ZOOLOGY FOR NURSING AND HEALTHCARE
I co-authored a lecture notes book on zoology for nursing and healthcare students. The lecture notes was simple as it was designed to facilitate the learning process of the concepts relative to basic chemistry of living cells, tissues, organs, systems, and organism. The lecture notes were coupled to the laboratory manual which I also co-authored and with similar organization of the presentation of lessons for learning the concepts. Understanding these concepts are a must to healthcare students because with it they will appreciate better what goes on an organism’s body especially humans and what may go wrong later. Nonetheless, the recent changes in the curriculum which trimmed down the course to 3 units of biology apparently offer the students insufficient hands-on knowledge making them less competitive graduates.
