,	a	support	and	cultural	enrichment	program	
for	Native	Hawaiian	and	Pacific	Island	nursing	students.	Its	primary	purposes	are:	1)	to	improve	the	health	of	Native	
Hawaiian	and	Pacific	Island	peoples	through	culturally	sensitive	care;	2)	to	increase	the	number	of	Native	Hawaiian	and	
Pacific	Island	health	professionals;	and	3)	to	provide	inspiration	to	younger	generations	of	Native	Hawaiians	and	Pacific	
Islanders	in	the	form	of	positive	role	models.	

Recent	statistics	show	that	compared	to	the	U.S.	mainland,	Native	Hawaiians	(in	Hawai‘i)	have	a	greater	rate	of	cancer,	a	
higher	rate	of	diabetes	and	obesity,	a	higher	rate	of	heart	disease	and	an	alarming	higher	rate	of	early	mortality.	Samoan	
and	Pacific	Islanders	are	also	at	high	risk	for	these	diseases,	and	32%	of	Samoan	household	incomes	in	Hawai‘i	are	below	
the	poverty	level.	All	face	barriers	to	higher	education,	positive	health	and	socioeconomic	outcomes.

‘Ike	AO	PONO	helps	Native	Hawaiian	and	Pacific	Island	students	apply	to,	succeed	in	and	graduate	from	the	SONDH.	While	
 many	of	these	students	come	from	at-risk	and	under-served	communities,	they	are	inspired	and	encouraged	to	succeed	
 through	a	unique	support	base,	consisting	of	academic	counseling,	a	strong	student	‘ohana	(family),	scholarships,	financial	
 aid,	health	conferences	and	professional	opportunities.	

At	the	core	of	the	program	is	‘Ike	AO	PONO’s	uniquely	Hawaiian	approach	to	wellnesss.	Through	community	service,	students	
spend	time	tending	the	lo‘i	(taro	patches),	visiting	sacred	sites	and	reconnecting	with	their	past.	Through	these	experiences,	
students	develop	a	cultural	understanding	of	health	that	enriches	their	peers,	faculty,	the	healthcare	community	and	the	
Native	Hawaiian	community	at	large.

Implementing change from the inside out
      using cultural value based research to revamp healthcare in Hawai‘i

The	SONDH	is	pursuing	research	that	addresses	the	needs	of	Hawai‘i’s	diverse	population	as	well	as	those	of	the	Pacific	
Basin	and	Asia.	Hawai‘i’s	multi-cultural	setting	affords	the	SONDH	a	unique	opportunity	to	conduct	culturally	relevant

diabetes	management	and	childhood	immunizations—are	seen	as	critical	steps	in	improving	the	health	of	Hawai‘i’s	most	
at-risk	populations.	By	transforming	clinical	observations	to	targeted	hypothesis	and	data	proven	solutions,	the	SONDH’s

Advancing oral care in the Islands
      the Department of Dental Hygiene

In	2006,	the	Department	of	Dental	Hygiene	enrolled	25	new	students	for	a	total	student	count	of	67.	The	dental	hygiene	
program	at	University	of	Hawai‘i	at	Mānoa	is	the	only	baccalaureate	degree	in	the	islands.	It	offers	the	educational	
preparation	required	by	dental	hygienists	to	provide	oral	health	care	and	education	to	the	people	of	Hawai‘i,	the	
continental	U.S.	and	the	Pacific-Asia	region.	

In	a	well-equipped	clinical	setting,	students	receive	hands-on	experience	and	supervised	patient	care	experiences	to	
prepare	them	for	real	world	careers.	The	program	also	includes	courses	in	liberal	arts	and	basic	sciences.

As	with	their	nursing	counterparts,	dental	hygienists	are	especially	needed	in	communities	with	at-risk,	under	represented	
and	under-served	populations,	primarily	Native	Hawaiian	and	Pacific	Island	populations.	To	this	end,	the	SONDH	and	
Department	of	Dental	Hygiene	are	committed	to	the	reduction	of	health	disparities	among	all	the	people	of	Hawai‘i.	

Students	completing	the	bachelor’s	of	science	in	dental	hygiene	qualify	for	admission	to	the	national	and	state	board	
dental	hygiene	examinations	for	licensure	to	practice	dental	hygiene	in	private,	public	health	and	other	dental	hygiene	
settings.	It	offers	professional	training	to	broaden	and	deepen	knowledge	and	skills,	as	well	as	providing	a	foundation	for	
personal	and	professional	development	and	opportunities	for	admission	to	graduate	work.

strategic	effort	to	guide	future	dental	hygiene	education	within	the	School	of	Nursing	and	Dental	Hygiene.	The	strategic	
planning	process	included	preparation	of	a	comprehensive	White	Paper	describing	the	national	and	local	context	for	
dental	hygiene	education,	surveys	of	Hawai‘i’s	dentists	and	dental	hygienists	to	assess	workforce	supply	and	demand;	and	
a	conference	of	stakeholders	with	expert	presentations	followed	by	group	interactive	brainstorming	and	plan	building.

The	effort	provided	the	School	and	Department	with	discipline-specific	strategies	to	support	the	School’s	mission	for

The Fabulous 50
      Honoring Hawai‘i’s brightest stars

In	2006,	in	celebration	of	50	years	of	achievement,	the	SONDH	paid	tribute	to	50	nurses	from	throughout	the	state	who	
represent	the	best	of	nursing	in	Hawai‘i.	The	service	and	dedication	of	these	“Fabulous	50”	brought	honor	to	the	nursing	
profession,	advancements	in	healthcare,	and	extended	the	spirit	of	aloha	to	countless	patients	and	families	in	our	community.	

Also	honored	were	four	members	of	the	Class	of	’56,	the	remarkable	young	women	who	were	the	start	of	a	new	direc-
tion	in	nursing	as	the	first	graduates	from	a	beginning	nursing	baccalaureate	program	in	Hawai‘i.	They	went	on	to	rich	
careers	in	healthcare,	administration	and	research,	and	set	the	stage	for	the	evolution	of	one	of	the	leading	healthcare	
institutions	in	the	state:	the	University	of	Hawai‘i	School	of	Nursing	and	Dental	Hygiene.	

Starting	with	that	first	graduation	ceremony	in	1956,	the	SONDH	at	UH	Mānoa	has	awarded	nearly	3,000	bachelor’s	
degrees,	750	master’s	degrees,	and	18	doctorates	in	nursing.	Our	students	represent	the	rich	cultural	and	ethnic	tapestry	
that	defines	Hawai‘i:	their	ancestry	is	Hawaiian,	Pacific	Islander,	Filipino,	Japanese,	Chinese	and	european,	among	others.	
A	full	25%	percent	of	our	students	are	male,	far	exceeding	the	national	average	of	8%.	Most	graduates	stay	in	Hawai‘i	but	
many	go	on	to	careers	on	the	mainland	and	abroad.

                                      exchanging ideas through the office of international Affairs

                           As	the	crossroads	of	the	Pacific,	Hawai‘i	has	a	special	role	to	play	in	the	sharing	of	knowledge	and	information.	That	mission	
                           is	even	more	important	in	the	fields	of	healthcare	and	public	health	as	our	region	faces	new	health	challenges.	What’s	
                           more,	the	health	issues	of	one	nation	can	quickly	become	the	concern	of	a	whole	region.	

                           The	Office	of	International	Affairs	of	SONDH	has	made	a	strong	commitment	to	increasing	the	exchange	of	ideas	with	other	
                           institutions.	In	2005-2006,	SONDH	hosted	groups	from	all	over	Asia	including	nursing	schools,	hospital	groups	and	
                           associations	from	Japan,	China,	korea	and	Thailand.	Over	30	institutions	were	represented,	including	Chiang	Mai	University,	
                           Ge	Medical	Systems	China,	kochi	Medical	School,	Okinawa	Prefecture	College	of	Nursing,	Prince	of	Songkla	University,	and	
                           Tokyo	Women’s	Medical	University.

                           In	dental	hygiene,	SONDH	has	relationships	with	two	schools	in	Japan:	Sanyo	Shikaeisei	Senmon	and	Sendai	Dental	
                           Hygiene	Program.	Our	10-year	relationship	with	the	Sendai	Program	provides	for	an	extraordinary	learning	experience	for	
                           approximately	50	students	and	faculty	members.

The whole is greater than the sum of the parts
    Addressing Hawai‘i’s health challenges through strategic partnerships

Healthcare	is	a	team	sport.	When	it	comes	to	the	challenges	facing	our	number	one	patient,	the	State	of	Hawai‘i,	no	single	
organization	can	do	it	alone.	At	SONDH,	we	are	fortunate	to	live	in	a	community	where	organizations	from	all	branches	of	
healthcare	understand	and	appreciate	the	value	of	teamwork.	This	allows	SONDH	students	to	learn	in	settings	along	the	
continuum	of	care.	

Over	the	years,	we	have	created	community	partnerships	with	Hawai‘i’s	leading	hospitals,	dental	care	providers,	public	
health	departments,	rehabilitation	and	long-term	care	facilities.	Within	the	University	of	Hawai‘i,	partnerships	with	John	A.	
Burns	School	of	Medicine	(JABSOM),	Department	of	Public	Health,	Shidler	College	of	Business,	and	the	Richardson	School	
of	Law	enrich	the	school	with	research	opportunities,	on-site	training,	access	to	new	technologies,	skill	development,	
leadership	direction	and	development.	In	return,	the	SONDH	is	graduating	top-notch	nurses	and	dental	hygienists—
professionals	who	strengthen	their	employers	by	providing	quality,	committed	and	compassionate	care.	

The	Queen’s	Medical	Center	(QMC)	continues	to	be	a	strong	supporter	of	the	SONDH	and	in	2006	provided	$150,000	in	
education	awards	for	nine	accelerated	nursing	students,	supported	the	‘Ike	Ao	Pono	program,	and	funded	a	research	
partnership	between	QMC	and	the	SONDH.	

The	SONDH	has	also	found	an	extraordinary	partner	in	the	Hawai‘i	Health	Systems	Corporation.	Thanks	to	their	efforts,	
SONDH	graduate	students	will	be	participating	in	clinical	rotations	with	the	JABSOM	family	medicine	residents.	

Additionally,	the	SONDH	maintains	relationships	with	key	dental	care	providers	and	dental	healthcare	organizations,	
offering	our	students	and	faculty	resources	and	opportunities	that	would	otherwise	be	unavailable.	

                                                                	   School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene                      1
Honor Roll of Donors
      Fiscal year 2006

The	School	of	Nursing	and	Dental	Hygiene	received	more	than	$175,000	in	private	gifts	from	July	2005	to	June	2006	
through	the	University	of	Hawai‘i	Foundation,	the	non-profit	fundraising	organization	of	the	University.	We	are	grateful	to	
the	individuals,	corporations,	foundations,	alumni,	other	organizations,	and	those	who	wish	to	remain	anonymous	for	their	
direct	gifts,	wills,	charitable	gift	annuities,	and	scholarships.	These	funds	provide	important	support	for	the	emerging	
needs	of	our	school.

Create a legacy
      scholarships and endowments

When	you	establish	a	scholarship	or	endowment,	you	join	a	distinguished	community	of	benefactors	who	make	it	possible	
for	deserving	students	to	attend	the	University	of	Hawai‘i	regardless	of	their	financial	circumstances.	

In	2006,	fifty-eight	students	pursuing	degrees	in	nursing	or	dental	hygiene	received	more	than	$200,000	in	scholarships	
from	donor	gifts	and	endowed	scholarships	to	the	School	of	Nursing	and	Dental	Hygiene	through	the	UH	Foundation.	

endowments	for	professorships,	programs	and	scholarships	create	perpetual	support	for	the	school.	They	enable	the	SONDH	
to	attract	and	retain	top	faculty,	establish	leading-edge	programs	and	make	it	possible	for	Hawai‘i’s	best	and	brightest	
students	to	study	at	the	UH	Mānoa.	The	Friendship	endowed	Scholarship	offers	support	for	both	students	and	faculty	to	
address	the	school’s	most	significant	needs.

To	learn	more	about	ways	to	support	the	School	of	Nursing,	contact	Anne	Marie	Rizzo,	Director	of	Development	and	
Alumni	Relations	or	visit	www.nursing.hawaii.edu.
