BS Nursing


Riverside College has been synonymous with BS in Nursing since time immemorial. In Negros Occidental, when others ask where you go to college, and you answer, “Riverside College”, they usually ask, “What is your course, Nursing?” 

It may sound funny but there’s a history to that! Riverside College started with the Bachelor of Science in Nursing together with Midwifery. Although the latter is non-existent today, the Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Riverside College continues to be the best nursing school in the entire island if one wants to become a professional nurse.
