anyone familiar with Philippine Womens University? specifically the Edsa QC branch?
comments on PWU Taft are also welcome.
anyway, the Edsa branch offers second coursers (2 year) programs although it is trimestral.
Is PWU a good nursing school

In this life, nothing is perfect. I think it’s all a matter of weighing the advantages and disadvantages whenever making a decision. What has been cited here was also true in my experience---they may be notorious for losing files (containing the documents that you gave them when they accepted you in the school)---as that is what happened to me in Taft Avenue. They lost all my pertinent documents and never found it again. So I had to get new a new set of transcript from my former school and then after that incident I made sure that whenever they receive something from me I had them sign a piece of paper as proof. And whenever they issue transcripts and RLE documents, you should go check it thoroughly because more often than not, it contains a “typographical error”. Also, when they evaluate you as to whether which subjects you should take or not, you should make sure that you also have that in writing---ask the Registrar AND Dean to sign it. I think that the area that they have to improve on is the documentation part and paper works. I was also almost excluded from the graduation list because of a “typographical error”. Of course these stuff pissed me off big time---but was not enough to deter me from finishing from the Quezon City Branch. The advantages are more important to me. PWU has long been established. I know that with enough students or not, their Nursing program continues to run---it’s not a hole in the wall kinda thing like the some of the Nursing schools today that suddenly mushroomed and might fold up when Nursing is no longer the “in” thing (so if that happens, you might have problems getting your transcripts and references right?) Also, I know some of their Nursing graduates who have been successful in the United States, Canada, and the Middle East---add the fact that I passed the NCLEX in one attempt and I was able to get my license, so I believe that their program is a legitimate one. And no matter how nice the skills lab of a school is, no matter how nice the facilities are, no matter how knowledgeable the professors are, if it’s not a legitimate one, then everything will be put to waste---that’s the bottom line. Be also wary of these schools that are very new, has very nice surrounding, has very new professors, and has no batch that has graduated yet and has no batch that took the boards yet---they might just be diploma mills luring unsuspecting students.
