Now the PRC new requirements for new curriculum is 3 cases for each area. Not minor/major cases, but 3 surgical scrub and 3circulating. 3 Actual, 3 assist, and 3 cord care. Thats it, which makes it even MESSED up for someone applying for nclex. Grrrr
I've heard from others, that with this change will it result in possible "shortage of the required minimum clinical hours" needed to pass the State's BONs?
Really, this major decision from the CHED needs to make sure they are in full 100% compliance with at least the CA BON. CHED etal needs to hire some CA experts to review this change and make sure it's in full exact compliance or else, there's another reason for application rejections.
I think if the CHED is doing this on their own without professional experts having full knowledge of the CA BON rules, it's going to be a big waste of time and money on the students.
As we all know, the CHED, PRC and PNA don't have to change the curriculums to comply with the States, their only concern is for the country's own requirements.
Since by CHED's own admission that over 33% of all PH grads do come back or prefer to work in CA, they better know what they are doing.
The ones who should be the watchdogs also ARE the new and upcoming students, they need to put the pressure on the CHED etal or else, they do are partly to blame for any future problems in applying into the States, this is their chance and again no blaming of the State's BON.
If there's a future problem, then the blame belongs to the students who should have been in charge of making sure they are getting the proper requirements if they plan to work in the States.
