CatSU, EBMC partner to prepare nursing students for RLE


The College of Health Sciences at the Catanduanes State Colleges and the Eastern Bicol Medical Center (EBMC) held an orientation for second, third, and fourth-year students on January 25, 2023, to prepare the students in their Related Learning Experience (RLE).

EBMC OIC Chief Nurse, Ms. Salve Tabo, led the orientation and discussed the hospital's rules and regulations, protocols, and organizational structure with the Bachelor of Science in Nursing students. She also emphasized the importance of charting and answered any questions raised by the students.

Ms. Tabo noted that RLE is a crucial part of the nursing discipline and allows students to apply the theories and knowledge they have learned in the classroom to real-life situations.

EBMC's Dr. Jay Sorreda also spoke about the hospital's Infection and Control, and Prevention Protocols. The hospital has a mandatory orientation policy before students are allowed to start their duties. Dr. Sorreda expressed his satisfaction that the orientation was successfully completed for the students.

"We want to make sure our students are prepared for this learning opportunity that will advance their competencies in various health situations. That's why we are grateful for the support of EBMC in catering to our student nurses for RLE,” Dean Joel S. Olfindo said. #CVecilles
