Dr. Ruth Padilla, Commissioner-in-Charge of the Professional Regulations Commission said they will issue an advisory to all schools and deans of nursing colleges about the zoning scheme and its plan to split the deadline of application for repeaters and first- timers.

She said the new scheme was pilot-tested for the November exam, but will be fully implemented for the June board next year.

Padilla also bared the Commission’s plan to combine and hold twice the special licensure examination for nurses in Hong Kong and the regular nurses’ board in the country.

The special licensure examination for nurses in Hong Kong started this month upon the request of the Filipino Nurses Association (FPA) and the Integrated Midwives Association of the Philippines, Inc. (IMAP) chapters in that country.

She said the professional regulatory body will also implement in 2010 the new schedule for the licensure examinations from June to July 3, and from November to Dec. 12 and 13.

“Ang reason natin dito, we are having problems with examinees not able to apply on the deadline simply because they are not issued a transcript of record, because they are not graduates yet,’’ she said.
