Abstract

The study aimed to determine the factor's affecting the performance of graduates in NLE, specifically, the profile of the graduates such as: performance in the NLE, gender, pre admission profile and the performance in the nursing course; relationship between the profile and the performance in the NLE; and predictors to passing the NLE. This is a descriptive-correlational research conducted in the Bicol University College of Nursing, that made use of the secondary data of 247 graduates of 2003 to 2007 who took the NLE, who were selected by stratified random sampling. Fifty eight % of the graduates passed the NLE; passers of the NLE are 50% males and 60 % female; with a very satisfactory to superior pre admission profile and superior performance in nursing course. There is a positive correlation between the NLE rating and the profile of the graduates. Among the profile, the academic performance is the best predictor in the NLE. Therefore students with excellent pre admission profile who performs well in the nursing course are most likely to pass the NLE. It is imperative for the college to adhere to the admission policies and to institute teaching-learning strategies to assist the students achieve an excellent academic performance thereby passing the NLE.
