personally I don't think so.
I have handled some classes...and there is obviously an oversupply of students vis-a-vis cases.
have you seen a single baby in a Nursery surrounded by 12 to 16 students?
this is becoming the norm now. (and why the PRC is cracking down on the cases submitted for the NLE)
even if you add 1 year to training, there wouldn't be enough cases to go around.
even in government hospitals, where Nursing Schools
jostle to get one of the prized, but limited, slots.
I think the current setup is good: additional training is received upon being accepted by a hospital.
if we have 40,000 examinees for the June NLE, and another 40,000 for December...that's 60,000 to 80,000 graduates per year. the 60,000 estimate is to account for the repeaters and the graduates of previous years.
how in the Philippines do you find hospitals and cases for these many RNs?
your proposal is feasible for Medical students, because they are few. less than 6,000 to 8,000 per exam? so 10,000 to 16,000 graduates per year?
even with these many Medical graduates, I don't think everybody gets adequate training.
my 2 cents.
