Nurses and health care activists rallied in front of the Philippine Regulatory Commission (PRC) in Manila on Monday, April 10, 2017 to condemn the implementation of the new CPD Law and got favorable commitments from Board of Nursing.

Members of the Filipino Nurses United (FNU) and Alliance of Health Workers (AHW) criticized the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Law of 2016 a mandatory money-making scheme and a burden on medical professionals.

Their decision shall be made public on April 27, 2017.
