UH Manoa Chancellor’s Citation for Meritorious Teaching 2002-2006 Award Recipients
Manoa’s Meritorious Teachers
Department of Nursing
Lorrie Wong is an instructor in the Department of Nursing. Educating nurses to meet the challenges health care professionals face in the 21st century is a daunting task.
To be a competent nurse, Wong believes that students must not only acquire a solid scientific knowledge base, technical skills and critical judgment, but they must also develop a personal philosophy for lifelong learning and compassionate care.
She spends many hours researching and updating her lecture material to keep abreast with the rapidly increasing advancements in healthcare. Innovation and creativity are fundamental to keeping students engaged in learning. Her classes are offered as Web-enhanced courses and she introduced a high fidelity human simulator (SimMan) into her curriculum. Wong feels that educating future nursing professionals is a privilege.
