BOARD OF NURSING ADVISORY


TO : DEANS OF COLLEGES OF NURSING

SUBJECT : INTRA-PARTAL , INTRA-OPERATIVE, AND IMMEDIATE CARE OF


THE NEWBON REQUIREMENTS IN THE FILING OF APPLICATION
FOR THE NURSE LICENSURE EXAMINATION

DATE : JANUARY 30, 2009

It has come to the attention of the PRC Board of Nursing that some Nursing Colleges
have reduced the required number of “intra-partal, intra-operative, and immediate care of the
newborn” (D.R. / O.R. / Cord Care) from five (5) to three(3) cases causing confusion especially
among nursing students.

The BOARD 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.

This 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, this BOARD envisions that all related policy-changes that will be
announced shall be in effect for those who will enrol 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
nd rd
graduates of 2011 and 2012, meaning those enrolling in their 2 and 3 Academic Year shall be
those who shall be affected by the new policy promulgations.

PLEASE BE GUIDED ACCORDINGLY.
