152 nursing schools told: Improve or else…
The Commission on Higher Education (CHEd) warned Wednesday 152 of the 456 nursing schools in the country to improve their licensure examination passing rates or face closure as more than 95,000 nursing graduates prepare for the tests this weekend.
“Shape up or be phased out,” said CHED chairman Emmanuel Angeles.
The low-performing nursing schools’ passing rates for the last five years have failed to meet the standards set by Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC), Angeles said.
“This is a wake-up call for our nursing schools to shape up or be phased out. CHEd will not hesitate to enforce the regulation if they still failed to heed our calls,” Angeles said.
The CHEd was able to identify the poor performing nursing schools through a series of validation processes conducted on all nursing schools in the country recently.
