Patroness

St. Elizabeth Hungary

Feast Day: November 17

Born in 1207, Saint Elizabeth was the daughter of King Alexander II and Gertrude who came from the Counts of Andechs-Meran.

At the age of 14, she was married to Louis who supported Saint Elizabeth in her charitable acts and service to the poor. But later on, the death of her husband became a turning point in her life, and she took vows similar to a nun’s. Soon, she became a tertiary of Saint Francis.

Saint Elizabeth built a hospital in Marburg. During her last days, she devoted her time in helping the sick. At a very young age, she died on November 17, 1231.  Pope Gregory IX canonized her on May 27, 1235.

Known as the patron Saint of Bakers, her image is often associated with loaves of bread, for, in spite of her wealthy and royal life, she was depicted as a princess who lived in simplicity, never failing to share her blessings to the poor.

Even after her death, it was reported that miracles, especially of healing, have taken place in her tomb.

History

The UST College of Nursing is a Center of Excellence in Catholic Nursing Education. The first Nursing Educational Program in the country was offered by this University as Escuela de Practicantes in 1879.

The first Nursing Educational Program in the country was offered by the University of Santo Tomas as Escuela de Practicantes, from 1879 to 1904, a School of Home Nursing then opened in 1939, but was closed at the outbreak of the 2nd World War in 1941.

The present course offering is the Philippines’ first Basic Collegiate Baccalaureate Programme instituted in February 12, 1946. The four-year curriculum is outcome-based and designed to prepare a professional nurse to render nursing care to individuals, families, and groups in any setting, at any stage of the health-illness continuum.

As one of the country’s top nursing schools, the UST College of Nursing has consistently produced the highest number of passers and topnotchers in the Philippine Nursing Licensure Exams given by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC). Thomasian nurses, here and abroad, continue to make their mark as competent, committed and compassionate nursing leaders, educators and practitioners.

At present, the University of Santo Tomas College of Nursing is a Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Center of Excellence in Nursing Education with a PACUCOA Level III accredited BSN Program.
