Edmund J. Y. Pajarillo is Associate Professor, Department of Graduate Studies in Nursing, College of Nursing and Public Health, Adelphi University, NY.
Throughout his career, Dr. Pajarillo’s focus has always been on the tripartite interrelationships of leadership, mentoring, and nursing informatics; collectively informing his research, practice, teaching, and service.
