Bachelor of Science in Nursing in the Philippines

Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is a four-year degree program in the Philippines that revolves around caring for the sick or injured. This does not only involve addressing immediate threats to the patient’s health, but also guiding the patient all the way through physical, mental, and emotional recovery.

As a nursing student you will be trained to conduct health assessments, provide patients with preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative care, perform life-saving interventions, respond to disaster and emergency situations, and keep medical documentations.

Through the course of your study, you will learn how to perform first aid techniques, take care of wounds,  prepare and administer drugs, feed patients through intravenous tubes, monitor vital signs, and care for patients with special needs such as those with physical disabilities, mental illnesses (Alzheimer’s disease), developmental disorders (autism), recurring illnesses, and patients who are only awaiting death.

In addition to those,  you will also be introduced to the administrative side of nursing such as the organizational structures of hospitals, patient classification systems, delegation of tasks, staffing, scheduling, and performance evaluation.

Some examples of subjects that you may take while enrolled in this program include:

  • Care of Mother, Child, and Family
  • Community Health Nursing
  • Microbiology and Parasitology
  • Bioethics
  • Care of Mother, Child, Family, and Population Group at Risk or with Problems
  • Nutrition and Diet Therapy
  • Pharmacology
  • Health Education
  • Care of Clients with Problems in Oxygenation, Fluid and Electrolyte Balance, Metabolism, and Endocrine
  • Care of Clients with Problems in Inflammatory and Immunologic Response, Perception, and Coordination
  • Care of Patients with Maladaptive Patterns of Behavior
  • Care of Clients with Problems in Cellular Aberrations, Acute Biologic Crisis Including Emergency and Disaster Nursing
  • Competency Appraisal
  • Nursing Leadership and Management
  • Nursing Research
  • Biostatistics

Aside from taking the courses mentioned above, your school may also facilitate a minimum of 2346 hours of On-the-Job Training at hospitals, community clinics, or similar facilities in order to give you a chance to apply what you have learned in school in a professional setting.

  2. Hi, I’m currenty a call center agent right now and already a commerce gradute but I am thinking of enrolling into Nursing. If ever I will enroll into nursing, will my minor subjects be credited so I don’t have to take it again? Can you please send me the list of major subjects including the minor subjects so I can check if I still need to take those subjects or if they can be credited already. Thank you so much!

    • Hi, Jona!

      Credits earned for general education subjects are typically carried over to the next course. Some schools have limits on the maximum number of units that can be carried over though, so you might want to contact the school you are thinking of enrolling at so they can give you a proper evaluation. Course curricula also vary per school, so it’s best if you’ll request for a copy from the school you wish to enroll at itself.

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      We’re sorry, but as much as we’d like to help you, we have no available information regarding the tuition fees imposed by schools offering the nursing program in the Philippines. It’s best if you’ll contact the schools offering them directly so they can give you an accurate and more detailed response.
