University of Saint Louis is top school in NLE

The University has made a sterling achievement again owing to its passing rate in the Nurse Licensure Examination (NLE) administered by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) last December 2013.

The University’s passing performance of 98.53 percent (67 passers out of 68 takers) in the said board exam places USL as Number 1 Top Performing School nationwide.


 “The achievement accounts to the hard work of our graduates and faculty, excellent academic program, quality assurance policies like our admission and promotion/ retention policies. The passers also went through spiritual guidance and a well-organized review program,” said Dr. Dindo V. Asuncion, the dean of the College of Health and Allied Sciences (CHAS).

List of Passers

With spectacular institutional passing rates in NLE, the University has been awarded by PRC as a top performing school nationwide since its pioneer batch took the exam in 2008 with its historic 100 percent passing rate making USL then as the Number 1 Top Performing School (under a certain category).

The University placed Top 2 in 2009, Top 6 in 2010, and Top 5 in 2012. The number of USL examinees in the Dec. 2011 NLE did not meet PRC’s cutoff to qualify the University as a top performing school then although it scored high with a passing rate of 94.29 percent (33 out of 35) against the national 33.92 passing percentage.
