The following article is taken from the official publication of PRC Board of Nursing (www.bonphilippines.org), regarding the rumor that the intra-partal, intra-operative, and immediate care of the newborn requirements (OR/DR Cases) was reduced from 5 to 3 cases, which caused confusion to some nursing students.

The BON wishes to reiterate to all concerned that in accordance with its quasi-legislative function (Article III, Section 9 (c), (d) and (h), it is still in the process of HEARING the outputs from the Association of Deans of Philippine Colleges of Nursing (ADPCN) based on commitments duly made during the last ADPCN Convention of October 2008 and therefore has not announced any changes in the prevailing requirement of cases for the intra-partal, intraoperative and immediate care of the newborn. The BOARD wishes to FURTHER EMPHASIZE, that it adheres to a NO RETROACTIVE APPLICATION OF ANY NEW POLICY, therefore if and when new promulgations are finally issued this will never be applied to “graduating students”. And that FINALLY, the BOARD envisions that all related policy-changes that will be announced shall be in effect for those who will enroll for their intra-partal, intra-operative, and immediate care of the newborn clinical experiences in June of 2009.

In view hereof, all Deans and faculty-members of Colleges of Nursing, and all concerned professional nurses ARE HEREBY DIRECTED to follow the PREVAILING PRESCRIPTIONS of five cases each with regards to O.R., D.R., and Cord Care requirements for the filing of applications to the 2009-2010 Nurse Licensure Examinations (NLE). Nursing graduates of 2011 and 2012, meaning those enrolling in their 2nd and 3rd Academic Year shall be those who shall be affected by the new policy promulgations.
