CHED told to monitor
nursing schools

The Trade Union Congress of the Philippines is urging the Commission on Higher Education to step up the monitoring of nursing schools around the country as their enrollments continue to surge this schoolyear.

TUCP said in a press statement that regulators must be extra vigilant to ensure that nursing students are kept away from substandard schools and are protected against the proliferation of so-called "diploma mills."

It cited records showing that more than 400 nursing schools in the country have 632,108 students enrolled for school year 2007-2008, up by 145,875 or 30 percent from the 486,233 enlisted last year.
