Non-Compliant Filipino Nursing Schools Will Be Closed Down by CHED by June Next Year

· Filed Under In the news 

Now this is getting serious.

Nursing schools have been warned by The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) on Friday that if they will not implement the revised nursing curriculum June next year, CHED will revoke their licenses to operate.

This came after reports reached CHED that only 30% of the country’s nursing schools are compliant to the CHED Memorandum Order No. 5 (CMO No. 5) series of 2008 which sets the revised policies and standard curriculum for the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN).

The Coordinating Council of Private Education Associations (COCOPEA), which represents a consortium of private schools in the country with more than 2,500 members, has been fighting to junk the CMO No. 5, because this order raises the units required in BSN from 198 to 212 and related learning experience (RLE). Such ordinance will require the nursing students to take additional three summers to accommodate all the added units.

COCOPEA argued that aside from the financial burden this will bring to the students and parents as well, this order only mean that if a nursing student decides to shift to another course in his third year, he or she will be credited with less general education subjects in his new course resulting to a longer delay in his studies.

The group also pointed out that the professional courses under the new memorandum order were maximized to 125 units, of which 49 units are for related learning experience or RLE with a total of 2,499 exposure or contact hours.

COCOPEA is very determined to fight their petition to court because they believe that CHED failed to hold a public hearing as mandated under Republic Act 7722.

Despite COCOPEA’s objections, the Philippine Nursing Association (PNA), the Association of Deans of the Colleges of Nursing of the Philippines, and the Association of Private Hospitals in the Philippines, declared their strong support on the implementation of the CMO No. 5.
