CEBU CITY, Philippines - Mandaue City College will no longer offer its nursing course along with two other programs, the school's board of trustees announced.

Susana Cabahug, designated officer-in-charge of the school, said that the board decided to discontinue from second semester, the following courses: Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Bachelor of Science in Electronics and Communications Engineering, and Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering.

“Students enrolled in these programs are advised to shift to other courses offered in Mandaue City College or transfer to other schools,” the announcement read.

The decision was reached upon the recommendation of the Regional Quality Assessment Team of the Commission on Higher Education, Cabahug said. He said the assessment team ordered the school to abide by the requirements of the three courses.

“But it is very difficult for the school to comply with the requirements because we cannot afford the equipment required like an affiliate hospital (for nursing), and radio equipment facilities (for the engineering courses),” Cabahug said.

Paulus Mariae Cañete, the college president, however, opposes the decision of the board because the decision was reached without consulting him as vice chairman of the board.

His spokesman, Edgar Agustino said “we are not going to obey that. We will not stop offering the nursing program and other courses because we will be violating the contract of the school and the students.”

Cañete and Agustino said only Cabahug and Mayor Jonas Cortes attended the board meeting, but employees association president, supreme student government president, alumni association president, faculty association president, as well as the two prominent citizen members of the board were not present.
