Manoa’s Meritorious Teachers
School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene
An assistant professor of nursing, Janet Uyehara nurtures her students in the clinical setting as well as in the classroom.
Over the past 30 years, Uyehara has taught didactic and clinical courses in the area of obstetrics and newborn care. Her lectures are dynamic and include personal anecdotes from her clinical experience to help students understand the material presented. She was influential in developing an innovative teaching opportunity, the Childbearing Teaching Project, where students study and gather information on pregnant clients.
A student wrote that Uyehara provided strong academic and clinical knowledge. She also stressed the importance of sensitivity and compassion, which are essential in the nursing profession.
