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:

Achieve success in Australia through Enhance Visa’s expo

Professionals and fresh graduates in Cebu and Iloilo will get the chance to achieve global competitive advantage through Enhance Visa’s education and immigration expo this August.

It’s Time to Move to Australia aims to help Filipinos professionals achieve global success in Australia. Attendees will be informed of the different pathways and options they can take to receive a bright and stable future abroad through a consultation and assessment on their qualifications for either study or direct immigration to Australia. They will get to hear directly from Vikram Sharma, an Australian-registered migration agent. He is also the CEO and Director of Lawson College Australia which offers courses for international students in nursing, English advancement and business management among others.

The event will be held on August 19 and 26, 2017 in Harold’s Hotel Cebu and Seda Atria Hotel Iloilo, respectively.

According to Sharma, “Australia is looking to invite more skilled immigrants to come into the country to fill the labor shortages and boost the economy”. Australia has skill shortages in the following industry fields: healthcare and medical, engineering, agriculture, accounting, computer science and information technology.

Australia is a top choice for any immigrant. In a 2017 survey conducted by Mercer, one of the world’s largest HR consultancy firms, three of Australia’s cities (Sydney, Melbourne and Perth) are in the top 10% best places to live on. Australia is also a top destination for international students with its world-leading universities and topnotch educational facilities. Whether you’re looking for world-class education or a global career, Australia offers both.

“In this increasingly global age, we really encourage our fellow Filipinos to seek better opportunities abroad as we are among the most hardworking and competitive members of any workforce,” said Eden Dumont, Managing Director of Enhance Visa.

“Australia is a good destination for Filipino immigrants because it’s a country with a growing economy and some of the best social welfare benefits in the world.” she adds.

Enhance Visa has a 23-year track record of helping thousands of Filipinos build a better future abroad by providing comprehensive immigration solutions for them to countries Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Japanese group want 'relaxed' policies in hiring Filipino nurses, caregivers

A member of the House of Representatives of Japan and a group from the education and nursing care sectors in Okinawa wanted the simplification of the policy in accepting foreign care workers in their country.

DOLE Undersecretary Bernard P. Olalia said Mikio Shimoji headed the delegation that apprised POEA officials on their proposal to adopt a separate framework apart from the existing Japanese immigration rules on nursing care in view of the projected need for high quality nursing care resulting from Japan’s ageing population.

Olalia, presently the POEA officer-in-charge, said the group believe some provisions in the existing Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) between the Philippines and Japan that restrict the entry of more foreign care workers into Japan should be relaxed to help address its shortage of health workers.

Japan has been accepting a limited number of nursing and care work trainees from the Philippines since 2009 under the Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA). Japan also has economic partnership agreements with Indonesia and Vietnam.

Under JPEPA, qualified applicants learn Japanese language and culture, undergo professional training in Japanese health facilities, and then take the Japanese licensure exam in their respective profession. Candidates who pass the national board examination are eligible to work in Japan indefinitely, renewing their residence status every three years.

Undersecretary Olalia said the delegation proposed a new framework concerning the deployment of Filipino caregivers to Okinawa other than the existing EPA where the Philippines can send its workforce, specifically caregivers not only to Japan government institutions but also to private owned health facilities.

Shimoji said Okinawa has hospitals and facilities ready to accept fifty (50) caregivers for 2017 and the demand is projected to increase over time as the population declines, giving Japan an old-age society where demand for nursing care will be greater.

[Related: POEA hiring 600 nurses, 150 caregivers for Japan]

In the proposal, the 6-month preparatory Japan language training will be undertaken in Japan and not in the Philippines. The delegation believe direct access to and actual interaction with Japanese nationals in communicating under a Japanese language education program will be much more effective in achieving a high-level work and language ability.

This will eventually contribute to passing the required licensure examination. The language training component will have four (4) hours of work and four (4) hours of language training in day.

The delegation also wanted to expand the scheme to include fourth (4th) generation Japanese descents and bring them to Okinawa for training as caregivers.

Olalia said he welcomes any alternative way to ease recruitment and deployment of nurses and caregivers to Japan. He expressed willingness to pursue the proposal and recommended to sit down with the representatives of the Japanese government, especially of Okinawa, to discuss the program details and draft a Memorandum of Understanding.

Shimoji said Okinawa will identify facilities that are available and the language education program in Japan.

Both parties decided to assemble a small group of POEA officers and delegates from Okinawa to work on the details of the proposal to facilitate a faster and easier deployment scheme for Filipino caregivers to Okinawa.

Since the implementation of the EPA in 2009, 506 nurses and 1,403 care workers were already deployed to Japan with 106 nurses and 176 caregivers passing the board examinations. [via POEA]
