2. Visit your school registrar to see if you have completed your requirements:

When preparing for the Philippine Board Exam, it is important that you understand that the board questions that are going to come out are the basic concept that you should know inorder to work as an entry level nurse. What are these concepts that you need to focus on, you might ask?
