Two working days after the test, the PRC released the result with 68.296 percent or 838 out of 1,227 takers who passed the licensure exam which was administered on September 17 and 18 in testing centers in Manila, Baguio, Davao, and Zamboanga.
The eight pioneering graduates of NEU who achieved the feat are: Melanie Joy F. Alcala, Ghenie Ann D. Bersamira, Jean Pierre P. Conception, Angela Marie F. Gabalfin, Christine Joy D. Gorospe, Monina Chantille L. Martinez, Marielle Ester O-L. Mayoralgo, and Ma. Kate Lyn Anne L. Salvador.
