Rafael T. Salinas | Cynthia R. Acosta
Abstract: Nursing education in the Philippines has been revised into a more demanding and more rigorous program. The readiness of the students to take on the challenges of the nursing program in the tertiary level is very significant among the students. The scientific literacy of the incoming students in the program can play high influence on this readiness. The study utilized validated examinations and instruments to measure the scientific literacy of the students through a diagnostic examination. The result of this examination was correlated to their academic and skills laboratory examination scores of the students. The correlated data showed how the readiness of these students can influence their academic and skills laboratory performance. Results show that high level of correlation between the scientific literacy and the academic and skills laboratory scores among 127 students. This shows that high scientific literacy is a better situation and foundation among students who will be taking the nursing as a specialization in their tertiary education.
