Kapuso Actor Rocco Nacino keeps adding notches to his belt.
Fresh from the success of his runway appearance at the recently concluded Bench Under the Stars underwear and fashion show, Rocco wore his student hat today, November 21.
Rocco, who took his Master of Arts in Nursing while busy with acting projects and business ventures, presented his thesis to a panel of deans/doctors at St. Bernadette of Lourdes College in Fairview, Quezon City.
In a series of Instagram stories, Rocco documented his day as a graduate student.
His first post showed a short video of the room where he was about to present his thesis titled Use of Interactional Parenting and Reciprocal Behavior for Children: Basis for Total Development of a Child.
"I have never been more nervous in my life," he said.
His next post then asked for prayers, and hoped that his panel would like his presentation.
After a couple of hours, the 29-year-old actor/entrepreneur/registered nurse then showed a video of his dean inside the room.
He then said into the camera, "My dean is discussing my grade. Will I pass? Will I get a good grade? Just finished. I'm so happy!"
Rocco confirmed the good news on his Instagram feed.
He posted a photo with his panel and gave his message of thanks.
"Finally, another one checked off my bucket list!" he wrote.
"Passed my thesis defense and am set to graduate as a cum laude this Friday!
"It's been a crazy 2 years of balancing everything, and now I am almost at the finish line."
Rocco dedicated this achievement to his parents, Ralph and Linda Nacino.
"This one's for you mom and dad!
"It's a different sense of fulfillment when it comes to pursuing education. And now I can finally breathe a huuuugge sigh of relief!"
He then introduced himself with his new titles: "I am now Enrico Raphael Quiogue Nacino, R.N, M.A.N. (Registered Nurse, Master of Arts in Nursing). To God be the Glory!"
Rocco became a registered nurse in 2009.
