The Directory of Nursing Associations in the Philippines

Here is the list of the updated nursing organizations in the Philippines with some contact information that would be helpful. 

The nursing profession in the Philippines have a loose network of different nursing organizations that help cultivate a very rich and dynamic nursing culture - all from different nursing specialties and interests. This makes the nursing profession so broad that many nursing organizations are not much known to a common nurse. To date, there are more than 25  nursing specialty & interest organizations in the country.

However, in March 2008, there was an initiative to unite and establish cooperation among different nursing organizations through the PRC Board of Nursing. This initiative was then known the Coordinating Body for Good Governance of the Nursing Profession (CBGGNP), which was attended by nursing organizations during that time at Sulu Hotel in Manila. 

The said convention aimed to conduct dialogues with different nursing organization to (1) commit working together as a unified nursing profession, (2) draw the nursing profession roadmap, and (3) identify technical working groups. It is also the way for the BON to make its presence felt in all major nursing activities of the organizations. Through the CBGGNP, nursing organizations would be able to provide immediate feedback in the Nursing Roadmap 2030 which is now in the pipeline.
