WCSI CCEP® Faculty
Clinical Professional Development Educator
Kino Anuddin is a Clinical Professional Development Educator at Ascension St. John Hospital in Detroit, MI. He is primarily involved in educational programs that support evidence-based practice, clinical competency, leadership development, patient and family experience, and holistic nursing. His clinical expertise is on the care and management of patients with chronic illness, kidney diseases, and organ transplantation.
Kino received his BSN degree from Ateneo de Zamboanga University (Philippines) and MSN with emphasis on Nursing Leadership and Education from Capella University (MN). He also maintains specialty board certifications in Nephrology and Holistic Nursing. Kino currently serves as executive board of the Philippine Nurses Association of Michigan. His interest in Caring Science and desire to evolve further as a Caritas Nurse was sparked after attending the International Caritas Consortium (2014) and learning about ongoing work around the world to transform caring in the nursing profession. The experience immediately brought back to his memory a prayer that he had as a new nurse–that he may find meaning and purpose as an instrument of healing. Kino realized he has found the practice that speaks true to his values, his passion, his way of being. This led him to join the Integrated Healing Arts Academy by the BirchTree Center for Healthcare Transformation, pursue board certification in holistic nursing, and complete the WCSI Caritas Coach Education Program. He has since then conducted several poster and speaking presentations on holistic nursing practice, transformational leadership, self-care & resilience, the Caritas ProcessesⓇ, mandala meditation, and mindfulness. He is a chapter author in the book, Caritas Coaching: A Journey Toward Transpersonal Caring for Informed Moral Action in Healthcare. His passion as an educator to advance nursing practice infused with the principles of holistic nursing and Unitary Caring Science has earned him the 2018 Nightingale Award for Excellence in Nursing Education from Oakland University (MI).
Kino’s social media bio describes him as a “healer, cat dad, amateur astronomer, and National Park enthusiast.”
