Nursing Schools in the Philippines
(last updated 19 July 2017)
A lot of people search for and ask me direct questions about Nursing Schools in the Philippines. Most nursing school candidates in the US never think of the Philippines when it comes to school but there can be some real advantages to attending school here. For one thing, most US nursing schools award an RN degree, a two or the year program. All the name-brand schools in the Philippines award a four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. This can be a big plus for future advancement. The difference between graduating from a university rather than a trade school.
In particular costs will be lower … a lot lower in many cases and, if you’re a US Military Veteran with educational benefits you can go to school at a VA approved Philippine school and come out way ahead cost of living-wise.
The top 10 nursing schools in the Philippines shake out something like this:
- Adamson University – 100% pass rate
- Angeles University Foundation – 100% pass rate
- Arellano University in Pasig City -100% pass rate
- Baliuag University – 100% pass rate
- Cebu Doctors University – 100% pass arate
- Cebu Institute of Technology – 100% pass rate
- Cebu Normal University – 100% pass rate
- Chinese General Hospital Colleges – 100% pass rate
- College of the Immaculate Conception – Cabantuan – 100% pass range
- Manila Central University – 100% pass rate
- Our Lady of Guadalupe Colleges – 100% pass rate
- Sacred Heart College of Lucena City – 100% pass rate
- Velez College – 100% pass rate
Instead of arbitrarily listing the top 10 school I used the current listing of schools and their performance on the June, 2017 national Nursing Licensure exam. You can be sure, based on student performance these schools can provide quality nursing education.
There may be others who would argue for a different ranking among these schools or that a few different ones should be on the list, but these are top-notch schools with the highest professional exam passing rates and you can not go wrong investigating them for yourself, your spouse or your children. Good luck in finding a quality education with an international flair and a very affordable (by US standards) tuition bill.
So let me know, you guys, your thoughts on Nursing Schools in the Philippines.
