As stated in my previous articles on CHED MO No. 5, the Philippine government’s proposal to make nursing as a 5-year undergraduate course in the Philippines, I am posting here the complete Memorandum Order Issued by CHED in 2008. The proposed new nursing curriculum was supposed to be implemented this school year 2009 onwards. However, since since this move has been opposed by several groups, MO No. 5 is currently under review. Here is the complete MO and the subjects included in the proposed new nursing curriculum.
Please note that we are presently conducting a nursing research on this topic and our survey is not over yet. The locale of our study is Ilocos Norte and it will take some time for data to be gathered. If you have comment on CHED MO No. 5, please feel free to post them in the comments section of this article. One of these days I will also post a poll in this site to gauge how readers view this. As a researcher, I’m trying to eliminate bias by not involving my personal take on this matter now that the study is being conducted.
