DLSL produces 82 new nurses
De La Salle Lipa (DLSL) garnered a passing rate of 97.62% for 82 passers out of 84 Lasallian examinees in the 2022 Nursing Licensure Examination (NLE), Nov. 29.
Julienne Eugenio, a 2022 graduate from DLSL and one of the NLE passers, told Lavoxa that she looks forward to finally venturing into the professional world without the guidance of her professors and gain more practical experience in the field.
Additionally, she shared her experience and advice for future NLE takers.
“I wasn’t a model student […] I wasted my time and energy on always asking myself ‘What if I fail?’, when I could have asked, ‘What if I pass?’ instead. The chances of failing are present, but so are the chances of passing. I learned to be kinder to myself […] studying is a strong way to get good grades, but so is having a healthy physical and mental state,” Eugenio said.
On the other hand, Yvan Saculo, a 2022 graduate and also one of the NLE passers, said that he plans to enter the workforce where he can further be honed as a professional.
Moreover, he stated how online learning affected his way of preparing for the NLE.
“Nahirapan ako in terms of learning retention, mabilis ko malimutan ang mga itinuro sa online […] Madalas mapapagod ka. Minsan tatanungin mo ang sarili mo ‘Bakit nga ba ako nag nursing?’, pero tingnan mo lang ang mga na-accomplish mo. Have fun and find your source of inspiration to keep on,” Saculo shared.
DLSL lagged behind its 2021 NLE passing rate of 100% by 2.37%. However, it surpassed the national passing rate of 74.40% by 23.22%.
The 2022 NLE was held last Nov. 12 to 13 at various testing centers nationwide with 18,529 passers out of 24,903 applicants.
