Updates in nursing is a necessary thing. And by that, the Philippine Board of Nursing put a tinge of change in the classification of subjects in the board examination.

Subjects in Philippine Board Exam

To know more about the re- classification of subjects, please read here.

Previous classication is also divided into five parts that contains one hundred (100) questions.

1. Nursing Practice I: Basic Foundation of Nursing and Professional Nursing Practice (100 items)
2. Nursing Practice II: Community Health Nursing and Care of the Mother and Child (100 items)
3. Nursing Practice III: Care of Clients with Physiologic and Psychosocial Alterations, Part A (100 items)
4. Nursing Practice IV: Care of Clients with Physiologic and Psychosocial Alterations, Part B (100 items)
5. Nursing Practice V: Care of Clients with Physiologic and Psychosocial Alterations, Part C (100 items)

And these five parts will test the knowledge, skills and attitude of an examiner on;

1. Fundamentals of Nursing including Professional Adjustment

2. Maternal and Child Health Nursing

3. Community Health and Communicable Disease Nursing

4. Nursing of Adolescents, Adults and Aged

5. Mental Health and Psychiatric Nursing

In my opinion, the recent re- classification of subjects in the Philippine Nursing Board Examination is an excellent move. Subjects are more distinct. Examiners will know what to focus on each subjects. Unlike when I took the board exam before, my focus was shattered especially in parts 3 to 5. 

Thus, thank you for the changes Board of Nursing. 

As a blogger by interest, it is not my attitude to leave my profession.

In fact, I am just waiting for the right time and right opportunity for it to happen.
