LEYTE Rep. Yedda Marie Kittilstvedt-Romualdez yesterday congratulated the Remedios T. Romualdez Medical Foundation (RTRMF)-College of Nursing in Tacloban City, the school that nursed and housed Yolanda victims, for producing three of the top 10 passers in the 2018 nursing licensure exam and posting a 100 percent passing rate.
“The RTRMF has been a center of excellence for consistently topping the board for 11 consecutive years,” said Romualdez, a registered nurse and chairperson of the House Committee on Accounts.
“Congratulations to the graduates and officials of the RTRMF for topping the latest 2018 nursing licensure exam. Truly, the school is the center of academic excellence,” added Romualdez, first nominee of Tingog Sinirangan Party-list, in lauding RTRMF-College of Nursing Dean Socorro Salvacion Gasco and her 25 graduates, including the topnotchers from the batch Onyx 2018 for passing the exam.
“Continue to soar high because your great minds would further inspire many students from different parts of the country to excel,” said Romualdez, wife of Philippine Constitution Association (Philconsa) President Martin Romualdez who is a lawyer and a three-term Leyte congressman.
Gasco named their three graduates in the top 10 passers as Kathryn Angelie Bugho, who ranked second with a score of 86.80% while Angelae Priscilla Cahilig placed seventh with 85.40% and Arianne Grapilon was at 9th place with 85%.
“We have efficient faculty members, we have highly motivated students, we have been implementing correctly the curriculum plus the support of the RTR and with the glory of God,” Gasco said in an interview.
“Another feather in our cap,” said Gasco in thanking and acknowledging the support of Mrs. Juliette Gomez-Romualdez, the Romualdez couple for their continued and committed “malasakit” (compassion) in supporting and helping the graduates of RTRMF to excel.
