We prayed a lot:
nurse topnotchers


Nursing Licensure Examination topnotchers Nadine Cadeño Sameon, Frances Mae Tupas Baquillos, and Argee Abunda Alonsabe only hoped to pass the examinations and never expected to be in the top 10.

Sameon (4th) got an 87 percent grade, Baquillos (7th) got 86.40 percent, and Alonsabe (8th), 86.40 percent, out of the 37,513 Nursing graduates who took the examination on July 2 and 3. Of the total examinees, 37, 513 passed the exam.

Sameon and Alonsabe are graduates of the University of St. La Salle-Bacolod. Baquillos studied at Riverside College.

Sameon, who plans to become a medical doctor someday, said she will take up medicine at the West Visayas State University in Iloilo and is now preparing for the National Medical Admission Test.

Baquillos, meanwhile, said she is now working on her application to work as a registered nurse and apply what she learned at the Riverside College.

Alonsabe plans to work as a researcher with the RGO review center where he and Sameon took their intensive review and by June next year, plans to take up medicine also at the WVSU.

All three top 10 passers said prayers helped them a lot.*LTG
