College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences
On June 2005, after the separation of AHSE (Associate in Health Science Education) from School of Science and Public Health, the College of Nursing emerged; and with it, was the introduction of new program, entitled Bachelor of Science in Nursing; which was granted with CHED recognition dated October 23, 2007. In the year 2009, the college finds itself expanding with more students, as it adopted a new program: Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics.
On October 10, 2011, the University Board Regents approved a proposal which changed the name of the college from “College of Nursing” to “College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences. From its humble beginnings, the College was transformed into a well-equipped and organized department that remains accessible to the poor and marginalized; while continuing to provide with quality and affordable education.
Both programs, currently recognized as Level II by the AACCUP; have been performing well in licensure examinations for the past years, thereby reflecting quality education services. The BS Nursing and BS Nutrition and Dietetics have built its strength in instruction through excellent classroom education and clinical practice, extension services and research; by catalyzing the interplay of concepts among these realms to develop the next generation of leaders engaging in the practice of Nursing and Nutrition and Dietetics as a profession.
In 2020, after realizing the threat of global concerns that paralyzes health and economic mobility, the College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences, through the stewardship of the University, have offered Bachelor of Science in Public Health (Major in Disaster Response); with the goal of helping the community through molding of students to be change agents in improving population health and reducing health care costs through transformative outcomes-based education (OBE).
