West Visayas State University College of Nursing (WVSU-CON) once again proved that they are a consistent top-notch school in the Nursing Licensure Examination (NLE) when eight of their graduates made it to the top 10 of the 2017 NLE. Leading the pack is Mary Angelie Cardente Cabañez who placed first in the exam with the highest score of 86.20 percent.

Joining Cabañez in top 10 are seven other graduates of CON namely Nechelyn Consular, who placed fourth with a rating of 84.80 percent, Alyssa Jude Montalban, who ranked fifth with a score of 84.60 percent, followed by Joane Christine Pedrola in the sixth place with a rating of 84.40 percent. Both in the seventh place with a rating of 84.20 percent are Lourence Ann Garrido and Julie May Suganob, followed by Darlyne Esposo at the eighth place with a rating of 84 percent, while Princess Meliton is at ninth place with a rating of 83.80 percent.

“The big news is that after 24 years, we were able to produce the 3rd Top 1 individual performer,” said Dr. Rosanna Grace Belo-Delariarte. “Top 1 individual performer, Top 2 performing school, and 8 in the top 10 this 2017! To God be the glory!”

West Visayas State University staged a special convocation to cap the two-day celebration of its 115th Founding Anniversary. The momentous event which was held at the WVSU Cultural Center on June 16, 2017 gathered university officials, faculty, staff, students and alumni together as they look back on the remarkable milestone that WVSU has gone through.

The special convocation opened with a Holy Mass with Rev. Father Joel Eslabra as the celebrant “There are two gifts we can give to our children. Roots and wits.” started the Fr. Eslabra. “Wits we surely have. It is known to many that WVSU has been in the forefront of quality education, training, and research; and we have excellent graduates to prove such. However, when we say ‘roots’, we refer to what is essential in our life. What is important is for each one of us to hold on to what is truly important like values, character, and love. Remember, that the many awards and merits that we receive are simply offshoots of what is already anchored on the essentials in life.”

115 voices from the university officials, as well as selected WVSU faculty and staff joined the Panayana Cultural Group in singing the WVSU Hymn, WVSU March, and the WVSU Quality Policy. Ms. Janette Aguilar and Dr. Rhea Bunda likewise rendered their voices through songs that rang deep with emotions.

The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Regional Office 6 signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with West Visayas State University (WVSU) on June 2, 2017 at the Center for International Linkages and Public Information (CILPI) guest lounge.  The MoA states that WVSU was chosen to be the Local Research Institute (LRI) for the conduct of the Citizen Satisfaction Index System (CSIS) in Oton, Iloilo.

Present during the event were DILG Provincial Director Teodora P. Sumagaysay, Local Government Monitoring and Evaluation Division (LGMED) Assistant Chief Anna Lee Mostacho, and Local Government Operations Officer (LGOO) Stephanie Almira, WVSU President Dr. Luis M. Sorolla, Jr., University Research and Development Center (URDC) Director Dr. Greta G. Gabinete, together with URDC’s Mrs. Maria Luisa Z. Albacete, Mr. Rey L. Arenga, and Dr. George Fredrick A. Roxas.

The CSIS was developed to serve as a tool for drawing in applicable information for gauging citizen satisfaction in the various local government services that are delivered to help improve their socio-economic condition and advance their appreciation of local political affairs, as well as effectively transform them into becoming productive development partners. “We chose WVSU because the institution has an impressive track record in producing national examination board passers, it is dynamic in research, active in extension work, continuously strives for quality education, is politically neutral, and constantly delivers genuine public service”, explains Ms. Sumagaysay. From 2013 to 2015, all cities were covered by the CSIS and 31 municipalities were pilot-tested in 2016. This 2017, pursuant to DILG Memorandum Circular 2017-32, the CSIS will be implemented in 30 target municipalities.

The Office of the Senior High School Coordinator of West Visayas State University-Main Campus hereby announces that the enrolment in the Senior High School (SHS) on ABM, GA, HUMSS, and STEM Strands has been officially closed and all slots were already filled in.

Thank you very much.

The office of Senator Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV sponsored a consultation seminar-workshop that had university officials, faculty, student leaders, and alumni of West Visayas State University in attendance. The event which was held at the Center for Teaching Excellence on May 4, 2017 is a nationwide movement targeting the top 10 State Universities and Colleges (SUCs).

Legislative officer Anna C. Venturina explained how this works: “We travel all over the country and visit the top 10 State Universities and Colleges to conduct this consultation seminar. Senator Bam Aquino is in relentless pursuit of vital reforms in the education sector and we believe that by going to each institution, we will be able to hear challenges and problems firsthand which are faced by our educational institutions. So as you can see today, we are adopting the grassroots approach by hearing from university officials, faculty, students, and the alumni”. Ms. Venturina further discussed that having Sen. Bam Aquino championing for Education in the Senate, he was able to push for two major bills which are currently in the pipeline. These are: (1) the Free Higher Education Act, and the (2) Pagkaing Pinoy para sa Batang Pinoy Act. “Through this seminar, we will be hearing imperative inputs from stakeholders which will push our office to craft any law or policy related to education”.

The College of Nursing (CON) welcomed three accreditors for the 1st Formal Survey Visit today at the CON Amphitheater as preparation for this year’s institutional accreditation. The said visit will run from May 24- 26, 2017 for the accreditation of the Master of Arts in Nursing (MAN) program to pass Level 1.

CON Dean Dr. Rosana Grace Belo-Delariarte praised her team of hardworking nursing professors “I am amazed by the energy, dedication, and patience that these men and women have showed, I can clearly see how committed they are towards the college’s goal because they have gone back to the university despite them being on summer break.  Truly, their thirst for quality and excellence remains unquenched”. Dr. Delariarte further explained that that the result of CON’s accreditation as a college somehow depends of this 3-day survey visit where M.A.N. program is will be checked and observed.
