The University of Makati has posted an 80.65-percent passing rate in the recent Nurse Licensure Exam 2019 after 25 out of 31 examinees from its College of Allied Health Studies passed.

Makati Mayor Abby Binay said she was proud of UMak’s latest achievement, saying it was “a validation of the city’s strong commitment to educational excellence.”

“I am proud to note that aside from an impressive overall passing rate that is way above the national rate, all 24 first-time board takers succeeded,” Binay said.

The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) has reported that 5,059 out of 9,691 examinees nationwide passed the board exam, or a 52.2-percent passing rate.

Binay encouraged the new nurses to apply at the Ospital ng Makati, where they can hone their skills and be of service to Makati residents.

Based on a list provided by the COAHS Center of Nursing at UMak, the 25 newly licensed nurses include Lenneth Jane Abundo, Crismarfel Adame, Khim Dorothy Alcarde, Mary Rose Amper, Licca May Andrada (cum laude), Fate Carmela Baselio, Aimah Cabugatan, Raven Catipay, Emmylisa Cato, Cathyrine Ceria (cum laude).

Completing the list are Gwendolene Yzavelle Cruz, Grace Eria, Maria Leorita Escala, Raul Escasinas, Jr., Ara Regine Bianca Festin, Jammy Ann La Compte, Jemima Keshia Laynesa, Kishie Ann Mabbagu, Jasmine Maqui, Melissa Jane Murao, April Joy Presto, Maria Genina Siriban, Patricia Ann Villanueva, Anne Bernadette Macalindong, and Junna Lee Plant.

In the June 2018 nursing board, UMak attained a 75 percent overall passing rate, with a 100-percent passing rate for its first-time examinees. For both 2017 and 2018, the university posted a 100-percent passing rate in the Pharmacists Licensure Examination.
