The College of Nursing of Our Lady of Fatima University is an institution known for developing competent, compassionate, and professional nurses. As the pioneering program of the University, the School of Nursing opened in 1973 with a modest enrollment of 180 students. It initialized the vision of a vast medical complex that would be a fertile training ground for healthcare providers. And, in 1976, that dream began to bear fruit when the first batch of Nursing graduates demonstrated an unprecedented 100% passing rate in the board examinations. Since then, the College of Nursing has been continuously enhancing its curricular offering, innovating its processes and upgrading its facilities to align with the global standards set for Nursing.
A point of pride of the College is the Virtual Laboratory— the first and one of the most advanced nursing arts laboratories in the country. It showcases advanced and computerized patient simulators and a functional Operating Room, allowing a conducive environment for learning— all these at tuition fee rates that remain to be one of the most reasonable in the Philippines.
Moreover, at OLFU, the faculty do not simply teach– rather and more importantly, teachers show students the “how to’s”. Nursing faculty do not give answers to all the questions– instead, the teachers huddle with the class to share and analyze ideas to arrive at the solutions. Teaching staff do not just lecture to students on how to become a nurse— instead, teachers develop and invest their time and expertise to help learners become the best version of themselves; so, as Fatima touches their lives, students also touch the lives of others and heal one life at a time.
