With all 25 takers passing the examination
TACLOBAN CITY- The Remedios T. Romualdez Medical Foundation (RTRMF), based this city, has produced three of this year’s top 10 of the Nursing Licensure Examination conducted November of last year.
They were Kathryn Angelie Bugho who ranked number 2 with a passing rate of 86.80; Angelae Priscilla Cahilig who placed number 7(85.40); and Arianne Grapilon who landed at number 9 with a passing rate of 85.0.
The school’s 25 takers all passed the examinations.
Bugho,21, said that she was in utter shock when she learned on the results showing her landing at number two in last year’s Nursing examination.
“I am in total shock as I did not expect it,” she said.
She said that all she wanted is to see all of them passing the examinations.
About 4,811 out of the 12,033 examinees passed the state-sponsored examination held in Tacloban City and other cities in the country on Nov.17 and 18.
The topnotcher, who was crowned last year as Miss RTRMF, said that she learned that she was ranked number two through Facebook as she received several private messages coming from her friends and classmates.
Bugho, who is the eldest with two younger brothers and whose family hails from Burauen, Leyte, said that it’s been her ambition to become a nurse.
Asked what’s her immediate plan now after passing the licensure with flying colors, Bugho just giggled saying her high ranking has yet to sink in.
She, however, insisted that she want to work as a professional nurse as it has been her ambition to become a nurse.
Dean Socorro Salvacion Gasco said that she was extremely overwhelmed with the performance of her students.
She said that she was really rooting for Bugho to really take the number one slot.
“I really believed in her. I prayed for her that she would land as number one,” she said.
Bugho finished at the top of her class as she received an excellence academic award.
Gasco said that the school management has yet to decide how much Bugho will be receiving as an incentive for landing number two in the examination.
Those who passed the nursing examination from the school and land at number receive P100,000.
In 2015, the school produced that year’s number one for Nursing licensure exam in Alssya Claire Almo.
Gasco and the eight teachers of the Nursing school of the RTRMF are sure to travel as part of the school’s incentive.
