LGU-run college to offer nursing course

By Paulo DS. Papa

The local government-run City College of Naga has been in preparation for the opening of College of Nursing. Dr. Magno Conag Jr., president of the City College of Naga, announced that the school has started doing certain preparations for the realization of the plan.

CCN is formerly known as the Camarines Sur Community College (CSCC) established in July 1971. General supervision and funds management of CSCC was transferred to the City Government of Naga on March 2003. CSSC was converted into the Naga City Community College in June 2012, and renamed City College of Naga in December 2013.

In an interview, Conag said that right now the school is planning to start at least one section only with more or less 50 students who are residents of the city.

He said the student limit may prevent the school from competing with other colleges and universities in the city that offers the same course.

He emphasized that other colleges and universities generate income from tuition fees and other school fees which is different from the case of the City College of Naga whose services are almost free. Because of that the CCN has to limit the number of its student-beneficiaries.

At present, the CCN offers only midwifery with 338 enrollees for the school year 2022-2023.

In addition, Conag projected the increase of students in school year 2023-2024 that is why he sees the need to open five sections, each has 250 or more students.

He also disclosed that by the end of 2023, CCN students will increase up to 1,000. “By that time, a new school building is being planned to be constructed to accommodate the increasing number of students.

He said, Mayor Nelson Legacion already promised to allocate funds for the construction of a new CCN building which is expected to start in 2024.
