About the College of Nursing
The San Beda College-College of Nursing was established in March 2003 under a Memorandum of Agreement with Loyola Medical Foundation, Inc. and San Beda College, in response to the growing need for nurses in the Philippines and throughout the world.
The College offers a four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree course, which is a competency based, community-oriented and Christian value-based education. Effective and efficient curriculum implementation is reflected in providing theories (didactics) of professional subjects prior to exposure in the clinical area, thereby giving students a competitive edge in terms of cognitive competency needed in the Related Learning Experiences (RLE). Continuous community service through a sustained collaboration with government and non-government agencies, leadership training and evidence- based research are emphasized and threaded throughout the different professional courses.
In its pursuit of sustained quality education, SBC CON has provided more than adequate clinical learning areas in two base hospitals namely: Seamen’s Hospital (100 bed capacity tertiary hospital) and AFP Medical Center (1,200 bed capacity government hospital) plus other affiliating hospitals such as Philippine Heart Center, National Kidney and Transplant Institute, Lung Center of the Philippines, Cardinal Santos Medical Center, Jose Fabella Hospital, Gat Andres Bonifacio Memorial Medical Center, Ospital ng Maynila Medical Centet, National Center for Mental Health, Philippine Orthopedic Center, Manila Health Department, Quezon City Health Department, Philippine National Red Cross Manila and Quezon City Chapters, and an adopted community in Barangay Muzon, City of San Jose del Monte, Bulacan.
SBC CON has woven a nursing program that provides holistic development of students through value-oriented curricular and co-curricular activities and extracurricular activities.
