Nineteen years ago the RENAL NURSES ASSOCIATION OF THE PHILIPPINES (RENAP) was born out of a commitment to bring the best in Renal Care. The organization was envisioned to developed young nurses to become Nursing Leaders and offer updates, seminars and convention to all nurses interested in the field of Nephrology.
The Story of the Renal Nurses Association of the Philippines is a story worth telling and well worth knowing. It is a tale of struggle and triumph against large odds. It is tale of how individuals committed to an idea gave birth to an organization that has survived the ravages of time, political changes and limited funding. RENAP is a living monument to what we, Filipino Renal Nurses can achieve, when we allow our best selves to shine through.
