Disciplined and hardworking—these are the qualities of the CSU July 2012 Nursing Licensure Examination passers, according to Dr. Jocelyn Ll. Jordan, Dean College of Health Sciences, that helped them earn the 80.37% CSU Passing Percentage.
This almost doubles the 45.69% National Passing Percentage set by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).
“Maybe it has something to do with the financial situation experienced by our students that urge them to be hardworking and disciplined students,” she stressed.
This year’s CSU Passing Percentage was listed as the second highest in the school’s record next to the 93% in 2009. Dr. Jordan also asserted that this year’s NLE result is overwhelming, beating last year’s 78.57% CSU passing rate.
The school was also listed as the third best performing Nursing Schools in Bicol Region by the PRC.
Eighty-six (86) out of the 97 total number of first-time takers from the CSU passed the NLE. This total is equivalent to 88.66% wherein six are among the top 20 placers, according to iMind and A1 review centers.
The placers were Rima, Adelle Monique C., 12th placer (83.40%); Villanueva, Nikki Rose T., 12th placer (83.40%); Peña, Katrina A., 18th placer (82.20%); Flores, Mark Anthony S., 19th placer, (82.00%7); Molina, Elaine Gay R., 19th placer (82.00%); and Ros, Sean Emerson C., 19th placer (82.00%).

However, ten retakers again failed the board exam, together with the other eleven first timers. “Hindi naman sila pwedeng maitsa-puwera because they are also products of the school,” Dr. Jordan stressed, “Dapat siguro they should go back to school, kahit na maki-sit-in lang sa mga klase, so that they can refresh their knowledge, and then we can also give them the appropriate attention they need,” she further added.
When asked about the possible factors that affected the students’ performances in the board exam, Dr. Jordan suggested the use of the old curriculum in the program for the previous years, including the batch which graduated last March 2012. She proposed that repeaters are lagging behind, since the modification of the program curriculum has already been implemented in the college pursuant to CMO No. 14, s. 2009.
She also cited the absence of a ladderized program as another possible factor. Other schools which adopt the ladderized method require students to pass the Midwifery Licensure Exam in their second year before they can be admitted for the next school year.
