The section 2 of the Overseas Pack includes a series of forms which you need to send to relevant authorities so that they can complete and return them to NMBI. Take note that NMBI cannot accept completed forms from Section 2 from you, the applicant. Instead, the relevant authorities must return completed forms directly to NMBI.
You must send the Verification (CCPS) Form to the relevant competent authority. The authority must complete the form and send it directly to NMBI with a Verification Certificate (CCPS).
The CCPS can be requested from the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC). They already know what papers are required for Filipino nurses applying for the NMBI. When I went to the PRC (Cebu office), they filled out the CCPS Form and also provided me a Certificate of Good Standing wherein all the details required by the NMBI are stated.
The Transcript of Training Form is required for the NMBI to verify your nursing training with the Higher Education Institution(s) where you completed your nursing degree.
When I processed this part of Section 2, I attached together with this form my Transcript of Records (TOR), Summary of Related Learning Experience (RLE) and Course Summary/Description. Although not stated explicitly by the NMBI, I decided to attach these documents to assure that the NMBI will have all the related information to complete their assessment of my nursing education in the Philippines. I also wanted to avoid extra expenses if ever the NMBI will request these documents in the later part of the application.
The College Dean must be the one to complete, sign and return this form to the NMBI. Again, you must not be the one to send this back to the NMBI.
The Employer’s Reference Form is required from your current employer to provide a professional reference covering the previous 12 month period from the date of your application to NMBI.
If you have been at your current place of employment for less than 12 months, you will need another employer to also provide a professional reference to cover the required 12 month period.
The Employer Reference Form must be completed and signed by one of the following:
- Director of Nursing/Midwifery or
- Matron or
- Nurse/Midwife Manager
If anyone else signs the Employer Reference Form, a full written explanation must be provided stating why one of the individuals above has not authorized the reference.
If you have done Graduate Studies or Masteral Courses, you need to fill out the Graduate Programme Form.
Once you have completed this stage, you will proceed with the assessment of your application which is the 4th step in the NMBI’s 5-stage Overseas Application.
