If you are a nursing student drop out but had a change of heart and decided to go back to school and pursue a nursing course again, you may want to assess your options. Most especially if you have taken your Nursing Care Management (NCM) courses like NCM 101 and 102. In most schools the subjects for the old CMO #30 are not being offered anymore because they are implementing the new CHED CMO #14. One has to follow the subjects for the new curriculum, meaning the students has to repeat her NCM subjects because, course descriptions are different.
For example, in CMO 14, NCM 101 is Care of Mother, Child and Family, NCM 102 is Care of Mother, Child, Family and Population Group at-Risk Or with Problems, plus subjects like Health Assessment and Theoretical Foundations of Nursing. There is no Health Care 1 and 2 subjects in CMO #14. New subjects are nursing informatics and 2 elective subjects in the fourth year.
In the old CMO # 30, NCM 102 is Medical and Surgical nursing, and Physical assessment is integrated in NCM 100.In such cases, you have to re-enroll such courses again to be in line with CMO #14. Before enrollment, better clear this up with your course adviser and school registrar.
I suggest that you scout for schools still offering the old curriculum until next semester (October 2010) so that your previous courses will not be wasted and you will not be required to re enroll subjects in order to be in line with CMO # 14.
