With the expected rise of nursing graduates this year, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) has released a memo to nursing school presidents and college deans saying that nursing graduates of March 2008 will be taking the nurse licensure examination in November 2008. While those graduating in October of this year can take the nursing board exam on June 2009.
Those intending to take the June 1 and 2 nursing board exams this year are advised to complete their application at PRC on April 11, 2008. The deadline for the November 28 and 29 nursing board exams this year is October 17, 2008.
The PRC expects to process at least 80,000 applicants for the nurse licensure examination this year. A PDF copy of the PRC memorandum circular is available at the download section of Pinoy R.N.
