The Catanduanes State University (CSU) College of Health Sciences (CHS) Department of Nursing is currently stepping up its campaign to attract more enrollees through their province-wide Career Guidance Orientation to secondary schools, which started last October 2012.
“The orientation aims to create awareness to the public, especially to the graduating high school students, that there is still a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) course offered in CSU,” Jocelyn Ll. Jordan, Dean of CHS said.
“The colleges probably had low enrollees some few years in the past because of the misconstrued information that nursing schools in the country are being closed down,” she added.
She also believes that because of the good performance of CSU in the Nursing Licensure Examinations (NLE), the college will be excluded in the Moratorium imposed by Commission on Higher Education (CHED).
The orientations were conducted in Palta National High School, Cabugao Integrated School, San Miguel Rural Development High School, Catanduanes Colleges, Bato Rural Development High School, Catanduanes National High School, CSU Laboratory Schools, Pandan School of Arts and Trade, Caramoran Rural Development High School, Bagamanoc Rural Development High School, and Viga Rural Development High School.
