About University Of Cebu - Banilad Campus:
University of Cebu-Banilad is a good university and it is very known specially in Nursing. They have students who topped the board and the owner of the school gives incentives to those who will top so the students will strive hard. The atmosphere is good as well as the facilities. Also, they have the best clinical instructors.
About my college education:
Bachelor of Science in Nursing is not an easy course. At first, I had a hard time dealing with the subjects related to science and health. But as time goes by, you will enjoy it. I find it very interesting especially when you start to know those diseases and medical terms that others don't know. Yes, it is very difficult. If you are a nursing student, you are lucky enough if you can have 5 hours of sleep. But as long as you are enjoying what you are doing, everything will follow. You just have to love your course or else you will not make it.
My current job:
As for now, I don't have any job. But I worked as a call center agent before. It is a healthcare account so it's still kind of related to my course.
Am I using what I learned in college:
Yes, the learning, right attitude and the discipline. All of this I applied in my professional career. So, I consider myself very lucky as I was able to graduate in college and in one of the best universities.
How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
It took me 5-6 months before I got my first job. Many of us, nursing graduates ended in call centers because of the high competition and we are so many. Nursing is overpopulated. It's sad to think that you worked so hard to complete the 4 years and yet, you ended up in a work not related to your course.
Do I recommend studying BS in Nursing:
For me, Nursing is not the best choice for now. There are so many unemployed nurses out there and they have no choice but to find a job not related to their course just to earn money. Maybe before, nursing is very in demand but for now? I don't think so. So think twice before entering this course because it will take lots of sacrifices for you to succeed in this field. As what the saying goes, "Many are called but few are chosen." So if you think that Nursing is really the course for you, then go. I have no regrets though because of the experiences and the learning I got from this course. The biggest reward for me is the simple "thank you" from the patients I've taken care of.
