  39. 39 joseph

    i inquire in this school via phone and one the staff shouted at me and he didnt even bother to say sorry,wag mag-aaral sa school na mababa na ang passing rate mga bastos pa ang mga staff

  40. 40 jay-r

    i am inquiring for any vacancies for CLINICAL INSTRUCTORS/ NURSE EDUCATORS. I am a graduate from ST. PAUL UNIVERSITY PHILIPPINES…

  41. 41 BSPT

    Most of the people asking in here are presently or planning to go for this school for nursing program . If you are wanting to know all of the answers to your questions you should personally visit the place not just post questions. How much the tuition fees on 1st year or 2nd year? duh If you are transferee – there will be costs discrepancies and the only thing you will know this is by visiting the school and doing the inquiries on your own.
    No offence but are these the future nurses the Philippines are producing? I will be scared to have a nurse whose being an ignorant on such simple things/tasks. No wonder Philippines are still producing non competive nursing grads because there are school that still caters for the weeded off students.

    If you failed in nursing courses – it only means that this is not the course for you. Please be aware that you will be dealing lives in here – Real lives !!!
