THE UNIVERSITY extended its almost decade-long flawless streak in the licensure examinations for nurses after all five Thomasian examinees made the cut in the May 2024 cycle.

Every Thomasian examinee has passed every nursing board exam cycle since 2015.

Leading the batch of new Thomasian nurses was Camille Nuguid, who ranked fourth nationwide with a 91.40-percent score.

Abigail Cayanan of the St. Jude College of Dasmariñas, Cavite, Inc. topped the recent exams with a score of 92.60 percent.

Three schools tied for the top-performing school in the May 2024 exams after logging perfect passing rates while fielding 51 or more examinees: Cavite State University (179 of 179), Southern Luzon State University Lucban (69 of 69), and University of Mindanao (63 of 63).

Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila was named the top-performing school among those that fielded 30 to 50 examinees, with all 31 of its examinees making the cut.

In November, UST was among the 17 top-performing schools in the nursing board exams after all 300 Thomasian examinees passed.

The national passing rate slid to 69.72 percent (7,749 passers out of 11,114 examinees) this year from 80 percent (25,761 passers out of 32,203 examinees) in the previous cycle.

The May 2024 licensure exams for nurses were administered from May 6 to 7.
