UNP CN

In 1967, the College of Nursing was created in accordance with the UNP Board Resolution No. 109 S. 1967 in collaboration with Gabriela Silang General Hospital.  In the following year, it started to offer a five-year program leading to the degree Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) with Liberal Arts as its pre-nursing course. There were a total number of 10 pioneer students under the administration of the first Dean, Ms. Florencia Pagador. Five years after, the 10 pioneer batch graduated with a 100% passing mark in the 1972 Nurses’ Board Examination (NBE)

By 1973, there were no BSN graduates because the students joined the demonstration for a change in the CN administration and policies.  During this time, Ms. Cecilia Biteng Bayeng relieved Dean Pagador.  The supposed to be graduates of Batch 1973 joined the graduates of Batch 1974 with a total of 17 graduates.  All passed the Nurses Board Examination (NBE). In 1975 and 1976, the CN again gained 100% passing rate in the NBE with Ms. Lilia A. Salvador landing on Top 4.

In 1977, the BSN program was later shortened to four years pursuant to the directive of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports. This move, however, required the integration of some nursing subjects and the offering of courses during summer classes to complete the prescribed content. In 1978, there were a total of 40 graduates but only 39 took the Board Exam. Again, the CN gained 100% passing rate in the NBE.

In 1981, Dean Bayeng retired from the service and Ms. Lilia Salvador was designated the third Dean. After 18 years of operation, the College of Nursing became the Institute of Nursing in 1983 by virtue of Board Resolution No. 25 S. 1982. In 1995, Prof. Brigida Mercedes F. de Leon was designated as fourth Dean after the retirement of Ms. Lilia A. Salvador. In the same year, the Institute of Nursing was awarded Level I Candidate Status by the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges of the Philippines (AACCUP), Inc.

Cognizant to the need for more relevant curriculum that is responsive to the problems and needs of the country, the Institute of Nursing started to implement the Associate in Health Science Education (AHSE) BSN Curriculum in June 1998, per CHED Memorandum Order (CMO) No. 27 S. 1998.  This curriculum focused on the enrichment of contents and a change in approach requiring the integration and proper sequencing of concepts for more meaningful learning experiences that could enhance the competencies of the nurse and to function effectively in a changing society.

In 1999, Dr. Marciana P. De Vera was designated as Dean of the College of Nursing.  In 2002, the Institute was awarded Level II Re-Accredited status by the AACCUP, Inc. Four years after, the Institute of Nursing was converted to College of Nursing per Memo Circular No. 01, S. 2006. This move was in keeping with the status of the institution as a University under the administration of Dr. Lauro B. Tacbas. In 2007, Prof. Brigida F. de Leon was re-appointed as the Dean of the College. Two years later, the College implemented the CMO No. 14, S. 2009 entitled Policies and Standards for Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Program as a result of the recommendation of the CHED Technical Panel for Nursing Program.

In 2013, with the impetus of maintaining good academic standards as stipulated in the Ten-Point Agenda of President Gilbert Arce, the College underwent program accreditation and was awarded Level III Re-accredited status by the AACCUP.  It was also in the same year that the College obtained a 100% percent passing rate in the Nurse Licensure Examination (NLE).

After the retirement of Dean Brigida Mercedes F. de Leon in 2013, Dr. Julieta T. Gunid assumed the post as Dean of the College. In 2016, aiming to involve all stakeholders in the activities of the college, the CN Parents, Teachers and Cooperating Agencies Association (CN-PTCAA) was organized.  The organization envisions to cater to the needs and concerns of its stakeholders. Through the concerted efforts of the faculty, students and other stakeholders and with the support of the UNP administration, the College passed the Level 1V first survey visit by the AACCUP in 2018.

Through the years, the College maintained its mandate to produce quality professionals as evidenced by the “very satisfactory” passing percentage in the Board Examination given each year. It has forged linkages with government and non-government organizations with the intention to improve instruction. Numerous extension programs and activities were conducted to help improve its services to the different communities. It also continues to maintain its partnership with its alumni.

To date, the College has been a great contributor of competent professionals who have joined the workforce in nursing education, nursing service, nursing legislation, nursing entrepreneurs, and law enforcement services. The faculty humbly remain conscious and dedicated to their roles to achieving the mission and goals of the University.

Goal

The College of Nursing aims to produce globally competent professional nurses guided by moral and spiritual values.

Objectives

It aims to develop and prepare a beginning nurse clinician; beginning nurse researcher; and beginning nurse manager.
