The Bachelor of Science in Nursing at the Visayas State University (VSU) started when it was offered as a Ladderized Program on June 2007. On December 2007, the Department of Nursing Skills Laboratory and Lecture rooms were inaugurated.

To gain full recognition of the ladderized program, TESDA has accredited and recognized the two Vocational Programs (TechVoc), namely: Nursing Assistant and Caregiver. Thus, the student could have Certificate of Nursing Assistant and after two years of the taking the program upon passing TESDA examination.

On October 29, 2009, the VSU Board of Regents approved the creation of the College of Nursing. Facilities are continuously being transferred to support the changing needs of a college that aims to provide education excellence.
