Through its allied health services, it started as a School of Nursing and St. Jude Maternity Clinic in 1950.

Atienza, Jr. and wife, Dr. Felicidad Calip-Atienza, Expanded the Maternity Clinic from a two-storey building to a five-storey building with a 120-bed capacity. Later, they built an eight-storey building to house the growing School of Nursing. The two edifices were inaugurated on the feast day of St. Jude Thaddeus on October 28, 1968. As a result, the Maternity Clinic was elevated to the status of a College for consistently producing outstanding students and exemplary topnotchers in the licensure or board examinations since 1971.
