Spotlight on Shey Antido, DNP, APRN, FNP-BC, FNP-C, CPAN
By Brent Davis
Dr. Shey Antido has been a professor in our School of Nursing since April 1 (no fooling). Like many of our faculty, she was attracted to AUHS because of our Christian values. These are values that she received from her family growing up in the Philippines. These are values that inform her work and that she is passing on to her three boys along with her very supportive husband. Along the way she received an excellent education and has earned numerous degrees and certifications including her doctorate in nursing practice.
Here is what she has to say about her interests:
I aspire to continue providing the best quality of education for all my students. I think that by far the greatest contribution to science has come from my years of health care experience. I am excited to enter the field of research, and I am hopeful that opportunities will arise, and I will work hard to be the best at all I do. I have been a consultant for Howard University HIV National Integration Project (H-NIP) that implemented the National HIV Curriculum (NHC) e-Learning Platform into training and education curricula NHC of the graduating FNP students. I am one of the lead collaborator/facilitators of the Philippine Nurses Association of Southern California, a nonprofit group that has partnered with the University of California Irvine (UCI) in their ongoing UCI Mind Ahead research that conducts a study on the increasing number of Filipinos who are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. The study will aim to reach out to this minority group to see how pharmacologic intervention can prevent them from developing Alzheimer’s disease. I think that my intense interest in conducting research and developing improvement projects to support the rising demand and concerns in the health care industry will make me more determined to pursue this endeavor.
Such determination demonstrates the values of AUHS, and is the reason for this month’s Spotlight on Dr. Shey Antido, Director of Clinical Affiliates for the MSN Program and SON faculty.
