This study investigated the experiences of the Nursing students in rendering community service. It is aimed to provide baseline data on the status of the Community Service Program of the College of Nursing, University of Baguio.

However, areas that need to be improved were identified and these involve technicalities of the course, communication and interaction skills of the students and confidence of the students in identifying and establishing the needs priorities and health status of their clientele.
