Program Features
Program curriculum

The program’s curriculum, which is based on the three frameworks: competency, community, and evidence, is the core of its success in producing world class nurses.

Course offerings evolve from a philosophical belief that the goal of nursing is to assist consumers of care to reach their health goals. The nurse uses caring behaviors and the science of nursing to achieve these goals.

The first two years of the program focuses mostly on General Education (GE) courses designed to hone learners’ core competencies such as critical and analytic thinking, oral and written communication skills and independent learning. Using a liberal approach to education, GE courses such as Scholarly Inquiry and Purposive Communication prepare learners for their advanced professional courses and research work required later in the program.

The product then, of FEU’s BSN program, is a nursing leader or a nurse with a potential for leadership who is value driven, a critical thinker, technologically proficient, committed to the profession and who cares very deeply about providing safe, quality, and humane care.

This mission is accomplished through modeling behavior, mentoring, and motivating by faculty members.

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Program prepares graduates to provide and manage client care and to become members of the discipline of Nursing. Graduates are eligible to take the National Licensure Examination given by the Professional Regulations Commission Board of Nursing.

The BSN curriculum at FEU Cavite is structured around a well-defined conceptual framework that integrates general and nursing education. Enhanced by a verdant campus and cutting-edge simulators, the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program provides immersive, hands-on training using advanced simulation tools. This includes a Maternal Care Patient Simulator for a comprehensive birthing experience and a multipurpose nursing skills and CPR life support simulator. These simulators enable students to thoroughly learn care protocols and essential nursing skills, equipping them with valuable experience in managing clients across all age groups in diverse healthcare environments.

Upon completion of the program, students can enroll in the Master of Arts in Nursing (MAN) program, which prepares them for leadership positions in the areas of clinical practice, administration, education, and research.

Well-being and work-life balance is also a key feature of the BSN curriculum. Throughout the program, learners are encouraged to plan their own Wellness and Recreation Program (WRP), a university-wide course which intends to develop their physiological and psycho-social fitness as well as encourage social responsibility and community involvement.

Teaching-Learning Approaches

The BS Nursing program uses various teaching-learning approaches designed to respond to the needs of our students and to empower them as lifelong learners and professionals in the field of nursing and health care. These approaches include the following:

  • Student-centered learning

Following the university’s educational philosophy and learning paradigm, the BSN program uses dynamic and collaborative activities and methods which encourage active learning among our students. These include simulation exercises, project supervision, oral presentations and fieldwork, among others.

  • Didactic approach

The program recognizes the need to develop the students’ theoretical knowledge in nursing practice and other related health disciplines, which can be facilitated through activities such as lectures, discussions and demonstrations.

  • Interdisciplinary approach

The professional courses under BSN allows students to understand and adopt multi-disciplinal lenses from different allied health science fields. Meanwhile, students are also exposed to the humanities and social science disciplines through the liberal structure of the GE curriculum.

  • Blended learning

In recognition of fast-paced technological advancements, the program utilizes online virtual classrooms, self-study modules, video presentations and other ubiquitous learning technologies. FEU utilizes Canvas, a world-class learning management system, to facilitate this mode of delivery.

  • Problem-based learning

The program adopts the use of case studies, situational analysis and problem-solving tools in developing students’ critical thinking skills.

  • Research-based approach

BS Nursing encourages students to develop their research interests and undertake research endeavors in the form of academic papers and presentations throughout their stay in the program. This is designed to nurture their critical thinking skills and inherent curiosity towards scientific inquiry.

Assessment and research work

The BSN program utilizes varied assessments and assessment tasks based on the needs of the students. Under the tenet of academic freedom, teachers and students may freely negotiate their assessment tasks for the course. Teachers are also encouraged to develop relevant formative assessments designed to help learners prepare for capstone summative assessments.

Assessment tools and techniques include summative tests and quizzes, preparation of laboratory reports, case analysis, and practical examinations. Research work is also a common feature among majority of the courses, while the students are also required to perform return demonstration and defend their thesis before they complete the program.


Students must complete 2,754 hours of internship in nursing graduates, which they may complete in partner institutions and affiliates of the university.
