Registered Nurse to Registered Midwife in the Philippines?

  1. 0
    Good day, fellow nurses!

    I passed the Nursing Licensure Examinations that took place last July of this year. I am psyched that I have an RN license but I was hoping if I can have an RM license as well.

    The last thread regarding this issue was 2010. I was hoping if you guys have any updates on the issue.

    I'm targeting November 2013 since I heard that I'll need cases and I'm still seeking hospital employment at the moment. Can somebody please help me? Many thanks guys!

    Hello I am an RN and RM in the Philippines. I graduated March 2009, passed the NLE June 2009 and passed MLE Novemeber 2009. That time, I just completed actual, assist and cord clamp and IV insertion to be eligible for the exam. I don't know if PRC already change their requirements for the eligibility.

    Goodluck

    Hello, PiRN

    I
    'd just like to aaask. I actually don't know anyone personally who's an RN, RM. Can I interview you for a bit?

    How can you compare the NLE in contrast with the MLE? Was it harder? Did you have review classes for that? I had my NLE review in SRG, but they don't offer MLE review as well. Can you recommend review centers?

    How many days did you have to wait until the results?

    PiRN, how were you able to take the exam on the same year? Did you get your Nurse License from PRC right away?

    Both exam are kinda same but the MLE focus more on OB Pedia but the nursing process are the same. I self-reviewed since I am a new graduate at that time and information are fresh. The waiting period for MLE is most likely 3-5 days unlike the NLE which taking months before the released. You may wish to check other recent MLE exam results for you to know more about it, also check PRC website on what is the process of applying for examination.

    I took the NLE June 2009 and MLE November 2009.
