    try enrolling at my alma mater. university of the east ramon magsaysay memorial medical center. it had been consistent with its rank all these years and has a record of 97% board passing rate in the 2007 nursing licensure exam. their aim is not only worry to claim top notcher in the nursing board exam but the primary mission of the school is the passing rate in the board exam which includes you if you had enrolled in this school. but be careful on choosing this school because tough competitions is ahead of you and i realised that this is what nursing is about. i recently passed the 2007 nursing licensure exam and waiting for nursing jobs to open and before that i have to register first to prc and get my license on october 25, 2007. so good luck to you of choosing what school you think is best but my advice to you is; choose a college not by its name or by how many top notchers they have, but choose a college which has a good overall performance in the nursing licensure exams which will not only include only one person but which includes you.

    good luck and god bless:spin: and to allnurses.com

    Silliman University has been consistently among the top 3-5 nursing school in the Philippines.

    For me,I'm proud to say that I'm a graduate of PLM (Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila).I know that it's not as popular as UP or UST but the quality of education is high.And the quality of it's graduates will speak for itself.Most of my classmates and my schoolmates are now here in the States or in UK.Before I also wanted to study in UST but sadly my parents cannot afford the high tuition fee but I got lucky when I was taken in at PLM.With UP however I know that the tuition fee is socialized and the priority should be poor but bright and deserving students but it's ironic now that most of the students there are rich and some are not even deserving but they just happen to have the "necessary connections."

    ^^^necessary connections wouldn't exactly get you accepted in UP mla
    they accept only a limited number of students; their batch 2007 graduates was just around 65

    It is not easy to get into the best Nursing school (UP, UST, SLU)..They usually have a competitive entrance or qualifying exams. Take for instance SLU. To get into this university's nursing program, you have to compete with thousands of other candidates for their five hundred slots for their first/second year intake. These five hundred students then compete academically for the three hundred slots in their 3rd/4th year. Those who do not make the cut have to look for another school. I believe UST also do this...This is the reason why these schools have consistently almost hundred percent passing mark in the Board exams..They only select the top students.

    I am a Thomasian, ofcourse i will be a bit biased about UST as the best nursing school in the Phil, but if your looking for a good nursing school there, here are the list that the school hould have (Im a previous Clinical Instructor at one of Nursing school in Mendiola, so i have a broad knowledge how does a nursing school works):

    1. The should have their own hospital (Its hard for the school if they don't have their own hospital. They accept nursing schools in their hospital only if the school pays a lot of money, in the end.. its the parents who suffer...

    2. The school should be at least have a credible/consistent tract record in their board passers. Try researching it in the PRC website.. You can see their tract record for 5 years or more.

    3. The school should be atleast 10 years old... So you'll know it is well established already... their curriculum changes almost every semester.

    4. try to find out their student:teacher ratio and their student:CI ratio. In UST, we have 35 students to one teacher and 11 students to one CI.

    There you go.

    UST grad eh? cool. Not a UST grad here. But I agree with a lot of your comments. However, we should also realize that although UST and UP, for example, are both associated with well-respected tertiary hospitals, some nursing programs that do not have a hospital under the school's ownership have an exclusive affiliation with a single hospital that is considered their base hospital. With that said, I agree with your comment that the cost of tuition will be more expensive in schools of this type because the fees for the affiliation will likely be added to the total tuition.

    I also think that not all nursing schools that "own" a hospital are necessarily good just because they "own" the hospital. Some of the hospitals that are associated with specific nursing schools do not offer a wide range of hospital services. Many do not even have a large enough patient census to support sufficient exposure for their own nursing students to learn every patient case or care scenario.

    Finally, because nursing is such a broad field that encompasses many different specialties and roles, it is inevitable for a nursing school to not affiliate with many hospitals and community-based centers. That is why majority of schools, even UST and UP, affiliate with other specialty hospitals in Metro Manila as well.

    Any nursing school that is easy to get into, red flags should be going up.

    As a first year student, not sure what you have had in the way of clinicals either at this point in time. Very different in the real world than what you cover in the first year of a program.

    The better programs are quite difficult to get into, even for someone that holds a passport from there. Definitely not easy.

    And with it getting harder and harder to find a job, they are only going to go to those that have graduated from the best schools.

    yup, some employers go for the "big-time", they have 'agents 'scour the various universities and colleges and compare it to international standards and prc records. one of my high school classmates is one of those 'agents' put on temporary assignment aside from their regular duties.

    those schools which are difficult to enter are continuously straining out the best so that their(school) name is a beacon of hiqh quality to potential employers.
