    i just pass the NLE '09..
    Are we not allowed to take the midwifery exam this november because we still dont have our prc licences?

  2. regarding to ur concern about Midwifery board exam, yup u cant take the Midwifery Board exam without a Nurse License. License card is one requirement before taking the said exam.

    With my success of passing the June 09 NLE, its my desire to take the November 2009 MLE. Is this my last chance to take the board exam for the reason that the next June 2009 MLE requires a 4-year course of Midwifery? Thanks. I will appreciate any idea. thanks..

    Hello po,

    I've just passed the June 2009 NLE. I have some questions lang po regarding the midwifery cases:

    1. Meron po kasi column kung saan ilalagay po yung name nung hospital, and meron din pong column na i-che2ck if home delivery. Mostly po kasi nung cases ko ay home deliveries, kapag po ba ganun ang ilalagay ko na lang po ba sa column nung hospital is NONE - kasi po puro home deliveries po yung akin.

    2. Yung regarding po ba sa sutures, is it necessary that it was performed in the hospital?

    Thanks, I hope you can help me on this. Lapi na po kasi deadline, :)

  11. bakekang Says:

  12. aseyus Says:


    @glitzdelight: no you can't. actual license is needed.. kasi po ung mga cases na dapat ong ihahandle sa deliveries is the date after ur registration.

    @anonymous: no po. need tlga ng license. trust me.

    @young event: nkapag request ka na ba ng certificate of passing? mabilis lng un. or pwede mong ipa express lane. makukuha mo sya within the day..mas mahal nga lang..

    @lach: no po. sori.

    @anonymous: april ata or may ung next.. 2010.. pero wala pa daw announcement na di na pwede ang nurse-midwife.

    @bakekang: april/may 2010.. i think..

  13. Pam Says:

  26. Anonymous Says:

  27. YNAP Says:

    Guys, I just came from PRC last week, they say that we can STILL take the exam this April. I'll be filling my application on Monday.

    Regarding the cases, since the April 8 deadline is nearing, its best if you just ask the cases from your connections. only an RM or a OB-gyne MD can sign your cases.

    The exam is on April 28-29, 2010. Good luck to all

    If you have questions, just e-mail me at cedarebellion@yahoo.com

    Hi! I am a Registered Nurse, interested in taking this year's Midwifery boards. I have already checked the necessary reqts (20 cases, 5 IV, 5 sutures, and some documents from school, hosp where you get your cases from, attending RM/MD). My next step would be completion of cases. Can you guys give any suggestion of hospitals within Metro Manila that could accommodate me? A list, or contact person/s, maybe? Thanks.

  42. Koochi Says:
