By Jason B. Neola


Twenty-three students from the City College of Naga (CCN) were commended by the city government of Naga for passing the national midwifery board examinations conducted on Nov. 6-7, last year.

Dr. Magno S. Conag Jr., CCN director, said the students’ feat has brought pleasure and pride on the part of the city government.


“Our board examinees were able to achieve 74.19 percent, one thing that the school and the city government can be proud of as it surpasses the national passing percentage of 42.92,” he said.


The 23 board passers who are now licensed midwives are timetabled to pursue Bachelor of Science in Midwifery after completing the Diploma in Midwifery, a two-year course, where they are currently enrolled.


The school official said that at present they are aiming to increase the number of enrollees who wish to take up either of the two courses. “We are targeting at least 400 to 600 enrollees this incoming school year,” he said.


CCN which plans to offer Bachelor of Science in Office Administration this year, is all set for its relocation to an ideal site along the Almeda highway next month. The new site can accommodate several hundreds of students including trainees on slaughtering course. The school has 32 butchering trainees who will graduate in September this year.


Preparations with regard to CCN’s offering of new courses like BS Pharmacy, BS Radiologic Technology, and BS Medical Technology are now being undertaken.


At present, the school is conducting entrance examinations for incoming first year students. Conag said that an examinee must be a senior high school graduate and got at least a score of 50 percent in the exams to be able to qualify for enrollment.


“We are not requiring enrollees to submit their report cards upon their enrolment as it will be all right if the document will be presented to us right after school year 2021-2022 in the month of June.
