PRC accredited CPD programs, providers for nurses

The new Continuing Professional Development Law which mandates all regulated professionals including nurses to earn CPD units as requirement for PRC ID renewal will take effect in 2017.

The measure also known as Republic Act 10912 or the Continuing Professional Development Act of 2016 gives authority to Professional Regulatory Boards to create CPD Councils which will monitor and supervise the efficiency and progress of the CPD programs for their respective profession.

What are the nursing training, workshops or seminars that offer CPD units? We are listing down the CPD Providers and Programs with their respective units previously accredited by PRC Board of Nursing CPD Council.

  1. Accredited ba ung cpd units abroad for the renewal of license?

  2. Inayos nyo Sana ang sweldo ng nurses bago nyo na implement yan..bayad sa renewal mas malaki ba ang byad kysa sa sweldo ng nurses..

  3. The scrub top has a nice V-neck collar which I think looks better, on me at least. It's not low cut either. Scrub top is a bit transparent, which is typical for white. I wear a tank or camisole under it.

  4. Free po ba yan? Pano naman po yung mga nurses na hindi pagiging nurse ang trabaho? Lalo na yung mga nurses na volunteer lang at wala namang sweldo? Dagdag gastos lang yan eh. Ang hirap na nga kumita para sa pang araw araw dadagdagan pa ng ganyan. Buti sana kung free. Grabe talaga magisip ang mga politiko. Makahanap lang talaga ng pagkakakitaan, pipigain pa ang mga mahihirap. Di na nakuntento sa mga kinukurakot nila. Hay buhay.

  5. The aim of the Philippine Government to enhance, update and empower the nurses is very much appreciated and it is for the benefit of the whole medical workforce as well. however, it should also be taken into account that those CPD units should be given for FREE, since they have made it mandatory for us nurses. one reason is, to acquire those units is a no joke, in some training/ seminars will have to spend money tantamount to a month salary or worst even more. they would argue that the employers should shoulder all the expenses made by the staff, but, it not likely the case. especially if the nurse is working in a private sector, wherein the best thing they could offer is to provide it to the staff through a pay later scheme, further compromising the staff. i hope, that the government has also considered that before they fully implemented it. it would have been better that they have developed an online e learning scheme for free and or conduct free training/seminar for nurses both in public and private sector. moreover it would be better if the PNA or other nursing org. should take into consideration as well, rather than conducting trainings/seminars, but still requiring the nurses to pay for it. diba may annual membership naman? so basically the organization has money for it.. just sayin..

  6. magbabayd ka ng para sa seminars and trainings ei pang gastos nga sa pang araw araw kulang pa tapos dadagdagan pa ng panibagong pagkakagastusan.anlaki ng nagastos mo sa pag aaral pero wala pa sa kalahati ang bumabalik sau na pinangbayad mo sa tuition mo. tsk.. buhay nurse nga naman.

  7. is coshemap accredited cpd provider?
