THE UP COLLEGE OF NURSING
History of the College of Nursing
The University of the Philippines College of Nursing (UPCN) was conceived through a thesis presented to
the Division of Biological Sciences, University of Chicago, by Ms. Julita V. Sotejo, entitled, “A University
School of Nursing in the University of the Philippines.” An abstract of this thesis was enthusiastically
received by Filipino nurses in convention on May 9, 1946, such that a resolution supporting the proposal
was passed by the Filipino Nurses Association (now Philippine Nurses Association). After discussions and
consultations with then UP President Dr. Bienvenido M. Gonzales and members of the Board of Regents
(BOR), the latter favorably endorsed the proposal to the President of the Philippines, so that on April 9,
1948, the University of the Philippines College of Nursing came into being.
The first academic offerings of UPCN in 1948 were the baccalaureate program, Bachelor of Science in
Nursing (BSN) for high school graduates, and the Post-Basic Program for nurses who graduated from the
three-year Graduate in Nursing (G.N.). In 1955, the Master’s program, M.A. (Nursing), was instituted as a
thesis course with functional majors in administration, teaching and supervision, and public health. In 1968,
the Masters in Nursing (MN) program, a non-thesis course focused on clinical specializations in Medical-
Surgical Nursing, Maternal Child Nursing, Psychiatric Nursing and Community Health Nursing, was added
to the graduate program. In response to the constantly changing times and the needs of the profession,
Nursing Administration and School Health Nursing were subsequently added to the specialty fields. The
doctoral program, Ph.D. (Nursing), was instituted on September 27, 1979.
In 1972, President Marcos signed Executive Order 545 that merged the Philippine General Hospital School
of Nursing and the UP College of Nursing. In 1977, the Health Sciences Center was created, making it an
autonomous unit of the UP System. In view of its renewed organizational structure, the College of Nursing
moved out of its place at the first floor of the UP College of Law in Diliman, Quezon City and joined the rest
of the health professions in Manila where it rightfully belongs. Today, it is better known as the University of
the Philippines Manila, the College of Nursing being one of its nine degree-granting units.
Thus far, since its inception in 1948, UPCN has had twelve (12) deans who have all given the best years of
their lives to the College, in particular, and the university, in general and continue to be the inspiration and
role models of the alumni and students who make the university proud of their accomplishments and
contributions to the country and the profession:
1. Dean Julita V. Sotejo - 1948-1970
2. Dean Leonor M. Aragon - 1970-1978
3. Dean Teodora A. Ignacio - 1978-1980
4. Dean Dolores M. Recio - 1980-1984
5. Dean Aurora S. Yapchiongco - 1984-1990
6. Dean Leda L. Layo-Danao - 1990-1993
7. Dean Thelma F. Corcega - 1993-1996
8. Dean Cecilia M. Laurente - 1996-2002
9. Dean Luz B. Tungpalan - 2002-2004
10. Dean Josefina A. Tuazon - 2004-2010
11. Dean Araceli O. Balabagno - 2010-2013
12. Dean Lourdes Marie S. Tejero - 2013-2017
13. Dean Sheila R. Bonito - 2017- present
And after 48 years, UP College of Nursing finally has its own building situated along Pedro Gil Street, Manila,
through the efforts of Congressman Rolando Andaya, Chancellor Ernesto E. Domingo, Chancellor Perla D.
Santos-Ocampo, Dr. Napoleon M. Apolinario, Dean Julita V. Sotejo, Dean Leda L. Layo-Danao, Dean
Thelma F. Corcega, Dean Cecilia M. Laurente and all the alumni, friends and supporters of the College of
Nursing, without whose endeavor generosity and indefatigable efforts this would not have been made
possible.
It was inaguarated on February 26, 1997 by Cong. Rolando Andaya, President Emil Q. Javier, Chancellor
Perla D. Santos-Ocampo and Dean Cecilia M. Laurente.
Through the leadership of Chancellor Alfredo T. Ramirez, the Board of Regents approved the naming of
Undergraduate Student Handbook AY 2019-2020 7
the building after its founder, Sotejo Hall and this was formalized on September 4, 2000. This is the first
time that a building was named after a person who was still living.
The College of Nursing has been designated as World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Center for
Nursing Development in Primary Health Care from March 15, 1989 - March 14, 2001 and it was again re-
designated as WHOCC for Leadership in Nursing Development last January 2008 until April 2016.
The College of Nursing was also designated as a Center for Excellence by the Commission on Higher
Education (CHED-COE) since 1996 up to present.
Philosophy
To strengthen the capabilities of its individual members and the society as a whole through relevant
education, research, and continuing education and community extension services.
Vision-Mission
The University of the Philippines Manila College of Nursing is the premiere nursing school that acts as a
change agent, serving the health needs of the Filipino people, and provides leadership and excellence in

Registration through the Student Academic Information System (SAIS)
Just before the end of each semester, you will be required to do an on-line-pre-enlistment of subjects,
these are the subjects that will be enrolled in the succeeding semester, you will be issued your password
by the (OUR) Office of the University Registrar. Please store this password in a safe place since you will
be using this every time you want to access your records via the (SAIS) UP Student Academic Information
System. Regular on-line enlistment is done during the registration period. Your class adviser/college
secretary will guide you on what subjects to take.
Important Academic Information and Policies
1. There are 2 semesters in one academic year. Once semester is made up of 16 weeks. The unit of
credit is the semester hour.
Specifically:
1 unit of lecture = 16 hours
1 unit of laboratory work = 32 hours
1 unit of clinical work = 64 hours
E.g., Nursing 12 will be
3.5 units of lecture = 56 hours
.5 unit of laboratory work = 16 hours
2.0 units of clinical work = 128 hours
2. This is what your grades mean:
1.0……. Excellent
1.5……. Very good
2.0……. Good
2.5……. Satisfactory
3.0……. Passed
4.0……. Conditional Failure
5.0……. Failed
Inc.…… Incomplete
Grades of 1.25, 1.75, 2.25 and 2.8/75 may also be given and, of course, their interpretation shall fall in
between. A grade o “4.0” may be removed by successful repetition of the course, or by passing a re-
examination. If he/she passes, he/she is given a grade of “3.0”, but if he/she fails, a “5.0”. If the student
does not remove the grade of “4.0” within the prescribed time, he/she may earn credit for it only by
repeating and passing the course.
A grade of “Inc.” is given only if a student, whose class standing throughout the semester is passing
fails to take the final examination or to complete other requirements for the course due to illness or
other valid reasons. Removal of the “Inc.” be done within the prescribed time by passing the
examination or meeting all the requirements for the course, after which the student shall be given a
final grade based on his/her overall performance.
3. A University Scholar (US) is one who General Weighted Average (GWA) is 1.45 or better; a College
Scholar’s (CS) GWA is anywhere from 1.75 to 1.46.
4. Students who complete their courses with the following absolute minimum weighted average shall be
graduated with honors:
Summa Cum Laude: 1.0 - 1.20
Magna Cum Laude: 1.21 - 1.45
Cum Laude: 1.46 - 1.75
5. A student may, with the knowledge of his/her instructor and the concurrence of the Dean/College
Secretary, drop a course by filling up a form, which may be obtained from the (SRE) Student Records
Evaluator, and paying the corresponding amount at the Cashier’s Office, before the scheduled last day
for dropping (refer to the Academic Calendar).
Undergraduate Student Handbook AY 2019-2020 16
6. Critical dates to remember are the following. Look at the approved University Calendar for the specific
dates.
 Dropping
 Leave of Absence
 Application for Graduation
 Completion of incomplete grades
 Removal exams for grade of 4.0
7. A student may apply for Leave of Absence (LOA) specifying the valid reason and the specific period in
a formal letter addressed to the Dean/College Secretary. The duration of an LOA should not be more
than one academic year, renewable for almost another year. If beyond the allowable period of two
years, an honorable dismissal without prejudice to readmission shall be given.
If the decision to go on LOA was made before the start of the semester, the student should make the
request in writing and then accomplish the clearance form during the enrollment/registration period;
failure to do so would mean Absence Without Leave (AWOL).
But if the decision to go on LOA was made after the student has already enrolled and actually attending
classes, accomplishing the necessary papers should be done on or before the last day of filing LOA as
scheduled in the Academic Calendar. In this case, no grade shall be given for the subjects taken during
the current semester.

 N-108 (Nursing Interventions III)
 N-109 (Nursing Interventions IV)
 N-121 (Intensive Clinical Experience)
9. Maximum Residency Rule (MRR) is applied to students who fail to finish the BS Nursing program within
6 years (1-1/2 times the normal length of 4 years). Such students will no longer be allowed to continue
with the nursing course.
10. Warning, Probation, and Dismissed are labels you should be wary about.
10.1 Warning - If you fail in 25-49% of your total academics units
10.2 Probation - If you fail in 50-57% of the total number of academic units. You will be allowed to
enroll for a maximum of 12 units only during the succeeding semester.
10.3 Dismissal - If you fail in more than 75% but less than 100% of the total number of academic
units. Also, if you have been on probation and again fail in 50% or more of the total number of
units.
10.4 Permanent Disqualification– If you don’t pass any subject at all, you will be permanently barred
from enrolling in the University.
10.5 Your absence should not exceed 20% of the scheduled hours of any one subject. E.g., for a 3
unit lecture course, 20% is equivalent to three absences.
11. A student who has been absent is required to submit to the College Secretary on the first day he/she
Undergraduate Student Handbook AY 2019-2020 17
reports back to school either one of two things:
11.1 a letter written by the parent/guardian explaining the reason for the absence, or
11.2 a medical certification from the UP Manila Health Service signed by a licensed physician.
The student shall claim the Absence Slip duly signed by the College Secretary and this should be
presented to the corresponding faculty for signature.
12. Although there is really no need to mention it, please make sure you greet your teachers, the Chancellor
and other Central Administration officials, hospital and community officials when you meet them.
Courtesy may not be the best policy, but it does help a lot.
13. Make sure you know the complete name, including the middle initial of any faculty or school official you
are writing to. Needless to say, all correspondence should be typewritten on a clean, white bond paper.
14. Students are not allowed to enter faculty rooms, unless told to do so. Neither should you put anything
on the teacher’s table nor get anything on top of it, unless you have been specifically told to do so.
15. If you need to pass requirements but the teacher is not around, you may submit them to any
administrative staff of the College who is willing to accept them. Make sure, though, that you have your
own copy that can be stamped “Received”, the date and time and the name of the staff. (This is also
to say that whenever you have papers to submit, make sure you always have a duplicate for obvious
reasons.) You have to understand, however, that the administrative staff who receives your paper will
not in any way be held responsible for any loss that maybe incurred.
16. All students are enjoined to take good care of school facilities, furniture, books, models, laboratory
supplies and equipment, etc. Any loss or breakage shall be the student’s sole responsibility.
17. A nursing student, or any UP Manila student for that matter, may avail of the library services in any UP
Library of the different campuses, but more particularly in the UP Manila libraries which are generally
open from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Mondays to Fridays:

b. College of Arts and Sciences
c. College of Dentistry
d. College of Medicine
e. College of Nursing
f. College of Pharmacy
g. College of Public Health
h. National Teachers Training Center
i. University Library
18. What wrongdoings are considered “crime” in the University and may, therefore, be reasons for
expulsion?
18.1 Cheating/dishonesty in any and all forms. This includes giving wrong, or withholding,
information in STS forms
18.2 Carrying firearms (guns & other deadly weapons)
18.3 Drinking or drunken behavior; use or possession of prohibited drugs
18.4 Gambling
18.5 Gross and deliberate discourtesy
18.6 Creating disorder or tumult, breach of peace or serious disturbance.
19. No student can graduate with honors if he/she has an “underloaded” semester (i.e., less than 15 units)
or the normal load prescribed in the curriculum.
20. A final but very important note, the College of Nursing is one of the colleges of UP Manila which is
implementing a Return Service Agreement Program (RSA) RSA Program is an absolute admission
requirement for all first year students and lateral entrants. (Please refer to Handbook on Return Service
Agreement)

UP Nursing Alumni Association
The UP College of Nursing had its first Alumni Homecoming and Reunion after it graduated its first batch in
1952. In 1992, the College had its first set of Ruby Jubilarians. Meanwhile, the Philippine General Hospital
School of Nursing (PGHSN) has had thrice as many reunions.
In as much as many of the graduates of PGHSN are also graduates of the Post-basic and Masters program
of the College, and also because of the bonding that have been established all these years among the
graduates of both schools, the possibility of holding a Joint Reunion became a reality in 1989.
Being students of the College, you will automatically become members of the UPCNAAI and are, therefore,
enjoined to attend yearly reunions which are usually held in June.

Information on Expenses
The Universal Access to Tertiary Quality Education Act of 2017 institutionalizes the free tuition and
exemption of other fees to all undergraduate students of State Universities and Colleges, including the
University of the Philippines. This means that a student who enrolls at the University of the Philippines
does not pay any single centavo for his/her tuition and other fees. However, there are exemptions to this
rule. For example, students who are not able to finish the program in the prescribed number of years plus
one are no longer covered by the free tuition law.

  • 6. Undergraduate Student Handbook AY 2019-2020 6 THE UP COLLEGE OF NURSING History of the College of Nursing The University of the Philippines College of Nursing (UPCN) was conceived through a thesis presented to the Division of Biological Sciences, University of Chicago, by Ms. Julita V. Sotejo, entitled, “A University School of Nursing in the University of the Philippines.” An abstract of this thesis was enthusiastically received by Filipino nurses in convention on May 9, 1946, such that a resolution supporting the proposal was passed by the Filipino Nurses Association (now Philippine Nurses Association). After discussions and consultations with then UP President Dr. Bienvenido M. Gonzales and members of the Board of Regents (BOR), the latter favorably endorsed the proposal to the President of the Philippines, so that on April 9, 1948, the University of the Philippines College of Nursing came into being. The first academic offerings of UPCN in 1948 were the baccalaureate program, Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) for high school graduates, and the Post-Basic Program for nurses who graduated from the three-year Graduate in Nursing (G.N.). In 1955, the Master’s program, M.A. (Nursing), was instituted as a thesis course with functional majors in administration, teaching and supervision, and public health. In 1968, the Masters in Nursing (MN) program, a non-thesis course focused on clinical specializations in Medical- Surgical Nursing, Maternal Child Nursing, Psychiatric Nursing and Community Health Nursing, was added to the graduate program. In response to the constantly changing times and the needs of the profession, Nursing Administration and School Health Nursing were subsequently added to the specialty fields. The doctoral program, Ph.D. (Nursing), was instituted on September 27, 1979. In 1972, President Marcos signed Executive Order 545 that merged the Philippine General Hospital School of Nursing and the UP College of Nursing. In 1977, the Health Sciences Center was created, making it an autonomous unit of the UP System. In view of its renewed organizational structure, the College of Nursing moved out of its place at the first floor of the UP College of Law in Diliman, Quezon City and joined the rest of the health professions in Manila where it rightfully belongs. Today, it is better known as the University of the Philippines Manila, the College of Nursing being one of its nine degree-granting units. Thus far, since its inception in 1948, UPCN has had twelve (12) deans who have all given the best years of their lives to the College, in particular, and the university, in general and continue to be the inspiration and role models of the alumni and students who make the university proud of their accomplishments and contributions to the country and the profession: 1. Dean Julita V. Sotejo - 1948-1970 2. Dean Leonor M. Aragon - 1970-1978 3. Dean Teodora A. Ignacio - 1978-1980 4. Dean Dolores M. Recio - 1980-1984 5. Dean Aurora S. Yapchiongco - 1984-1990 6.

Dean Araceli O. Balabagno - 2010-2013 12. Dean Lourdes Marie S. Tejero - 2013-2017 13. Dean Sheila R. Bonito - 2017- present And after 48 years, UP College of Nursing finally has its own building situated along Pedro Gil Street, Manila, through the efforts of Congressman Rolando Andaya, Chancellor Ernesto E. Domingo, Chancellor Perla D. Santos-Ocampo, Dr. Napoleon M. Apolinario, Dean Julita V. Sotejo, Dean Leda L. Layo-Danao, Dean Thelma F. Corcega, Dean Cecilia M. Laurente and all the alumni, friends and supporters of the College of Nursing, without whose endeavor generosity and indefatigable efforts this would not have been made possible. It was inaguarated on February 26, 1997 by Cong. Rolando Andaya, President Emil Q. Javier, Chancellor Perla D. Santos-Ocampo and Dean Cecilia M. Laurente. Through the leadership of Chancellor Alfredo T. Ramirez, the Board of Regents approved the naming of
  • 7. Undergraduate Student Handbook AY 2019-2020 7 the building after its founder, Sotejo Hall and this was formalized on September 4, 2000. This is the first time that a building was named after a person who was still living. The College of Nursing has been designated as World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Center for Nursing Development in Primary Health Care from March 15, 1989 - March 14, 2001 and it was again re- designated as WHOCC for Leadership in Nursing Development last January 2008 until April 2016. The College of Nursing was also designated as a Center for Excellence by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED-COE) since 1996 up to present.

  • 15. Undergraduate Student Handbook AY 2019-2020 15 Registration through the Student Academic Information System (SAIS) Just before the end of each semester, you will be required to do an on-line-pre-enlistment of subjects, these are the subjects that will be enrolled in the succeeding semester, you will be issued your password by the (OUR) Office of the University Registrar. Please store this password in a safe place since you will be using this every time you want to access your records via the (SAIS) UP Student Academic Information System. Regular on-line enlistment is done during the registration period. Your class adviser/college secretary will guide you on what subjects to take. Important Academic Information and Policies 1. There are 2 semesters in one academic year. Once semester is made up of 16 weeks. The unit of credit is the semester hour. Specifically: 1 unit of lecture = 16 hours 1 unit of laboratory work = 32 hours 1 unit of clinical work = 64 hours E.g., Nursing 12 will be 3.5 units of lecture = 56 hours .5 unit of laboratory work = 16 hours 2.0 units of clinical work = 128 hours 2. This is what your grades mean: 1.0……. Excellent 1.5……. Very good 2.0……. Good 2.5……. Satisfactory 3.0……. Passed 4.0……. Conditional Failure 5.0……. Failed Inc.…… Incomplete Grades of 1.25, 1.75, 2.25 and 2.8/75 may also be given and, of course, their interpretation shall fall in between. A grade o “4.0” may be removed by successful repetition of the course, or by passing a re- examination. If he/she passes, he/she is given a grade of “3.0”, but if he/she fails, a “5.0”. If the student does not remove the grade of “4.0” within the prescribed time, he/she may earn credit for it only by repeating and passing the course. A grade of “Inc.” is given only if a student, whose class standing throughout the semester is passing fails to take the final examination or to complete other requirements for the course due to illness or other valid reasons. Removal of the “Inc.” be done within the prescribed time by passing the examination or meeting all the requirements for the course, after which the student shall be given a final grade based on his/her overall performance. 3. A University Scholar (US) is one who General Weighted Average (GWA) is 1.45 or better; a College Scholar’s (CS) GWA is anywhere from 1.75 to 1.46. 4. Students who complete their courses with the following absolute minimum weighted average shall be graduated with honors: Summa Cum Laude: 1.0 - 1.20 Magna Cum Laude: 1.21 - 1.45 Cum Laude: 1.46 - 1.75 5. A student may, with the knowledge of his/her instructor and the concurrence of the Dean/College Secretary, drop a course by filling up a form, which may be obtained from the (SRE) Student Records Evaluator, and paying the corresponding amount at the Cashier’s Office, before the scheduled last day for dropping (refer to the Academic Calendar).
  • 16. Undergraduate Student Handbook AY 2019-2020 16 6. Critical dates to remember are the following. Look at the approved University Calendar for the specific dates.  Dropping  Leave of Absence  Application for Graduation  Completion of incomplete grades  Removal exams for grade of 4.0 7. A student may apply for Leave of Absence (LOA) specifying the valid reason and the specific period in a formal letter addressed to the Dean/College Secretary. The duration of an LOA should not be more than one academic year, renewable for almost another year. If beyond the allowable period of two years, an honorable dismissal without prejudice to readmission shall be given. If the decision to go on LOA was made before the start of the semester, the student should make the request in writing and then accomplish the clearance form during the enrollment/registration period; failure to do so would mean Absence Without Leave (AWOL). But if the decision to go on LOA was made after the student has already enrolled and actually attending classes, accomplishing the necessary papers should be done on or before the last day of filing LOA as scheduled in the Academic Calendar. In this case, no grade shall be given for the subjects taken during the current semester. 8. He/she become “irregular” and, will be delayed for a year or two if a student fails any of the following prerequisite courses:  N-3 (Anatomy & Physiology)  Chemistry 30  N-10 (Nursing Foundation I)  Parasitology 10  Microbiology 20  N-4 (Pathophysiology)  N-8 (Basic Health Assessment)  N-9 (Nutrition and Dietetics for Nursing)  N-11 (Nursing Foundations II)  N-12 (Community Health Nursing I)  N-13 (Maternal and Child Nursing)  N-105 (Nursing Interventions I)  N-107 (Nursing Interventions II)  N-108 (Nursing Interventions III)  N-109 (Nursing Interventions IV)  N-121 (Intensive Clinical Experience) 9. Maximum Residency Rule (MRR) is applied to students who fail to finish the BS Nursing program within 6 years (1-1/2 times the normal length of 4 years). Such students will no longer be allowed to continue with the nursing course. 10. Warning, Probation, and Dismissed are labels you should be wary about. 10.1 Warning - If you fail in 25-49% of your total academics units 10.2 Probation - If you fail in 50-57% of the total number of academic units. You will be allowed to enroll for a maximum of 12 units only during the succeeding semester. 10.3 Dismissal - If you fail in more than 75% but less than 100% of the total number of academic units. Also, if you have been on probation and again fail in 50% or more of the total number of units. 10.4 Permanent Disqualification– If you don’t pass any subject at all, you will be permanently barred from enrolling in the University. 10.5 Your absence should not exceed 20% of the scheduled hours of any one subject. E.g., for a 3 unit lecture course, 20% is equivalent to three absences. 11. A student who has been absent is required to submit to the College Secretary on the first day he/she
  • 17. Undergraduate Student Handbook AY 2019-2020 17 reports back to school either one of two things: 11.1 a letter written by the parent/guardian explaining the reason for the absence, or 11.2 a medical certification from the UP Manila Health Service signed by a licensed physician. The student shall claim the Absence Slip duly signed by the College Secretary and this should be presented to the corresponding faculty for signature. 12. Although there is really no need to mention it, please make sure you greet your teachers, the Chancellor and other Central Administration officials, hospital and community officials when you meet them. Courtesy may not be the best policy, but it does help a lot. 13. Make sure you know the complete name, including the middle initial of any faculty or school official you are writing to. Needless to say, all correspondence should be typewritten on a clean, white bond paper. 14. Students are not allowed to enter faculty rooms, unless told to do so. Neither should you put anything on the teacher’s table nor get anything on top of it, unless you have been specifically told to do so. 15. If you need to pass requirements but the teacher is not around, you may submit them to any administrative staff of the College who is willing to accept them. Make sure, though, that you have your own copy that can be stamped “Received”, the date and time and the name of the staff.
