This time, Jelyn Sunga-Guadalupe who graduated from Cor Jesu College in Digos Citymade it. She was among the 1,724 who passed the bar examinations out of the 6,748 who took the exams, a 25.5-percent passing rate—lower than the 59.06 percent in 2016 and 26.21 percent in 2015.

When asked about how it feels that she is now in the ranks of nurse-lawyers, "it so surreal. I prayed so hard for this. I feel I can better serve the community now but I will still be a nurse. Once a nurse, forever a nurse", she said.

It was cheers and jubilation to the Society and also for the nursing profession since Jelyn was among many registered nurses who passed the tough legal examinations.

Does her nursing degree prepare her for the rigorous legal studies? "Definitely yes! I could not think of a better preparatory course in law school than nursing. Nursing taught me to be alert, focused under pressure. It developed my habit for reading and most of all to stay awake during holy hours", she further said.

Jelyn is a product of St. Alexius College in Koronadal for her BSN degree. Prior to her legal studies, she worked as a volunteer nurse for 2 years at South Cotabato Provincial Hospital and a staff nurse at Mindanao Medical Center. She likewise worked as part-time reviewer at St. Louis Review Center and a review facilitator of St. Alexius College.
