UST recorded a 100-percent passing rate in the November 2021 licensure examinations for nurses, marking the seventh consecutive time the University was spotless in the nursing board exams.

The University was named the No. 1 top-performing school in the November 2021 examinations with all 58 Thomasians making the cut. Three Thomasians made it to the top 10.

Margaret Lucas Sta. Maria led the fresh batch of Thomasian nurses with a score of 87.80 percent, sharing the fourth spot with five other examinees.

Also in the top 10 were Thomasians Anneka Marjan Halum Goingo, who ranked seventh with an 87.20-percent mark, and Graciele Adelfina Zaraspe Averia, who placed ninth with a score of 86.80 percent.

Kiarra Belle Arante Poblador of the Siliman University in Negros Oriental is this year’s topnotcher, scoring 89.40 percent.

The University’s five-year streak of being the top-performing nursing school in the Philippines was snapped in July 2021 due to low examinee turnout. It has however maintained its immaculate streak for the seventh straight nursing board exam cycle.

The national passing rate in the November 2021 licensure examinations for nurses slid to 51.45 percent or 6,086 passers out of 11,828 examinees, from July 2021’s 64.65 percent or 5,008 out of 7,746 examinees.

The November 2021 licensure examinations were held from Nov. 21 to 22.
