For nurses who have incomplete cpd units, PRC have announced regarding their maximum flexibility in the implementation of the CPD.
PRC Exercises Maximum Flexibility in the Implementation of the CPD
Manila, Philippines – Since the implementation of the Continuing Professional Development in July 2017, no professional who applied for the renewal of his/her professional ID has ever been denied by PRC due to incomplete or lacking CPD units. The PRC exercises maximum flexibility in the implementation of the CPD and has made available for the professionals the Undertaking embedded in the Professional Identification Card (PIC) renewal form, thereby allowing the professional to complete and submit only the CPD units in the next renewal period three years after his/her first renewal under CPD Law.
The PRC directed all CPD Councils of the 43 regulated professions to review and if necessary, make amendments to their respective CPD Operational Guidelines to address the clamor of the professionals. Some CPD Councils have revised their respective operational guidelines to further make CPD more accessible and affordable.
Nurses’ Required CPD Units for Year 2018
The required CPD credit units for the renewal of Professional Identification Card (PIC) for nurses starting the year 2018 is 15 units; for 2019 is 45 units and 2020 onward is 45 units.
For nurses who have incomplete CPD units ( <15 units ) upon renewal of PRC License, you are allowed to complete the CPD units in the next renewal period three years.
