Press Release No. 119 – 2012
16 July 2012
The Professional Regulations Commission (PRC), an attached agency of the Department of Labor & Employment (DOLE), has approved the conduct of Special Professional Licensure Board Examination in Riyadh, for Filipino nurses on October 25-27, 2012. This is in support of:
- Bringing the PRC programs and services closer to the Filipino professionals abroad.
- Supporting the professional development and employment competitiveness of our underboard nursing graduates working overseas.
Ambassador Ezzedin Tago explained that with the board exam for nurses, most of the Filipino professionals in Saudi Arabia would have a chance to upgrade their qualifications without going back to the Philippines. In the past, licensure examinations have been successfully conducted here for engineers, architects and accountants.
The Filipino applicants can submit their accomplished application forms together with the requirements to the lead person to be designated by your hospital who will then forward these documents for evaluation to the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO), Philippine Embassy. The cut-off date for the submission of the completed requirements is July 31, 2012.
Interested applicants are advised to download application forms for the examination from the PRC Website, www.prc.gov.ph.
