The Department of Nursing (DON) has been educating future nurses especially in the areas of community involvement, instruction, and laboratories for over 40 productive years.
The Department opened as a College of Nursing in 1976 with a five-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) program at the former Girls High School campus, now the USC South Campus, during the time when education of nurses shifted from hospital-based to university-based. The following year, a four-year year B.S.N. program replaced the previous program. Its B.S.N. program is an outcomes-based educational (OBE) program. The Department uses a 3-3 format in the implementation of the program; i.e., theoretical input is delivered for three consecutive days followed by hospital or community exposure in the remaining three days, highlighting the significance of integration of theory and practice. Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (VSMMC), Cebu City, is the base hospital of the Department. In addition, nursing students also go to Perpetual Succour Hospital, Cebu City Medical Center, Eversley Childs Sanitarium, St. Anthony Mother and Child Hospital, Ramon Durano Foundation for the Elderly, and San Pio Community in Talisay City.
At the Department of Nursing, the student is the center of his/her learning environment. To build student confidence in hospital exposures, the Department owns a high-end laboratory complete with modern simulators. In the laboratory, students simulate the skills needed in hospital work. What happens in hospital and community works in the future is first experienced by the student in the nursing laboratory and then in affiliated hospitals and communities progressively cued to his/her pace of learning.
