The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) recently issued Memorandum Order 32 banning public and private higher education institutions from offering new undergraduate and graduate programs in nursing.
The order covers schools planning to offer new courses. Schools with existing nursing programs are not included.
It said that the proliferation of schools offering substandard nursing programs coupled with low passing rates in recent nurse licensure examination led to the ban.
Pinoy R.N. obtained a copy of the order and is posted below for reference:CHED Memorandum Order 32 Series of 2010 - www.PinoyRN.co.nr
CHED Memorandum Order No. 32 also prohibits colleges and universities from offering new undergraduate and graduate programs in business administration, teacher education, hotel and restaurant management and information technology (IT).
