ABOUT

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing curriculum is designed to make nursing education relevant to the national development goals and to prepare students for a profession that serves as a vital component in the country’s health system.  In accordance with the Policies and Standards of Nursing Education, 1984, the curriculum aims to produce a fully functioning nurse.  The graduate must be one who has: (1) developed a sensitive awareness of the health needs of society, as well as a commitment to the alleviation of accompanying problems that arise therefrom; (2), acquired the necessary skills, knowledge, and attitudes for the promotion of health, prevention of illness, restoration of health and alleviation of suffering; and (3) developed a research attitude through the use of the nursing process.  Such an attitude among others leads to the utilization of research findings.

In addition to the aims of the revised BSN Curriculum, the Silliman University College of Nursing (SUCN) upholds the University’s mission to facilitate the highest quality Christian education (SU Mission Statement, December 6, 1986).  The SUCN philosophy states: “ the Person is a unified whole, a responsive member of a family, community and the world who continually contributes to the improvement of the quality of life and environmental well-being within his life span.  Nursing is a caring discipline which assists the PERSON in coping with his needs and problems.  Utilizing the nursing process, this is achieved by independent practice in collaboration with other disciplines which aim at promoting and restoring health, preventing illness, and alleviating human suffering.  the Environment covers those tangible and intangible conditions that influence the person’s quality of life.  Health is the dynamic process of becoming the person one wants to be while upholding the ideals of Christian faith across one’s life span. Nursing Education is a holistic discipline that facilitates the Person’s acquisition of attitudes, knowledge, and skills towards professional nursing practice and a Christian quality of life. The Practitioner in Nursing is one who has acquired attitudes, knowledge, and skills in order to continually respond constructively to the changing needs of the profession, the health care delivery system, and society.

The earlier stated general aims, SU mission statement, and SUCN philosophy find concrete translation in all aspects of the educative process.  Policies, level objectives, course offerings, and their sequence, teaching-learning strategies, interpersonal relationships, co-curricular activities, evaluation methods, and others are all in harmony toward accomplishing the Silliman University mission.  The attainment of Level III accreditation by the PAASCU, the consistent record of 100% passing average in the national board examinations with 108 topnotchers since 1951, the excellent performance of alumni here and abroad are evidence of the quality education that the College has maintained since it was first established in 1947.

The baccalaureate program is aimed at developing students to become well-balanced and well-adjusted professionals who are sensitive to the needs of the community, country, and the world.  It is also aimed at preparing them for effective and personally satisfying service as a nurse generalist and providing them with a foundation for graduate study.

The College’s facilities include an academic building that houses classrooms and offices, laboratories, a Mini-CSR, and a women’s dormitory (the Ethel Chapman Dormitory).  The College also avails of facilities of several hospitals and agencies for the clinical practice of students.

Students learn to apply theories and principles in nursing at the Silliman University Medical Center and the Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital.  For practice in rural and community health nursing, they serve at nearby rural health units and at the Dumaguete City Health Department.  In addition, the College avails of the facilities of the IPHO Psychiatric  Extension Ward for psychiatric nursing experience, the Looc Elementary School, Cantil-e Elementary School, and the S.U. Elementary School for school nursing.
