College of Nursing and Public Health
Adelphi University
Garden City, NY

Dr. Pajarillo taught as an adjunct faculty in different schools in New York, even while pursuing his doctoral degree. He began as a full time faculty while concurrently serving as Associate Dean for Faculty Services before his current role at Adelphi University. He has practiced clinical nursing for over 25 years in various settings including, but not limited to, trauma, comprehensive psychiatric emergency, HIV and AIDS, gerontology, home care, and various specializations in psychiatry (adolescent, children, eating disorders, dual diagnosis and mobile crisis). Administratively, he had been nurse manager, transplant and teaching coordinator, supervisor, director, compliance officer, deputy executive director and chief nurse executive.

He obtained his baccalaureate in nursing and Master in Public Administration at the State University of the Philippines in Manila; Master of Science in Nursing Informatics at Excelsior College, and his PhD at Long Island University, both in NY. He has held certifications in Healthcare Quality, Nurse Executive, Advanced, Psychiatric and Mental Health and Nursing Informatics.

The focus of his scholarship is on nursing informatics. He developed a conceptual framework on nursing information behavior, with elements and processes involved in the structure. This is extremely useful in educating nurses and students how to navigate the intricacies and large volume of data and information in order to render safe and quality patient care. Corollary to this framework are the technological tools, programs and applications that facilitate the work of nurses, and the re-envisioning of nursing and the role of nurses as these evolve with the rapid deluge of patient care technologies. He has published and presented his research in national and international journals and conferences, respectively.

Dr. Pajarillo was the inaugural Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Nursing Practice Applications and Reviews of Research (JNPARR) when he transformed this from a trade magazine into a peer-reviewed, scholarly journal in 2013, beginning with Volumes 3 and 4. To date, JNPARR continues to carry the vision, format and rigor that Dr. Pajarillo envisioned the journal to be. It is now on its 10th volume.

He is a Fellow of the National League for Nursing, Academy of Nursing Education; the New York Academy of Medicine; the Royal Society of Medicine; and the Viret Faculty Development Program.

Amanda S. Brown, PhD, RN, CNL
Associate Editor
Assistant Professor
College of Nursing
Upstate Medical University Hospital
Syracuse, NY

A highly motivated nurse, Dr. Amanda Brown always has a passion for clinical research to improve patient outcomes and nursing satisfaction. Her unique experiences as a clinical nurse leader (CNL) and registered nurse scientist afforded her the opportunity to experience first-hand the gaps in the understanding of clinical research at the bedside from the nurses’ perspectives. It became evident to her that to empower frontline staff to implement evidence-based practice and research, the nurses need to have a clear understanding of the different research and evidence-based paradigms and methods available. Her drive to improve patient care and outcomes through research and evidence-based practice motivated her transition to becoming more involved in nursing education. Amanda adapts curricula that offer clarity, experiential and problem-based learning, while also being hands-on, meaningful, and purposeful to the nurse. She considers these essential in bridging the gap between knowledge and actual nursing practice.
