Hi Blessed23...Yes there are schools here in the Philippines who offers online program for MAN..These are the schools that i know who offers online program, University of the Philippines-Open University, Lorma College in La union, Philippine Womens University...

Thank you so much nurseharbee.... take care and God bless you:yeah:

Hi blessed 23, I hope you will find Lorma Colleges as an answer. I did mine there but in a classroom, however Lorma is now offering online MAN. I enjoyed my school days there and still recommend Lorma to everyone wanting to further their studies. As you have said you are working overseas, then the online program is suitable for you. It is a good school with excellent reputation. You can visit their website at http://www.lorma.edu.ph or you can google search Lorma colleges La Union and click schools, then go to graduate school. you will find loads of information. Good Luck.

for cebu, try southwestern university.. they have online courses for MAN..

I may be wrong but I always had the impression that online MAN programs in the RP conduct their tests in a satellite location and hold practicums within the country. Can overseas based Pinoys enroll in these programs?

I took some MAN courses in PWU-OU. I still need to go to school to take the exams, but i guess you can discuss this with your prof. They will send you your materials.

I was thinking before of enrolling at PWU-OU but then the Dean told me that if a graduate school student does not have 1 year experience, they are not qualified for online program. (sighs) But anyway thank God i was admitted at Southwestern University Cebu

Yes, having a 1 year hospital experience is a must. Try southwestern in cebu

thanks nurseHarbee!

In what level is their accreditation?

Why am I asking this? When i attended a nursing seminar a couple of months ago.. I overheard the person seated beside me talking to the other one, telling that it is good to have a post-grad studies if the university has a Level 3 accreditation,because accdg. to that person if one is planning to work abroad, then that's recognized outside..

thanks,

What do you mean Level of Accreditation? are you asking for the entire university's accreditation status? If that's it, Southwestern is due for re accreditation, currently the university has Level II status. Actually according to my professor in the Graduate school, our curriculum for graduate studies in the Philippines is far different from other developed countries, that is the reason why some University's and Schools outside ASIA does not recognize the Graduate degree's not taken in the 1st world countries.

I have a teacher in college she finished her MAREXA (master of arts in research,extension and Administration) in a Level III accredited nursing school in the Visayas and she acquired her MAN at the Ateneo de Davao. She is now working in the US, she told me her Master's degree was not yet verified thats why she can't use her titles there.

I'm not sure if we have "TRUE" online programs here, but from the looks of it, we still have a long way to go...I don't think it's going to be implemented here in the near future...We are way behind the USA in almost all aspects, including distance/online learning...

Probably these schools are not 100% online, we don't have that capability yet. Why get in the the Philippines when you can get it elsewhere, especially in the USA?
