    Alright. As promised I went to prc earlier. So many would be teachers and seamen were there. I went to window 9 of the application department and the lady there gave me the guidelines:BASIC REQUIREMENTS:1. NSO birth certificate2. Tor3. Passport size pic with name tag 4pcs4. Cedula5. Exam fee- 600other requirements:1. Prc Id2. Board cert3. Cert of consent (from the affiliated hospital; lying-inns etc)4. Record of deliveries handled5. Cert of trainings/ seminars of supervising RM6. Prc ID license and employees' ID of both supervising RM and certifying officerstraight from the list which the lady gave me to have it photocopied. So there is no mention of having to take the midwifery curriculum or ladderized students. so if I were you people I won't just believe other people just because they said so. You can go to prc window 9 application department. The purpose of this thread is to help fellow RNs with their queries particularly taking the RM exam and I just can't believe that even here crab mentality is rampant. Very Pinoy huh?
    crab mentality?excuse me.our staff nurse and even my colleagues was denied by the prc in our place to take the said exam.they had the necessary reqts back then but unfortunately, was denied.very pinoy?lolz

    nope. sorry nurses. only ladderized nursing/midwifery students are allowed to take te board. i think the last bAtch of nurses who took this exam was on nov2009
    Maybe you and your colleagues WERE denied but it doesn't mean that nurses can no longer take the midwifery boards. Why are they accepting the requirements and interviewing nurses in the first place ? You even said that you've undergone the same process but unfortunately you weren't able to pass it. You said it like it's absolut that prc doesn't allow rns to take the midwifery boards. And it's just so funny that you replied to the crab mentality thing. Were you hit?

    And btw my cousin took that exam. She's an RN RM now. She's from feu and now she's in Norway. So don't give us that "nope sorry nurses" crap ok? Maybe you're just so unfortunate to be denied by PRC and you try to discourage other RNs from taking the exam. *mope mope*
