The College of Nursing had a starting population of 524 students during the first semester of the school year 1975-1976 and a population of 533 on the second semester of the same year. The population doubled on the 2nd year of College of Nursing with a population of 1,001 on its 1st semester.The expansion of University facilities addressed the increase in population of the College.

In 1986-1990, another Nursing Arts Laboratory at Generosa De Leon Science Center was constructed and new beds and mannequins were acquired. An amphitheater style gives the students a view of nursing demonstration procedures.

At that time, there were 18 affiliated hospitals, 5 lying –in centers, 37 health centers and 7 communities and the highest board passing rate of 95%

The University commitment to academic excellence led to the accreditation of the College of Nursing and Social Work with the Philippine Accrediting Association of the Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU). The preliminary survey happened on February 18 and 19 year 1988 and the initial formal survey was conducted on February 15 and 16 year 1990.

In 2000 and at present, Dean Merlina V. Locquiao was appointed as the third dean of the College with the commitment to high level of quality nursing education and nursing practice in the global community.

It was on the 2nd semester of the school year 1999-2000 when the college of Nursing got its lowest number of enrollees with a population of 289. On the 1st semester of the school year 2005, the College of Nursing achieved its highest number of enrollees, with a population of 3,758, since the implementation of the AHSE Program from 1975-2005.

The students are enrolled for two years as Associate Health Science Education (AHSE) students. After graduation from the AHSE program, they will enter the BSN curriculum which requires them to finish another two years being BSN student.

At present the curriculum under the CMO No. 14 Series of 2009 (Policies and Standards for Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program) captures the whole new concept of the nursing profession to produce the most competent and highly competitive nursing graduates in the country. It focuses on the core values of caring as the core of nursing and 11 key areas of responsibility as competencies that a nurse should perform.

On the December 2002 Board Examination, the College of Nursing achieved 93% passing rate that elevated it as one of the top performing schools in the Nursing Board Examination in 2006 -2008 for more than 200 examinees and second top performing school for 1000 examinees in 2009 to 2010.

Since the establishment of the College of Nursing, community outreach programs have been part of the College activities in collaboration with the University activities. The community immersion program started in 1998 on a partnership with the adopted municipality of Naic, Cavite and presently it has expanded to the municipalities of Ternate in Cavite, Sto. Tomas, Malvar, and Laurel in Batangas in order to deliver the primary health care services to the community people.

For almost 35 years, the CEU College of Nursing remains to be stable and further strive for excellence because of the dedication and hard work of the Deans, faculty, students and the administration.
