CHED approves the MCU College of Nursing, Medical Technology, and Physical Therapy to hold limited face-to-face classes for School Year 2021-2022

Our MCU College of Nursing, Medical Technology, and Physical Therapy have been allowed by the Commission on Higher Education to hold limited face-to-face classes for Academic Year 2021-2022.

The said classes are not mandatory for all the year levels. For Centralinos, who will not choose to participate may take the Flexible Learning Delivery Mode, a combination of digital and non-digital technology. The three colleges will also offer online distance learning which features the teacher as facilitator and the learners, who are geographically remote from each other during the instruction with the use of Internet.

We, the MCU, submitted our plan to conduct the limited face-to-face activities for some programs because we value the education that we are offering to our Centralinos. The said classes will serve as learning opportunities to help them to become future health care providers. We promised  that we will provide every Centralinos the best and safe-quality education.

Below are the guidelines that should be followed in taking the limited face-to-face classes:

  1. All students should have completed their physical examination in the Health Clinic before the start of face to face.
  2. They should undergo a RT PCR test for Covid-19 two to three days before the start of the face to face encounters.
  3. Appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) should be worn at all times.
  4. Submit to security personnel on the conduct of mandatory body temperature.
  5. Social distancing requirements should strictly be followed.
  6. Classrooms are retrofitted according to safety standards.
  7. Foot traffic in the university premises should be corrected by using visual cues to guide entry and exit into and from the units.
  8. Communal eating is discouraged
  9. Use of stairs shall follow physical distancing rule.
