MANILA, Philippines – The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) said that it has been alerted by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) of some 253 “low performing” nursing schools in the country based on their graduates’ performance in the PRC nursing licensure examinations for 2009.

Emmanuel Angeles, CHED chairman, said that they have noted the 2009 nursing licensure exam results and will incorporate this into the data they are gathering on PRC licensure exam results of previous years as they pursue an effort to identify nursing schools that has to phase out their nursing programs due to poor quality.

The 253 “low-performing” nursing schools were adjudged as such from their graduates’ passing percentage in the 2009 licensure exams wherein it should register above the national passing average rate of 40.70 percent.

The data coming from PRC-Educational Statistics Task Force show that these schools ranked less than 40.70% in the licensure examinations administered by the PRC last June and November 2009.
