    With over a thousand nursing schools in our country today, it’s not been easy to reach these feat. For NDDU College of Nursing, it’s not surprising that they achieved these far. No doubt NDDU’s nursing education has been a consistent performer since the course was opened wayback in the 80’s.

    My warmest CONGRATULATIONS to the NDDU community and I wish that sooner the school would produce #1 in the board exam.

    Galing ng Notre Dame. I’m one of examinees of batch Mein Benennen (batch 2010). Sana pic na lang namin nilagay niyo jan. hehe. Anyways, thanks for the article, it was worth reading. 😀

    I would like to congratulate my alma mater NDDU for having 2 board topnotchers in the recent NLE. I’m proud to be a nurse grad of this institution. With due respect to the author but I would just like to correct that the #1 Mindanao nursing School in terms of passing percentage is the MSU-IIT. It would be good if we acknowledge their accomplishments appropriately. Thanks.

    1. bariles says:

      @J.B.F., if you happened to read the blog article carefully, I was referring to the list of schools from the PRC with 100 or more examinees. Nowhere in that list is MSU-IIT, which belongs to another category, the less than 100 examinees list.

      Simply put, NDDU and MSU-IIT do not fall in the same league, and that’s according to the PRC. So NDDU is still the #1 nursing school in Mindanao with 100 or so examinees. 🙂

    1. bariles says:

      @Julita, based on their percentage of nursing board passers, NDDU might be the best nursing school for you. Enrollment for school year 2013-2014 is ongoing right now. You may wish to check out their official website . Good luck!
