PRC-BON revises NLE subjects

The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) through Board of Nursing (BON) has recently made changes to the classification of subjects included in the Philippine nursing board exam.

Professional Regulatory Board of Nursing issued Resolution No. 11, series of 2017 entitled “Re-Classification of the Subjects Nursing Practice I and Nursing Practice II of the Philippine Nurse Licensure Examination (PNLE)” signed by July 13, 2017.

Currently, the NLE is composed of the five 100-item subjects, as follows:
Nursing Practice I: Basic Foundation of Nursing and Professional Nursing Practice
Nursing Practice II: Community Health Nursing and Care of the Mother and Child
Nursing Practice III: Care of Clients with Physiologic and Psychosocial Alterations, Part A
Nursing Practice IV: Care of Clients with Physiologic and Psychosocial Alterations, Part B
Nursing Practice V: Care of Clients with Physiologic and Psychosocial Alterations, Part C

Based on the resolution, the BON reviewed the components of Nursing Practice II and noted that “under the present PNLE framework, the scope and number of items allocated for Community Health Nursing and Care of the Mother and Child are not adequate to determine the competence of the beginning nurses in such component/areas of practice.”

“The curricular content of each of these two (2) components (Community Health Nursing and Care of the Mother and Child) are so broad and extensive that they ought to be treated as separate and distinct component/area,” the resolution stated.

After consulting stakeholders such as Association of Deans of Philippine Colleges of Nursing (ADPCN), the BON resolved to make changes and reclassify the subjects of the NLE. Here are the revisions:
1. The Nursing Practice I on Basic Foundation of Nursing and Professional Nursing Practice shall no longer be treated as separate and independent component of PNLE, but instead will be subsumed or integrated in all the PNLE examination subjects;
2. The Nursing Practice I shall be reclassified and renamed Community Health Nursing, and which shall be assigned with relative weight of twenty percent (20%);
3. The Nursing Practice II shall be reclassified and renamed Care of Healthy/At Risk Mother and Child, and which shall be assigned with relative weight of twenty percent (20%);

Classification and descriptions of Nursing Practice III, IV and V shall remain the same.

New NLE Subjects

Nursing Practice I: Community Health Nursing
Nursing Practice II: Care of Healthy/At Risk Mother and Child
Nursing Practice III: Care of Clients with Physiologic and Psychosocial Alterations, Part A
Nursing Practice IV: Care of Clients with Physiologic and Psychosocial Alterations, Part B
Nursing Practice V: Care of Clients with Physiologic and Psychosocial Alterations, Part C

The new NLE Subjects will be applied starting November 2017 NLE and succeeding schedules. Here’s the full text of the Resolution:

    Testimony on how i got my LOAN from fundingloanplc@yahoo.com

    I'm Isabella Tyson from 1910 N Halsted St Unit 3, Chicago IL60614 USA,, i have been searching for a genuine loan company for the past few months and all i got was bunch of scams who made me to trust them and at the end of the day took my money without giving anything in return, all hope was lost i got confused and frustrated, i find it very difficult to feed my family and vowed never to have anything to do with loan companies on net and went to seek of assistance from a very good friend which i explained all my experience regarding online companies with and said he can help me that he knows of a Godsent and well known company called FUNDING CIRCLE PLC, he stated he just got a loan from them although i was still very unsure about this company due to my past experience but i decided to give it a try and did as i was directed by my friend and applied, i never believed but i tried and to my greatest surprise i received my loan in my bank account within 24 hours, i could not believe that i would stand on my feet financially again. I’m glad I took the risk and applied for the loan and today i'm thanking God that such loan companies still exist and promise to share the good news to people who are in need of financial assistance because the rate of scams on net is getting very serious and i don't want people to fall victim when we still have genuine and Godsent lenders.. You can contact this Godsent company using the information as stated and be a partaker of this great testimony.. Email: fundingloanplc@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +14067326622 thanks
