College of Nursing

The idea of opening a College of Nursing was conceptualized in the year 2002 during the term of Fr. Jimmy Belita, C.M. as University President. It was spearheaded by Dr. Rosario Alberto, then Vice President for Academic Affairs; Dr. Myrna Añes, former dean of the College of Science; and Bro. Henry Escurel, then University Registrar. They were the ones who paved the way for the approval of the College’s curricular offering.

 

After being approved in 2002, the College underwent a series of evaluation from the Regional Quality Assurance Team under the deanship of Dr. Añes. Initially, the College of Nursing was only a department under the College of Science. In February, 2003, the College was given the permit to operate for one year and was asked to function independently from the College of Science, provided that the dean of the College is a holder of Bachelor’s degree in Nursing. Hence, Fr. Dionisio Abuel, C.M., a Vincentian priest and Registered Nurse, became the first Dean of the College. Unfortunately, the residency of Fr. Abuel as the dean of the college was short lived. Thus, the search for a dean with a Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in Nursing, practicing both in the clinical field and the academe began.

The College of Nursing (CON) officially started in 2003 under the deanship of Dr. Leah Primitiva Samaco-Pacquiz with 606 students and 4 faculty members. Almost a year after the term of Dr. Pacquiz, Mrs. Flora May B. Famadico assumed the position until the year 2005 of the first semester. It was under her administration that the first Nursing Aptitude Test (NAT) was held in order to maintain the high standards of the college.

 

This commitment to academic excellence and of quality education was further enhanced by Dean Naressia Seludo-Ballena (2005-present) in various ways. Strict implementation of the 2005 nursing curriculum and hiring of competent and dedicated faculty members were done to ensure the delivery of high-caliber education. Affiliating institutions also grew in number with the inclusion of hospitals such as St. Victoria Hospital, Antipolo City Medical Center, Gat Andres Medical Center, Dasmariñas Lying-in Clinic and specialized institutions like Philippine Orthopedic Center, National Center for Mental Health and San Lazaro Hospital to assist the students in acquiring the essential nursing skills and workplace attitude through their exposure with real-life situations.

 

The college has made a mark in the history of Adamson University when the first batch of Vincentian nurses attained a 90.82% passing rate in the Nurse Licensure Examination in the year 2007 under the administration of University President Rev. Fr. Gregorio Bañaga Jr. C.M. -- a feat considered victorious and worthy of respect and recognition not only from the University but from the entire nursing community.

 

Today, the Adamson University - College of Nursing, as a Catholic institution and an advocate of health, continues to provide quality education committed to produce socially responsible, world-class nurses endowed not only with the needed knowledge and skills but also with values inspired by the teachings of St. Vincent de Paul.
