De La Salle Health Sciences Institute’s College of Nursing offered a thanksgiving mass and testimonial ceremony in honor of the successful examinees in the June 2016 Nurse Licensure Examination at De La Salle Villarosa Convention Hall on July 13.


In his message, DLSHSI President Br. Gus Boquer FSC urged the nurses to be the best that they can be. “I hope that you have found your dream. Whether you will chase it here in the Philippines or in other countries, be the best that you can be.”


Melissa Malong, RN, who bested all the other examinees and topped the exams, talked about her love for hospitals and her awe of the medical team rushing to care for their patients. She quoted Margaret Harvey, PhD, RN, president of the Indianapolis Campus of the Chamberlain College of Nursing who said: “When a person decides to become a nurse, they make the best decision in their lives. They chose to dedicate themselves to the care of others.”
