Additional areas may be adopted by the BoN upon request depending on the capability of the combined forces of PNA and ADPCN to organize and lead the Oathtaking Ceremony in the said area. The BoN on deck for such requests are: Hon. Leonila A. Faire, Hon. Amelia B. Rosales, and Hon. Marco Sto Tomas. The Board of Nursing believes this activity brings government particularly PRC and the Board of Nursing closer to our public/constituents.

(2)The BoN strongly recommends that all Regional Oathtaking Ceremonies apply/follow the “Prototype” Oathtaking Program as used in the National Capital Region (NCR) (with minor modifications as applied in the Regions) as provided for in our Oathtaking Souvenir Program.

(3)The names of all successful examinees released in newspapers of national circulation and printed by the Board of Nursing in the National Oathtaking Souvenir Program and together with other relevant and timely issuances/articles these are considered “historic documents”. It is therefore strongly recommended that regional oathtaking partners include in their budget the cost of this souvenir program so that every successful examinee/new nurse may avail of the same,

In view hereof, all regional organizing partners are hereby advised to place your orders directly at least 2-3 weeks prior to scheduled Regional/Satellite Oathtaking Ceremonies for timely delivery through the EDUCATIONAL PUBLISHING HOUSE or JADE BOOKSTORE, Manila at Tele-Fax Numbers (02) 288-7278 or (02) 525-0468. The souvenir program cost shall be Php 150.00 each and freight cost shall be borne by the oathtaking host organizer.

(4)For purposes of better synchronicity and organization we advise all our oathtaking partners to keep communications open through:

Ms. Edna Luna, BoN Secretary, PRC Central Office at P. Paredes St., Sampaloc, Manila at Telephone Nos. (02) 735 1534 / 735 4476 / 736 3619 / 736 2250; or The BoN website & BoN e mail access address: www.bonphilippines.org or [email protected]

NOTE: The NCR Oathtaking Ceremonies for New Nurses can be viewed nationwide/worldwide/mobile phone by live streaming through BoN Website.

Very truly yours,
