ABCollege School of Nursing’s 89% is number 1 in the region

The Andres Bonifacio College School of Nursing’s batch 2009 topped the region in the November 2009 Nursing Licensure Examination conducted by the Professional Regulatory Commission Board of Nursing ( PRC-BON) as twenty-six (26) of twenty-nine (29) first-time takers passed the said examination that attracted more than ninety thousand nursing graduates throughout the country.

The 89.66% (26 of 29) passing rate of ABCollege was followed by Unibersidad de Zamboanga’s 87.50% (77 of 88), and Ateneo de Zamboanga’s 76.34% (71 of 93) in the top three in a batch that recorded the lowest national passing rate (39%) in the history of the said licensure examination.

Western Mindanao State University (70.18%) and Misamis University-Ozamis City (67.23) completed the top five.

After including the repeaters, Unibersidad de Zamboanga ended up with 87.17% overall (1st);  the Andres Bonifacio College , 76.09% (2nd); and the Ateneo de Zamboanga, 70.25 (3rd).

The Jose Rizal State College’s first-time takers obtained 64.86% (65.79% overall) while the Dipolog Medical Center College Foundation, Inc. got 30.84% (22.12% overall.)

The PRC-BON expressed concerns about the low national passing percentage which they attributed to the proliferation of “diploma mills” or schools that accept unqualified enrollees for the sake of profit. Such profit-oriented frame of mind, they said, unjustly conditions the students’ expectations of becoming nurses when in fact they should be venturing into different fields where they are more adept at.

The 2009 batch is Andres Bonifacio College’s 4th batch of nurses. Its first three batches recorded rates of not lower than 60%. Such consistently high passing rates have not escaped the attention of aspiring nurses and their parents throughout the region. (the MINDANAO OBSERVER)
