The BS in Nursing program of the College started out as a Ladderized Program (BOR Resolution no. 11, s. 2007 and revised per BOR Resolution no. 79, s. 2008.) Then, the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) accredited the two vocational programs in Nursing Assistant and Caregiver which grant students who have passed the TESDA assessment a National Certificate. 

In December 2007, the Department of Nursing Skills Laboratory and Lecture rooms were inaugurated. From then on, the VSU Board of Regents passed BOR resolution no. 73, s. 2009 on the 29th of October, approving the creation of the College of Nursing. Facilities and equipment were set up to meet the minimum standards set by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).
