PRC Requirements for Initial Registration of Professional License

I might not be able to go online for a day (again) because my wife and I are going to Baguio City. This is in view of her application for a professional license (Registered Nurse). I did not want us to go there during the Holy Week because of practical reasons. Baguio City is overcrowded during the Lenten Season and government offices are closed.

For those who are planning to file the same application as mentioned above, here is the Philippine Regulation Commission (PRC) requirements. This was taken from a form distributed by PRC to all colleges and universities nationwide. It can also be obtained from the PRC website but I am reposting it here for every concerned individuals’ info:

Initial Registration Instructions and Requirements


Initial registrants should come personally to the PRC Central Office or to the nearest Regional Office to file his/her application for registration and to affix his/her signature in the registry book.

All Registration Certificates and PRC ID shall be claimed by the licensee personally at the Central Office or the Regional Office where the application for the same has been filed. If there is an unavoidable need for a representative, he must present his/her identification paper with picture and a Special Power of Attorney.


  1. Duly accomplished Oath Form or Panunumpa ng Propesyonal
  2. Current Community Tax Certificate (cedula)
  3. Two pcs. passport size pictures with name tag (for Oath Form and Certificate of Registration)
  4. One pc. 1”x1” picture in plain background with complete name tag (for Registry of Professionals)
  5. Two sets of metered documentary stamps (for Oath Form and Certificate of Registration)
  6. One (1) short brown envelope with name and profession

According to my wife, the total fees to be paid at the PRC Regional Office will sum up to 1,500 pesos. We do not know exactly how much will be the total amount to be paid but I will update this article when we’ll have already paid the application fee in the next few hours.

    Thanks for dropping by but sorry for the late reply. Depending on your job description, the basic requirements for teaching English here (in Colleges and Universities) is at least a BA or BS degree in English or related fields like Education or Literature. If you’re going to teach in high school, they will require teacher’s license (Licensure Examination for Teachers or LET, which you must take and pass). If you are not an English major, you will be required to take 18 units (6 subjects or one semester) of Education units to qualify for the LET, then you’ll be able to take it after being granted certification. After that you can take the LET and if you pass, you can teach in high school. In college the requirements are not really that stringent except for those I mentioned above.

  6. hi jess! just wanna thank you for dropping by!

    it’s unfortunate that you didn’t have a good weather while in baguio. it’s always expected that it should be quite chilly there most of the time. the weather everywhere is getting weirder.

    anyways, hope all is well at your end!

    Fren, effect siguro ng global warming yun. Biro mo, Baguio City pinapawisan ako nang husto sa init. Sa hapon medyo lumalamig pero during daytime you walk on the street with very little clothes on.

    Naku you got it right. Alam mo bang basta umaakyat kami sa Baguio eh nangangatog ang mga Paypal account at credit cards ko. Hahahaha! Especially during Holy week and Panagbenga (flower festival nila). Nagiging times 10 ang mga presyo ng bilihin at hotel accommodation dun.
