GORDON COLLEGE TOPS ONCE AGAIN
Gordon College (GC) has once again garnered the highest passing rate of 56.97% among the colleges in Olongapo City and nearby communities in the recently held nursing licensure examinations. Gordon College was followed by Metro Subic Colleges with 54.90% while Bataan Peninsula ranked third with 31.06% and RMTU/Aura placed fourth with 27.39% followed by Columban College with 26.09% and Celtech with 24.19% passing rate.
Of the twenty-one GC (21) first-takers, twenty (20) passed while twenty-five (25) repeaters from GC passed from the thirty-three (33) nursing grads who re-took the board.
Meanwhile, aside from besting the colleges in the area, GC also exceeded the national passing rate which is 39%.
The continuous progress and triumphs earned by Gordon College are not only due to the efforts of mentors and administrators of the said college but more so to the unwavering support of the city government led by Mayor James “Bong” Gordon Jr.
“Nagsimula ang Gordon College sa isang pangarap. Ang pangarap na mabigyan ng de-kalidad ngunit abot-kayang edukasyon ang mga kabataang Olongapeño. Ngunit hindi sa mga tagumpay na ito nagtatapos ang pangarap. Nais ko na maging mas malaki, mas malawak pa ang kolehiyong ito, maging unibersidad sa hinaharap kung saan huhubugin ang mga susunod na propesyonal at lider ng pamayanan at lipunan,” said Mayor James “Bong” Gordon Jr.
