CdD CON garners 80 % passing rate in July 2011 NLE

Posted Date: 08/30/2011

Notwithstanding  the nationwide decline in Nursing enrollees, Colegio de Dagupan College of Nursing  surmounts these impediment by registering an 80 % passing rate for its first  takers in the July 2011 Nursing Licensure Examination, one of the Nursing  schools creating a high mark in the province. It is the highest in the history  of the college since it earned 64 % passing rate in 2007 and the highest  percentage registered by a Nursing school in Dagupan City beating the other  universities in the whole Pangasinan.

  The Professional  Regulation Commission (PRC) announces that 37,513 out of 78,135 passed the  Nurse Licensure Examination given by the Board of Nursing in the cities of  Manila, Baguio, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Dagupan, Davao, Iloilo, La Union,  Legazpi, Lucena, Nueva Ecija, Pagadian, Pampanga, Tacloban, Tuguegarao and  Zamboanga last July 2-3, 2011; indexing a 48 % national passing rate. Jomel G.  Lapides from University of the Philippines Manila topped the said examination  with a 88.40 % mark.

Recently, the  Commission on Higher Education has released the list of 152 Nursing schools who  will be endorsed for possible closure due to poor passing percentages in the  NLE over the past five years. The 152 nursing schools  were found to have performed below the national passing rate of 46.14 % for the  past five years. It is of note to say that CdD is not among the schools  listed. CHED will enforce a rule that schools whose  performance in licensure examinations is 30% and below for three consecutive  years would have their permits revoked and their concerned program phased out.

  CHED is determined to crack down on poorly performing schools to ensure that  higher education institutions offer quality education. Alongside, Colegio de  Dagupan is steadfast to its mission in  preparing its students with the best education consistent with the needs of  society €“ a nurse graduate that is competent, committed and diverse.

Here is the list of  the 24 new registered nurses adding up to the roster of professionals produced  by Colegio de Dagupan:

Jeannie  Lyn A. Acosta, Christine D. Ang, Judys Q. Apilado, Maricris L. Bajen, Donna A.  Baldonado, Joy Duchess S. Capua, Michelle A. Chua, Rochelle B.
