The Far Eastern University Institute of Nursing is one of the top performing nursing schools in the Philippines in terms of Philippine Nurse Licensure Examination performance and employment into various nursing settings.[citation needed] It currently offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree that qualifies the graduate to take the Philippine Board Licensure Examination. Its Virtual Integrated Nursing Education Simulation (VINES) Laboratory was the first nursing virtual laboratory in the Philippines and the second in Asia.

The Institute of Nursing offers programs leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing and a Master of Arts degree in Nursing.

With the VINES Laboratory (Virtual Integrated Nursing Education Simulation) in full operation, IN aims to teach nursing skills iteratively and sequentially without harming patients. It seeks to become the Center for Excellence in Nursing Simulation in the Philippines and Asia.[2]

The Institute of Nursing in 1955. Initially it offered a three-year diploma program leading to a non-degree Graduate in Nursing (GN), with Teofista G. Villarica as its first principal.

By second semester a two year Advance professional Program (supplemental program) was offered, a post-basic program designed to provide graduates of the GN program opportunities to broaden their knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the profession. Lucrecia Llanera was the first directress of the new program.

In 1960, Felicidad D. Elegado was appointed principal of both programs. About this time, the School of Nursing was elevated to the status of an Institute with Elegado as first dean. To upgrade the curriculum, the three-year course was converted to a five-year baccalaureate program leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN).

Upon the retirement of Dean Egelado in 1978, the then Institute secretary, Lydia A. Palaypay, assumed deanship. The five-year baccalaureate program was converted to the revised four-year BSN curriculum. Under her administration, the nursing curriculum became more competency-based and community health-centered, closely attuned to the needs of contemporary Philippine society.

Upon the appointment of Dean Palaypay as the vice president for Academic Affairs in 1994, Prof. Norma M. Dumadag took over as dean of the Institute. Under her stewardship, the Institute has attained Level II PAASCU standards of CMO No. 27 series of 1998, the BSN curriculum was reconfigured effective SY 1998-1999, which required the student to undergo two years of Associate in Health Science Education (AHSE).

Because of the consistent and sterling performance of nursing graduates in the licensure exams over the years and after complying with the CHED's requirements on Graduate Education, the Institute of Graduate Studies was certified to offer a master's degree in Nursing effective SY 2002-2003.

Graduates of the Institute of Nursing occupy key positions in different health institutions in the country such as the UP PGH, St Luke's Medical Center, Makati Medical Center, National Kidney Center, and Philippine heart Center; as well as abroad (such as in the United States, Canada, Europe and the Middle East).

In December 2006, FEU-IN established virtual nursing laboratory in the Philippines through its Virtual Integrated Nursing Education Simulation (VINES) under the Deanship of Dean Borromeo.
