The Community Extension Services and Development (CESDEV) of the College of Nursing of the University of Cebu-Banilad joined the blood-letting activity spearheaded by ABS-CBN and its AM Station DYAB Abante Bisaya, conducted by the Regional Blood Coordinating Council (RBCC) at the Mandaue City Hall Plaza in Mandaue City.

The activity was participated by two sections of third year student nurses namely BSN 2Z and BSN 2EE. The blood letting started at around 7AM with BSN 2Z student nurses facilitating. At around noontime, the activity was properly endorsed and BSN 2EE student nurses took over.

Welcome to RBCC Mass Blood Donation ...

The student nurses took the vital signs of possible blood donors ...

They even took blood pressures of ABS-CBN Regional Network stars ...

Student nurses also conducted interviews to gather baseline data ...

They also took weights ...

And provided assistance not only to the medical technologists but more importantly, they provided comfort and care to the blood donors during the bleeding.

These student nurses assisted the medical technologist in the blood typing. They were very happy to have applied their knowledge about blood types and blood typing procedure.

Active student nurses had to go on "foot patrol" to do blood pressure-taking in the peripheries as well as information campaign on blood donation so they can convince more people to donate blood.

Convinced that donating blood is good for their health aside from the benefits of free blood typing, blood screening, and others, these student nurses practiced what they preached. They willingly donated their blood.

Even Mr. Darwin Villarante, class adviser of BSN 2Z, also donated his blood ... his first time. He was there to accompany his students but ended up donating blood.

Mr. Villarante was interviewed over DYAB Abante Bisaya, the AM radio station of ABS-CBN (Cebu)

The student nurses who were also blood donors in the activity proudly showed their RBCC cards which assures them of being prioritized in cases they need blood.
