College of Nursing graduates who visited the Dean's office were asked to answer the mailed out questionnaire. The others were interviewed through phone or asked to answer the mailed out questionnaire or answer those posted in the internet. Results shows that graduates are in various stages of professional growth and 97% of them are still working locally. Forty percent of the graduates got employed within 12 months after graduation and 53% work in private hospitals earning a meagre income. Prospective employ prioritized English language proficiency in hiring nursing applicants. Nursing Care Management poses a significant strength strength in the alumni's career/ professional performance in their line of work. Nursing Alumni should pursue post graduate programs to enhance their educational preparation and employability. The University should hold more training programs and job fair to help graduates find a job. It should also provide potential employers information about the competence of the graduates.
