High hopes are now being held by the management of the Catanduanes State University (CSU) following a visit by officials of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) to check on the university’s plan to open a Master of Arts in Nursing (MAN) program in its College of Health Sciences (CHS).

Dr. Jocelyn L. Jordan, CHS Dean, revealed that the team from the CHED regional office in Legazpi City, led by Acting Director Dr. George M. Colorado, conducted an evaluation visit on November 7- 8, 2018 for the purpose.  

“The CHED Technical Committee for Nursing Education (TCNE) will take charge of the evaluation that we are proposing for the College of Health Sciences,” Dr. Morales revealed.

She expressed optimism that the College will be able to hurdle the requirements of the team as it pushes for the opening of MAN in the University. Dr. Ma. Teresa G. De Alban, Chief, Education Program Specialist, presented the CHED Technical Committee for Nursing Education during the first day of the evaluation visit held at the CHS Function Hall.

Meanwhile, Dr. Maria S. Tugano, Vice-President for Academic Affairs, in her message delivered for the CSU president during the visit, emphasized that “it is time that the College move-up the ladder of its own academic stature, as it is a well-deserved distinction.”

She stressed that the College of Health Sciences, besides having produced board topnotchers consistently over the years, has been ranked 25th out of 514 schools offering Nursing degree and is one of the 49 Best Nursing Schools in the Philippines for year 2017 based on the Local Pulse Ranking.

“Given this opportunity, it will create a huge refuge for many of our Registered Nurses in the province to afford a quality, economical and risk-free graduate studies as they will be spared from additional burden of expenses and risk in traveling to and from the mainland Bicol or elsewhere,” Dr. Tugano said.

The VP stressed that along with the institution’s primary goal of the Master’s program in Nursing to prepare qualified Nurses for clinical specialization, the University is also looking at a graduate program designed to prepare professional nurses for teaching, managerial and supervisory roles in healthcare institutions.
