Welcome to College of Nursing

For over 74 years, we have continually innovated and kept up to date with industry practices for our students to become the best nursing practitioners wherever they are in the globe by teaching them international nursing standards and practices. This is reflected in the alumni we have produced practicing all over the world.

Our college aims to ensure the knowledge we teach to our students is relevant and useful through our ties with various organizations in the Medical Industry, like the Philippine Red Cross (PRC). We are proud to be among the PRC’s pioneer schools in establishing the Institute for Public Health Emergencies.

All our efforts are recognized by the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation, an external body that checks the quality standards of universities and has given us a Level II status.
