Abstract

     This study was designed to serve as the graduate tracer study of nursing graduates in UPHSL batch 2015.


        Specifically, the study based into the respondent's college experience in terms of learner engagement, teaching quality, student support services, and their overall college experience; nursing licensure examination in terms of the results of NP1, NP2, NP3, NP4, and NP5; and employability based employment history.


         The study utilized the descriptive-correlation method using convenience sampling with the total sample respondents of 32. Data were obtained through a questionnaire among the graduates of Bachelor of Science in Nursing Batch 2015. Descriptive method was used to determine the college experience, nursing licensure examination, and employability of graduates while correlational method was used to determine if the college experience of nursing graduates of UPHSL Batch 2015 have significant relationship with their nursing licensure examination, if the college experience of nursing graduates of UPHSL Batch 2015 have significant relationship with their employment, if the nursing licensure examination results have significant relationship with their employment.


            The summary of findings of the college experience of nursing graduates of UPHSL batch 2015 in terms of learner engagement was moderate with an average weighted mean of 2.66; in terms of student support services was sometimes with an average weighted mean of 2.17; and in terms of overall college experience, the respondents had agree with an average weighted mean of 2.83.


            The nursing licensure examination ratings of nursing graduates of UPHSL batch 2015 in terms of test subject NP 1 had most of the respondents, 18 (66.67%) have a good nursing licensure examination with an average within the range of 78-81 while 1 (3.70%) have an excellent nursing licensure examination with an average within the range of 88 and above; in terms of test subject NP 2 had most of the respondents, 15 (55.56%) have a good nursing licensure examination with an average within the range of 78-81 while 1 (3.70%) have a very good nursing licensure with an average within the range of 82-87; in terms of test subject NP 3 had most of the respondents, 9 (33.33%) have a failed nursing licensure examination with an average within the range of 74 and below while 4 (14.81%) have a very good nursing licensure examination with an average within the range of 82-87; in terms of of test subject NP 4 had most of the respondents, 13 (48.15%) have a good nursing licensure examination with average within the range 78-81 while the other respondents got 88 and above and the other got 82-87 of average, both have equal percentage of (3.70%) and ahve an excellent and very good nursing licensure examination; in terms of subject NP 5 had most of the respondents, 21 (77.78%) have failed nursing licensure examination with an average within the range of 74 and below while 2 (7.41%) have a good nursing licensure examination with an average within the range of 78-81. 


              The respondent's employment profile in terms of employment history was within 4 months to 9 months with an average weighted weighted mean of 1.87. 


                The relationship between College Experience in terms of learner engagement and nursing licensure examination of nursing practice 1, 2, 3, 4,  and 5 has been confirmed through the computed value of Pearson r values of -.278. -o.14, -0.26, -o.21, -0.28 were respectively acquired, which were lower than 0.38 tabular value at the degree of freedom equivalent to 25 and interpreted as weak relationship. Finding for its significance, computed t values of -1.48, -0.73, -1.33, -1.10, -1.45 respectively were obtained, which were lower than 2.060 critical value at 0.05 level of significance and indicated as not significant. Null hypothesis will be accepted.


                    The relationship between College Experience in terms of teaching qualities and nursing licensure examination of nursing practice, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 has been confirmed through the computed value Pearson r values of 0.11,-0.15, -0.10, -0.15, -0.01 were respectively acquired, which were lower than 0.38 tabular value at the degree of freedom equivalent to 25 and interpreted as very weak relationship. Finding the for its significance, computed t values of -0.55, -0.75, -0.74, -0.04 respectively were obtained, which were lower than 2.060 critical value at 0.04 respectively were obtained, which were lower than 2.060 critical value at 0.05 level of significance and indicated as not significant. Null hypothesis will be accepted.


                        The relationship between college experience in terms of student support service and nursing licensure examination of nursing practice, 1, 2, ,3 ,4 and 5 has been confirmed through the computed value of Pearson r values of 0.00, -0.10, - 0.19, -0.07, - 0.31 were respectively acquired, which were lower than 0.38 tabular value of the degree of freedom equivalent, to 25 and interpreted as very weak relationship. Finding the for its significance computed t values of 0.01, -0.51, - 0.95, -0.33, -1.64 respectively were obtained, which were lower than 2.060 critical value of 0.05 level of significance and indicated as not significant. Null hypothesis will be accepted.


                          The relationship between college experience in terms of overall college experience and nursing licensure examination of nursing practice 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 has been confirmed through the computed value of Pearson r values of -0.08, -0.00, -0.14, -0.15, -0.02 were respectively acquired, which were lower than 0.38 tabular value of the degree of freedom equivalent to 25 and interpreted as very weak relationship. Finding the for its significance, computed t values of -0.40, -0.01, -0.63, -0.26, -1.09 respectively were obtained, which were loer than 2.060 critical value at 0.05 level of significance and indicated as not significant. Null hypothesis will be accepted.


                            The computed Pearson r in college experience in terms of learner engagement, teaching quality, student support system and overall college experience between employability status were obtained respectively with a Pearson r values of -0.10, -0.13, -0.07, -0.28 were less than the tabular value of 0.38 and were interpreted as very weak in relation. To find for its significance computed t values of -0.49, -0.64, -0.35, -1.44 were acquired respectively, results were lower than the critical value of 2.060 and were interpreted as not significant. Null hypothesis will be accepted.


                                   The relationship between the respondent's nursing licensure examination of nursing practice 1, 2, 3, 4,  to their employability status shows very weak relationship excepting nursing practice 5 which shows moderate relationship. The computed Pearson r values of 0.09, 0.02, 0.25, 0.10 were respectively obtained for nursing practice, 1, 2, 3, and 4 while a Pearson or r value of 0.41 for nursing practice 5. The significant results were acquired respectively through  the computed t values of 0.48, 0-08, 1.28, 0.52 for  nursing practice 1,2,3 and 4 while for nursing practice 5 has obtained a t value of 2.27 which were interpreted as not significant excepting nursing practice 5 that was interpreted as significant.


                                           Based on the findings of the study, the researchers concluded that the College Experience of nursing graduates of UPHSL batch 2015 in terms of Learner engagement was experienced moderate; teaching quality was experienced as always; student support service was experienced as sometimes; and overall college experienced as agreed.


                                              Majority of the nursing graduates in UPHSL batch 2015 had a good result in nursing licensure exam although there were 5 respondents who no not take the NLE.


                                                      The respondent's employment profile in terms of its employability history was within 4 months to 9 months, therefore, respondents seek their desired jobs as soon as they graduate.


                                                     College experience has no significance to the Nursing Licensure Examination results of nursing graduates in UPHSL batch 2015. College experience of nursing graduates in UPHSL is independent and has no influence to their employment. Nursing licensure examination results of nursing graduates in UPHSL batch 2015 has no influence to their employment except for NP5.


                                                      Based on conclusions, the researchers recommend that the College of Nursing should conduct activities that will improve the relationship among nursing students. The students should continuously be molded with the help of their clinical instructors, the weak points should strengthened and give emphasis and their strength should be continuously practiced for the betterment of their college experience. The student support services must provide the best way to utilize or maximize the resources available to deliver a more accommodating and conducive place for students to learn. Also, the students should learn more from a vast collection of knowledge, and should not depend on the general knowledge that they've learned. The previous nursing licensure examination questions should be discussed frequently in class and incorporated in long examination of the nursing students to serve as their review.Furthermore, the students should learn how to market themselves with the support of seminars than can enhance their confidence and capabilities. Nursing students must show interest and must act on their outmost performance as possible. Lastly, the future researchers of the same study should engage themselves in conducting and tracing the previous graduates in efficient and effective manner for them to achieve a very satisfactory result.
