PNA Supports CHED’s Move to Change Nursing Curriculum Despite Protests by Other Parties

· Filed Under In the news 

Last Tuesday, the Philippine Nurses Association (PNA) approves the implementation of a Commission on Higher Education (CHED) memorandum circular no. 5 that imposes a new curriculum on nursing schools on Tuesday.

CHED’s new memo, also known as the enhanced Four-Year Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program, adds another 33 units to the present nursing curriculum’s 169 units.  This will technically result to adding three summer classes to the present eight-semester course of aspiring Filipino Nurses.

“The PNA fully believes and supports the rationale of the new and enhanced four-year BSB program,” the Nurses Group said in its position paper signed by Leah Primitiva Samaco-Paquiz, its national president.

With this course enhancement, the number of hours for practicum will also be increased to 2,499 from the present 2,142-hour requirement.

PNA released their position as leaders of the largest consortium of private colleges and universities in the Philippines, as well as the umbrella organization of five educational associations, expressed their disapproval of this move from CHED.
