I. PREFACE Many hands and minds worked to come up with this Nursing Student Manual. The regulatory measures (known as “control measures” in the past) were painstakingly reviewed and updated by the nursing faculty and the dean in 2009. The printing of the first edition of the manual was initiated by the dean and nursing faculty in 2011 and every nursing student will be provided a copy.
There have been significant developments in the Iloilo Doctors’ College of Nursing as well as curricular innovations affecting the nursing program. Therefore, it is imperative that the student manual be made to keep abreast with these changes. It includes essential information about academic life in the college, in general and in the College of Nursing, in particular.
I commend the nursing faculty especially Ms. Candelaria P. Hojilla, Mrs. Maria Lorna D. Loza and Mrs. Kathrine M. Lacorte for facilitating the initial version of the handbook. This handbook is indispensable paraphernalia of nursing students. I strongly recommend that the regulatory measures be carefully studied and remembered by students to make their life in the College hassle-free and memorable.
MRS. LERINA T. ALABADO, R.N.,Ed.D Dean, College of Nursing 5

III. THE FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE PLEDGE
The Florence Nightingale Pledge I solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly, To pass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully. I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous, And will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug. I will do in my power to maintain and elevate the standard of my profession And will hold in confidence all personal matters committed to my keeping And all family affairs coming to my knowledge in the practice of my calling. With loyalty will I endeavor to work closely with the health team, And devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care. So help me God.
IV. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND The Iloilo Doctors’ College was established on February 13,1972 as the Iloilo Doctors’ Hospital School of Nursing and Midwifery, initially offering the three-year Graduate in Nursing Course and the 18th-month course in Midwifery. It opened its doors to the first Nursing and Midwifery students in June,1972. At its inception, the school functioned as the educational arm of the ILOILO DOCTORS’ HOSPITAL (IDH) which was founded the year before. After a year of operation, the members of the IDH, Incorporated decided that it would be more efficient, practical and financially convenient to organize a sister corporation which will own and operate the new school. Hence, the INTEGRATED EDUCATIONAL CORPORATION, ILOILO or IECI was formed subsequently approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 9,1973. With new capital funds generated by the new corporation, the construction of additional and permanent concrete buildings and expansion of the existing facilities were undertaken on the school site behind IDH. Later, a 1,200-seat College Gymnasium and a 50 x 25 feett swimming pool and bathhouse were built on the nearby extension campus in Timawa Avenue. The first Midwifery students graduated in March, 1974 followed by the graduation of the first Nursing students on March 15,1975. The Medical Secretarial Course was also opened in 1974. On June 2, 1975 the graduate in Nursing and Midwifery Courses were given government recognition. In the same school year, 1975-1976, the IDH School opened a Liberal Arts Department. As a consequence , the IDH School of Nursing and Midwifery was granted college status and formally became the present ILOILO DOCTORS’ COLLEGE after due approval by the Department of Education (now DECS) and the Securities and Exchange Commission. The School was therefore now able to offer another baccalaureate program, the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Course, during the same year and the G.N. program was gradually phased out. The ensuing years from 1976 to 1981 saw the offering of new courses and programs mostly in the paramedical and health fields, such as the BSN Supplemental Course, Health Aide, Radiologic Technology, B.S. Biological Science ( Pre-Medicine) and PreDentistry. In addition other courses were also opened, namely, B.S. Social Work, B.S. Tourism, High School and Kindergarten. Later, several of the above courses were phased out or discontinued so that at
present only the courses in the Biological Science, Nursing, Radiologic Technology, Midwifery, Pre-dentistry, Medical Secretarial Health Aide remain. In July, 1981 the ILOILO DOCTORS’ COLLEGE OF MEDICINE was opened in consortium with the West Visayas State College (WVSC), a government school in Iloilo City, in answer to the need for more physicians to take care of the health needs of the small urban and rural populations of the country. The Medical School was housed in the second and third floors of the IDC Administrative Building. Two years after, during the school year 1983-1984, the Ministry (now Department) of Education, Culture and Sports granted the College of Medicine a separate permit making it autonomous and independent from WVSC. On March 30,1985 the College of Medicine graduated its first doctors who passed the physician licensure (board) examination the following year with 100% passing mark. On July 24,1987, the College of Medicine was established as a non stock, nonprofit educational corporation independent of the IDC and became officially known as the Iloilo Doctors’ College of Medicine, Inc. On June 1982, The School of Dentistry was opened to meet the need for dentists in this part of the country. It was set up at the extension campus in Timawa Avenue where the College Gymnasium is located. The School graduated its first dentists on April 1,1986. The expansion of the educational operations of the IDC necessitated substantial additions to its physical plant and facilities. In 1985 an extension of the left wing of the Administration Building was constructed to house the IDC Medical and College Libraries, additional instructional laboratories and offices of the College of Medicine and the IECI. In early 1983 a three-storey concrete building was constructed in South Timawa Campus which was later assigned to the College of Nursing. During the recent years, the performance of the IDC and IDCM graduates in the licensure or board examinations has been remarkable, with passing percentages often higher than the national average and with topnotchers in Midwifery, Nursing, Dentistry and medicine. The IDC graduates have also taken their places in their respective professional fields both public and private. The ILOILO DOCTORS’ COLLEGE continues to expand, to innovate, to evolve and to meet the academic and professional development needs demanded by our changing times and national goals. In effect, from 1993 to 1995,IDC opened additional courses and
programs such as Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Technology, TwoYear Computer Secretarial, Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy, Bachelor of Science in Commerce and Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology in pursuance of its primary objective of “HEALTH MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT IN THE SERVICE OF THE COMMUNITY’. In 2000, Iloilo Doctors’ College opened its door to Pre-School and Kindergarten with the opening of the Child Learning Center. In 2004 to meet the increasing number of students enrolling in the Nursing Program, the College constructed another three storey building at the College of Nursing Campus. The building likewise housed the School of Midwifery Lying-in-Clinic In 2005, a covered gymnasium was built to serve as a venue for the various cultural and athletic co-curricular activities of the college such as the annual literary musical contests(Litmus) and the Hinampang. The gym likewise served as site for the Regional PRISAA Meet. An extension of the Administration Building is presently towards completion. The edifice will be the new location of the Business Office, Office of the Registrar, The MIS Internet Library and other offices as well. The new building is envisioned to provide additional space for the comfort and convenience of all school stakeholders- the students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni and the larger community. Presently, first floor rooms are used as lecture rooms/classrooms for students. In response to the needs of the time and with the advancement of technology, new academic programs were offered such as BS in Criminology, BS in Information Technology, BS in Information Management and BS in Computer Science. Iloilo Doctors’ College continues to yield topnotchers in Board Examinations in Midwifery, Nursing, Dentistry, Medicine, Radiologic Technology and Medical Technology. IDC graduates continue to find gainful employment in their respective professional fields both in the private and public sectors in the local, regional and global markets.

IX. ADMISSION, PROMOTION AND RETENTION POLICIES AND STANDARDS A. GENERAL POLICIES: Every applicant for admission to the College of Nursing baccalaureate program must meet the requirements for admission set and required by Iloilo Doctors’ College and the College of Nursing. The Iloilo Doctors’ College, College of Nursing (IDC-CN) strives towards excellence by adopting standards of academic and clinical performance to which its nursing students must aspire. In pursuance of this basic goal, the IDC-CN has adopted these policies and standards for admission, promotion and retention of its students to or in the Nursing Course: 1.
The IDC College of Nursing admits only student applicants who have completed the prescribed secondary (high school) course and complied with the other requirements needed for admission to a baccalaureate program.
The IDC College of Nursing reserves the right to set the number of students who can be adequately taken care of in the Nursing Program based on the faculty and clinical facilities of training agencies available to it. As a consequence of this constraint the school must adopt specific standards of performance in the academic and clinical areas such as the adoption of cut-off grades required for admission to or continued enrollment in the Nursing course.
In the admission of students, first preference is given as a general rule, to single high school graduates who have not been previously admitted to college. Other students may be admitted subject to availability of slots in the program.
The Nursing students must maintain a high level of academic and clinical performance in the course not only because of the school’s avowed pursuit of excellence but more so because the IDC College of Nursing believes that it is its moral obligation to graduate only nurses with a practical and reasonable proficiency in Nursing knowledge and skills. This means that the student must obtain a rating higher than the minimum passing grade of 75%. This is necessary because in Nursing and health care professions the care of the sick, especially the
seriously ill, cannot be entrusted to students and/or future professionals with only a minimum or slightly better performance in the professional or ethical subjects.
In pursuance of this principle, the IDC College of Nursing therefore adopts a cut-off grade of 2.5 in any Nursing Professional or Nursing-related subjects in order for the student to be eligible for promotion to the next level. It therefore reserves the right to require the students to repeat a Nursing subject if he/she obtains a grade lower than the above minimum standard. At the end of each semester a committee of faculty members will assess whether a student will be allowed to continue the Nursing course, or if he/she will be asked to transfer to another course based on his/her performance in the clinical and other areas as evidenced by his/her General Average.
The IDC-CN requires a student to take the Nursing Aptitude Test (NAT) before a student is promoted to the 2nd year level as part of the requirement for ranking.
The IDC-CN reserves the right to drop students from the Nursing course if he/she incurs: 1) Failure: a) one failure in any Nursing or Nursing-related subject, or b) failure in two minor subjects during any curriculum year, or c) failure twice in the same subject
The IDC-CN reserves the right not to accept transferees with failure (5.0) in any Nursing professional/Nursing related subject.
As a general rule, single applicants are given 1st priority. The possibility of pregnancy, sickness in the family, and marital problems may make the prospective married Nursing students unable to attend to her academic and clinical duties, not to mention the administrative problems that may be caused by her disrupted training schedule and special adjustments to be made. These applicants must submit their marriage contract and waiver stating that she should not get pregnant during the entire course. Such waiver should be signed by the husband, the applicant, and the applicant’s parents and must be duly notarized.
Qualified students who fail to enroll in a semester for valid reasons should notify the office in writing before leaving the college and if he/she will come back, should notify the office not later than two months before the start of the succeeding semester of their intention to re-enroll. This is for the purpose of informing the office earlier so that slots could be reserved for them. Otherwise, their chances of being accepted in the said semester will be forfeited.
The student is expected at all times to earn good grades both in academic and clinical performance. He/she must comply with the laws, policies, rules and regulations, and lawful orders of the IDC and the College of Nursing and its affiliate training institution, as well as those of the CHED and other regulatory government agencies.

XIII.CAPPING AND CANDLELIGHTING CEREMONY A. Capping and Candle Lighting Ceremony 1.
The Capping and Candlelighting Ceremony is a very remarkable ceremony in every nursing student as he/she prepares himself/herself to embrace a very noble profession which is the nursing profession. The nurse’s cap always plays a special constituent of the nurse’s uniform. In the entire existence of the Nursing Profession, the nurse’s cap is believed to be the emblem of responsibility, superior knowledge and humane attitude of the individual who wears it. It is worn for adornment and symbolic reasons and carries a personal commitment to the Nursing Profession.
It would seem inappropriate for male nursing students to be conferred a nursing cap, instead, a nurse’s pin is ceremonially clipped to the left collar of the hospital uniform of every male nursing student. The nurse’s pin carries the same significance as the female’s nursing cap.
The Capping and Candlelighting Ceremony is a very significant and momentous ceremony which gives a student
nurse the opportunity to show his/her acceptance, dedication and commitment to the responsibilities and accountabilities of the nursing profession. Every student nurse marches towards his/her instructor/s and humbly kneeled on the pew to receive his/her most aspired nurse’s cap or pin and candle. He/she will then light his/her candle on his/her lamp as emblem of his/her acceptance of the charge of the nursing profession. The Candle lighting symbolizes the light that came from the Lady of the Lamp, who started the sparkle of hope for the nursing profession and showed the world the extraordinary deed her caring heart and hand can do. The lamp lingers an emblem of HOPE for all in the nursing profession: Hope for love, understanding and life. 4.
A student nurse is very much aware that this significant event in his/her journey to the nursing profession is to be labouredly earned and achieved. He/she is aware that a student nurse must possess recognizable qualities in order to be eligible for the very remarkable ceremony.
The qualifications and requirements are as follows: A student nurse must: a.
Satisfactorily passed all his/her subjects required in the Nursing Curriculum in the semester immediately preceding the Capping and Candlelighting Ceremony . Endowed desirable qualities befitting of a nurse such as responsible, diligent, conscientious, committed, humble, prudent and compassionate.

superiors fasten a college pin to the left collar of his/her prescribed white gala nursing uniform. The Class Ring, College Pin and white Gala Nursing Uniform symbolize his/her loyalty to the nursing profession and to the Alma Mater where he/she satisfactorily completed his/her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. 2.
