Catanduanes State University (CSU) officials last week expressed elation that the College of Health Sciences (CHS) once again went over the national passing percentage in the recently released results of the Nurse Licensure Examination given by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) last June 3-4, 2018.

In a statement, CHS Dean Dr. Jocelyn Ll. Jordan said that the College got an overall performance rating of 84.38% as 27 of its 32 nursing graduates hurdled the exam, compared to the national passing rate of 43.82%.

She added that for first-timers, the College had an even higher 86.67& passing rate, with 26 passers out of the 30 Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) graduates who took the test.

Dr. Jordan thanked the university and the rest of the teaching staff for their continued support as the CHS endeavor again paid off with this latest accomplishment. .

CSU President Dr. Minerva I. Morales extended her appreciation to the College of Health Sciences, to the new Registered Nurses and to their parents as well for the achievement which will again form part of the University’s line of distinction this year.

The new Registered Nurses are: Roselle P. Abaquita, Dyna Karen L. Avila, Czarina Zeth R. Balane, Ernie Ann B. Cabalic, Leo Frank Elpedes, Jayson J. Estrada, Ma. Lezatte Z. Francisco, Shirra Mae O. Fernandez, Pamela Marie Galang, Nicole Joy S. Hilario, Haidee Ibarrientos, Jehan E. Isorena, Anne Geleene Manalo, Arielle Z. Marino, Roxy Deserine Olanka, Mark John V. Sarmiento, Remee Mariae M.

It may be recalled that three months ago, the CSU’s College of Health Sciences secured the top 25 ranking in the list of 49 best nursing schools in the Philippines as published in the Local Pulse School Rankings website covering the 514 schools offering the nursing degree nationwide.

Dean Jordan said the Local Pulse ranking for 2017 Best Philippine Schools to study Nursing was based on overall board exam performance, number of examinees, top performing examinees, accreditation status, and faculty-student ratio.

The Local Pulse released that the CSU-CHS got an overall score of 64.58 with 82.70% rate of students who passed, and 40 for those top examinees. The College, a Level-III accredited institution, gained 70 points for accreditation level. It also posted 75 points under its faculty-student ratio criterion.

The Local Pulse said that the rankings were based on the results of two licensure examinations on November and June 2017 plus other factors including level of accreditation and faculty-student ratio to find out which schools offering undergraduate programs in nursing have the most valuable degree programs to produce batches of examinees with high nursing licensure examination passing rates

The CHS has been consistently producing board topnotchers either in midwifery licensure or nursing board exams and garnering above-national percentage passing rate.
