The congress, last week, approved a new law lowering the mandated salary of goverment nurses to Salary Grade 11 from Salary Grade 15 as originally stipulated in the Philippine Nursing Act of 2002 (R.A. 9173).

This means that the prescribed salary of nurses working in the public sector will be standardized at Php12,000 per month with increases worth Php6,000 spread over a four-year period. The new Salary Standadization Law effectively amends the salary provision in R.A. 9173 providing for a Php25,000 starting monthly salary for government nurses.

The Philippine Nurses Association (PNA), through PNA National President Teresita Irigo-Barcelo, issued a statement decrying the new law. It said that the Salary Standadization Law denies filipino registered nurses of their right to humane salaries elaborating that in the last seven (7) years, the government has deprived government nurses of their right to Salary Grade 15 as mandated in the Nursing Law (Republic Act 9173).

The PNA president also warned that this move would result to more nurses seeking employment abroad.

House Speaker Prospero C. Nograles said the new pay rate will be implemented in July.
