Memorandum No. 5 – Nurses

Published by rudy Date posted on January 29, 2009

The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) has decided to junk the controversial memorandum order No. 5 or the new nursing curriculum in order to push through with the proposed “10 plus 2 plus 3 scheme” or the new Philippine Main Education Highway. In this scheme, students will have 10 years of basic education, two years of pre-university and the remaining three years, the specialization program. CHED Chairman, Dr.Emmanuel Angeles said the new scheme would enable nursing graduates to be at par with their foreign counterparts, particularly in terms of expertise and skills. Also, Angeles said it would allow the country to conform to international agreements including the Bologna Accord that sets the standards for nursing degree and related courses. –James Lonstantin Galvez, Manila Times
