By Rainier Allan Ronda (The Philippine Star)

MANILA, Philippines – The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) disclosed yesterday that the agency had warned 132 nursing schools whose graduates have consistently flunked the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) nursing licensure examinations for five years to either shape up or phase out their nursing programs.

CHED chairman Emmanuel Angeles said that they were closely monitoring the performance of the schools and the agency would close their nursing programs if they fail to improve their graduates’ average passing rate in the PRC licensure exams to at least above the national passing rate of 46.14 percent.

Angeles said CHED had covered 456 nursing schools operating in the country and evaluated the performance of their graduates in PRC nursing licensure exams from 2004 to 2008.
