Colegio de Dagupan College of Nursing in its vision to create a community of nurses that is highly and technologically advanced in training and education, has continue to slither through the glare of publicity and recognition despite being an amateur in the Nursing academe with its existence since June 2003.

The college's first batch of Nursing graduates has topped the Provincial and Regional ranking with its 64% passing percentage last June 2007 Nursing Licensure Exam results. It has even bested out some of the reputable institutions in Metro Manila and the nearby regions and has excelled above the National Passing Percentage of 48%.

The college's second batch of Nursing examinees has once again topped the Provincial ranking when it registered a 56% passing percentage last December 2007 Nursing Licensure Exam results and once again has exceeded the national passing percentage of 43%.

The college has produced its first ever board topnotcher shortly with its second batch of Nursing graduates and third batch of examinees last June 2008 NLE results. Among the 21 new registered nurses from the college is the noteworthy, Rizza A. Tamayo who ranked 6th place overall. She is only a meager 1% behind from the No. 1 overall topnotcher from University of Santo Tomas in terms of board rating. And likewise, she is the only topnotcher from Pangasinan and the entire Region 1.

In July 2010 NLE, among the 91,008 examinees, only 37,679 passed registering a 41.4% national passing percentage, and 47 of which came from the college and earned a bewildering 62.9 % for the first takers topping the entire province and second overall with a passing percentage of 45.19%. And two of the passers, Melanie Grace Heng and Vanessa Castro were tight-close with the 10th placer.

Indeed, these are the realizations of the college's continuing vision and mission which is steadfast to serve its student and the society in operation of its entire wherewithal. Despite being an amateur, it has surmounted the many colleges and universities who are considered pioneers in the Nursing academe.

Colegio de Dagupan will continue to walk in the hall of eminence as it also continues to embark on quality education along with its near-rich goal to become a university.
