UH Manoa Chancellor’s Citation for Meritorious Teaching 2002-2006 Award Recipients
Manoa’s Meritorious Teachers
School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene
Dianne Ishida is an associate professor in the UH School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene. Ishida’s interest in Pacific and Asian cultures led her to pursue graduate study in anthropology after her nursing education. She used this expertise to teach a nursing in a multicultural milieu course.
Most recently, Ishida served as the course coordinator for complex nursing practice. She has also pioneered the use of preceptors in this capstone course, and transitioned the course to reflect current health trends/needs.
Of particular noteworthiness is her development of the cooperative education course that enables students to acquire supervised nursing experience in clinical facilities as paid employees. A colleague wrote, "I have found Ishida to be the consummate professional, modeling inspirational teaching and insightful leadership, continuously managing her own work and striving for excellence with humor, patience and persistence."
