CHAPTER I Introduction Nursing has been an in demand profession abroad most especially to the western countries like Canada, U. S. A, U. K, and Spain,. These countries were experiencing a rapid growth of population resulted in demanding for a health care provider to render health care services for their respected citizens. These countries then, were recruiting for a health care provider from the different part of the world. On the other hand, Filipino Nurses were known for its caring quality of health care services. Therefore, Filipino Nurses are said to be a priority for the foreign countries in recruiting for a health care provider.
In line with these facts, many Filipino Citizens have decided to up take nursing as their career in order to grab the opportunity. Since then, different schools, colleges, universities and other institution are offering a course for the Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

A broad liberal education and a multi- disciplinary approach seek to enhance this belief. Nursing education therefore aims to prepare a critical thinking, demonstrates professional competencies and shall continue to assume responsibility for personal and professional development. Therefore, in starting for a new program for Nursing is very critical. Most especially for the schools that is new in this kind of business. Unlike the other Universities, they have already proven their standards of teaching in offering a quality nursing education. Beginner schools then are required to produce effective strategies, to start for a Nursing Program.
This is for these beginners to have an edge among the other schools. In response with this, these schools which are new in this field have poured their effort in producing a legal rule to be follow by the students to be able to come up with a positive outcome. They are also required to fulfill the entire requirement provided by the government institution of the Philippines like CHED. This institution are used to monitor the education within the countries, next is the PAASCU, which is responsible to declare accreditation to the particular school for its standard.
In its 50th founding year, the Central Colleges of the Philippines opened its College of Nursing. CCP has added to its list of degree courses, a Bachelor of Science in nursing program. This is a four-year degree course, which is described as the art and science of caring for people, whether sick or well. Nursing is both a profession and a lifetime calling. In June 2004, the school welcomed the first batch of nursing freshmen and sophomore students. For the first batch of the National Board examinee, CCP have proven its performance in the field. The 1st batch has received an average of 88 %.
This may implies that CCP is a functioning nursing school up to the latest National Board examination. Last June, CCP have acquired an average of 93% passing rate. According to the Dean of the college of nursing, the excellent performance of the students is due to the effort of the students in studying and through the standard of the College. Some of this standard is the row score of 75 in every subject. This indicates that the students need to pass the major examination with grades no lower than 75 % to be able to pass the subject and graduate from the program.
This motivates the students to have more time on their school works, which obviously reflects a good effect. In line with this, the Central Colleges of the Philippines, College of nursing have formulated their unique mission and vision towards nursing education. As indicated, the Central Colleges of the Philippines, College of Nursing is envisioned to develop the intellect, skills, psych of the students essential to produce knowledgeable, and skilled, caring, humane and competent Nurses at path, if not exceeded, global practitioners.
In regards with the vision of the Central Colleges of the Philippines, College of Nursing, the administration of the said college is monitored by an authorized government agencies. Then, the school has decided to add this intriguing Pre- Board Examination as academic requirements. Last year, numbers of students have failed to take the National Nursing Board Examination due to their failure of completion with the academic requirement of the College of Nursing which is, to pass the Pre- Board Examination. This results to a higher percentage of passing in the Local Board Examination despite of the small number of examinees.
On 2009, The Central Colleges of the Philippines, college of Nursing will be having their 3rd batch of graduates. Graduating students were then being prepared for the incoming Pre- Board Examination. In relation with this intriguing Pre- Board Examination, this study will be concentrating on the reactions of the Graduating students.

CHAPTER II Review of Related Literature Nursing nowadays is very in demand however it depends on the present situations we are facing right now. Taking up nursing is such a demanding one because of the complexity of the program. In this course students will be experiencing a real life hands on. This requires a fully trained student to do proper nursing intervention to the patient. Therefore, this profession should be taken seriously by the students. Despite of this fact, there are still a large number of high school students preferring to have nursing as their future profession.
This may be so because of envisioning having to work abroad. But be alarmed that according to some sources “Nursing is not anymore a sure ticket to work abroad”. Stated on the news inside the world wide web “If you are a Pinoy high school student who are still thinking of taking up Nursing as your college course, think again. The recent reports of oversupply in the nursing profession and dwindling job opportunities here and abroad should make you cringe to think about how can you recover the expensive cost of nursing profession and ending up unemployed.
Think about your parents and their expectations. Think about your own future. Do you really want to be a nurse someday to help sick people? Or do you want to take up nursing just to work abroad and earn more money? The key is to take up nursing right now for the right reasons thereby embedding in you and your families the right expectations. If your families are pressuring you to become a nurse just for money, tell them it’s not the right time. As it stands right now, most students take up Nursing without much heart into it.
Others really want to become accountants, engineers, lawyers and other profession but was forced to take up Nursing thinking of becoming rich and making it successful abroad like their predecessors have testified in advertisements from nursing schools. And remember, the essence of taking up Nursing and becoming a Nurse is to help and care for sick people. If you don’t have that in your heart and you are only after for the money and to work abroad, then you may just be disappointed later. After deciding for their chosen career, most especially for those who have decided to take the Nursing profession, they should be preparing.
These students should expect from the unexpected to happen during the course of the profession. In some school, they have decided to elevate their standards of teaching, as a response to a low passing rate of Nurses during the National Board examination. To react to such action, the schools who are offering Nursing program should maintain the quality Nursing education. With a report from Sol Aragones, ABS-CBN News. A record 88,750 nursing graduates are scheduled to take the Nursing Board Examinations on November 29 and 30, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) said Wednesday.
The PRC said this month’s examinees are the largest in history. However, the PRC said despite the increasing number of examinees, the passing rate for the Nursing boards continues to go down . The PRC said this could be attributed to the increasing number of nursing schools, as well as the lowering of admission standards of some nursing schools. “Open-door policy ng mga paaralan. Hindi siya puwedeng ‘admit all’ eh. There should be qualifications na tama para kung ano at sino ang pwedeng pumasok sa mga propesyon. Hindi lahat puwede mag-nurse,” PRC Board of Nursing member Dr. Marco Sto.
Tomas said. Even some nursing board review centers are noticing the decline in the quality of nursing graduates, saying many graduates are poor in critical analysis. “Critical thinking. Sa isang binigay na sitwasyon, ano yung dapat mong gawin na unique doon sa sitwasyon na ‘yon. ‘Yun ang nakikita kong kahinaan ng mga estudyante,” Carl Balita, a review center owner, said. Nursing review centers also say that if less than half of all examinees pass the local nursing boards, there are even fewer Filipino nursing graduates who pass foreign nursing boards, particularly US nursing examinations.
Currently, 39 percent of Filipino nursing graduates pass US nursing examinations – or less than four passers for every ten examinees. Because of this, the PRC said nursing students should not be merely taught the concepts of the profession, but also be honed in the practical applications of these concepts.

A group of graduating students composed of 16 males and 34 females were surveyed, with an age ranges 19-24 years old. Extracted from these students are the reactions and perceptions about the pre-board examination as an academic requirement. Most of the respondents personal views are almost positive although some of them did not agreed with the implementation of pre-board examination. The following are the reasons pointed by the respondents. a. The student will not take the local board examination b. Student will leave the country after he/she completed the program and will not take the local board examination. . Local board questions are versatile which maybe very different from the questions given on the pre-board examination. d. Pre-board examination hinders the student privilege to graduate after their sacrifices. Followed by these reactions is the description of pre-board examination according to the students. Pre-board examination is a mode of motivation for the graduating students, in the preparation of the local board examination. Pre-board examination motivate the students directly affect the students life because they will be obliged to extract an extra effort, time for their study.
After the gathering of data, almost all of the graduating students have a positive outlook of this mode of motivation. Some said pre-board examination is an evaluative tool in relation to complete the nursing program. This will validate the student’s capability to take the local board examination. Some students have a perception of pre-board as a mile stone for nursing students. The students also emphasized that whatever result that the pre-board examination will have, it will not directly affect the result of the local board examination.
Considering the efforts and sacrifices of the student alone would help the students to have a positive outcome in the local board examination yet, since pre-board examination is a mandatory requirement to be able to finish the nursing program in the Central Colleges of the Philippines, they were very thankful that pre-board examination is implemented. Pre-board examination alarms these students to have a hard work in studying. This pressure will help the student to develop all the needed knowledge, skills and attitude in the preparation of being a nurse which will face the reality of life related to health which focuses on human responses.
The pre-board examination is very important for the students because this will help the students to exhale in the local board examination. One of the risks in preparing for the local board examination is the “pressure”. The student should be physically, emotionally, intellectually prepared before taking up the local board examination. Through the help of the pre-board examination, the student will have the opportunity to experience the feeling of answering the standardized questions which will be given on the actual board examination. This will lessen the anxiety felt by the student.
Preparation of for an examination which will authorize you with a license is similar with the preparation of a patient before a surgery. All the requirements and standards should be closely observed to be able to have less complication after the surgery which represents the local board examination. Any deficiencies before the surgery will take the patient to a great risk which is similar to the students. This is maybe just some of the benefits of pre-board examination and a lot more benefits will be seen along as you enroll yourself to the program.
Aside from the positive reactions, the respondents also sighted some deficiencies that the school should offer to their students like the proper setting for nursing education. Like proper exposure to the medical technology which they will encounter in the future. Community exposure is very limited that is the reason why only a limited knowledge was acquired. Central Colleges of the Philippines is at its peak in the aspect of knowledge because the educational system was very challenging but skill and attitude towards the profession is also vital in nursing profession.
According to a student, Central Colleges of the Philippines College of Nursing is not active with the extra curriculum. Unlike the other colleges which were found to be very active in participating the school program. And for them to be inspired studying, fame will be an edge for the student to love their school. There must be a program that could help in marketing the name of the school at the same time there will be “touch of a nurse”. As the whole result of this research, the graduating students is currently preparing for the incoming pre-board examination and oral revalida.
And these have been an aid for these students to have a positive attitude towards the problem and soon be successful professionals. And therefore Pre-board examination is an evaluative tool for the graduating students to have an excellent performance in the National board examination. CHAPTER VI Recommendation Based on the study conducted on a research, the following additional program is recommended and suggested. Film Viewing Film viewing is the best way of visualization of the reality. Through this method, the students will be able to witness how and what it is to be a future health care provider.
Care giver played by Ms. Sharon Cuneta only reflects the sacrifices of the Filipino health care provider abroad. This film shows the trans-cultural aspect of nursing. This will contribute to the students by having an idea of the pressures of the outside world of nursing. Part of this program is the series of ER, HOUSE which is available on DVD format. This series shows some stories of the breath taking events happening inside the hospital setting. Through this, the Students will be having the opportunity to be familiar with the other nursing and medical procedure shown in the movie.
Together with these benefits is that the student will be motivated to understand and speak English more effective. This method can be a comprehensive way of learning. There are no more reasons for the teachers to hardly visualize some scenario, procedure to the students because through this “film viewing” the students are oriented. Herbal Plant- Planting Knowledge alone is insufficient, application and execution of the knowledge is also needed. Herbal plants are usually taught during Community health nursing and society, science and technology subject.
This is an alternative medicine which ideally should be available in community settings. Yet, this is not yet available for the students to see it personally at CCP-CON. Therefore this program should be readily available because this program contributes the students to be familiar with the different herbal plants and for them to value these traditional medicines. Planting is also recommended to promote a healthy environment within the school. In having this environment inside the CCP-CON motivates the students to effectively understand the use of these herbal plants.
And availability of these plants would be very helpful for community health nursing and also for personal application of the knowledge. PHILIPPINE NATIONAL RED CROSS Philippine National Red Cross is volunteer organizations which have served the citizen for almost 80 years. Being part of this organization is a best way in acquiring for the character of humanism. Philippine National Red Cross offers different program fit to the field of Nursing. Like Community Health Service, Basic Life Support Training, Basic Leadership Training etc. These are seminars which are needed to enhance the skills, knowledge and attitude of a student.
This provides the opportunity for the students to exhale their skills in rendering holistic care to the community. And facilitate the student’s personality. This organization would be very helpful for the future career of being a nurse because by joining this organization, students will be socially active in participating an outreach program. This aids the students to be more effective in the field. PNRC also provides competition among different schools. Therefore CCP-CON should also participate to build a name at PNRC to be recognized nationally. Being part of this humanistic call of duty is a Virtue.
Therefore, CCP-CON should motivate their students to be active even with the extracurricular activities. Medical mission Medical mission is an outreach program. These activities should be done outside the school. At a depressed area or barangay. Where there is a need for a voluntary medical mission or a feeding program etc. Nursing is a voluntary act of rendering a health care service to the citizens who are in need. As a future nurse to be, student nurse should be equipped with the experience of being a volunteer. Most of the students are taking up nursing because of the amount of salary they will be having.
Without realizing that, nursing is a “call of duty”. That this profession is for others to be benefited. What is a can of sardines if this will bring out the smiles? The students should understand how much a smile of a child is worth. A little voice of Joyce of an elder, count in promoting holistic care. Through this program CCP-CON could be recognized by the other institution. Imagine, a simply action could have an unexpected product. Let’s start a healthy Nursing Program. And when there is Joy brings smile, yet smile brought joy. APPENDICES APPENDIX A Sample Questionnaire Survey Questionnaire Part I
