Philippines: PRC-BON to require 60 CPD units for Nurses by katty : January 23, 2017, 04:48:50 PM
Professional Regulation Commission - Board of Nursing (PRC-BON) will require 60 units of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programs from nurses as a requirement for license renewal.

One of the attendees in the recent 10th MDCON Research Congress held in Manila Tytana Colleges on January 18 said that BON Member Dr. Glenda S. Arquiza announced that they intend to require 60 units, more than the required 45 units by PRC.

Arquiza explained that the 45-unit requirement
is just a minimum standard of PRC, and it is up to the discretion of each Professional Regulatory Board to add to that requirement.

Regarding the CPD Unit Credits, Section 19 of PRC Resolution No. 2016-990 states that "Registered and licensed professionals shall complete the required units every three (3) years as specified in Annex A (Credit Units Required per Profession) or as specified in their Professional Regulatory Law or as provided by the PRB and the Commission that may be issued."

PRC-BON and the CPD Council for Nursing intend to release the Implementing Rules and Regulation (IRR) of the new CPD Law in the first week of February 2017.


The BON will also see to it that in-service trainings with CPD units shall be provided by the institutions at no cost to employed nurses.
"A nurse with no update is a dangerous nurse. We must not look at this CPD units as a burden instead an opportunity to learn new things," said Arquiza.
