PRC said the oathtaking of new physical and occupational therapists will take place at Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) in Pasay City on July 22. Meanwhile, the oathtaking of new nurses will be on July 29 in the Reception Hall of PICC.  For the new architects, the venue will be the Plenary Hall in PICC on Aug. 13.  Nurse inductees must wear Gala Uniform and Cap as the ceremony kick-off, while physical and occupational therapist oath takers must wear business attires.  PRC said the oath takers must register before noon of the day prior to the ceremony. Since the mass oath will occur in person, participants must bring either a vaccination card, negative results from a reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test, or an antigen Covid-19 test performed 48 hours before the ceremony. At the same time, attendees are asked to bring their oath forms with the generated quick response (QR) code to be submitted during the event to confirm attendance. Those unable to attend may request a special appointment or join the online ceremony, which will be announced once the schedule has been confirmed. PRC also encouraged licensure passers to confirm their attendance in the regions where they took their examination. While the rest of the inductees may start securing their appointment for initial registration right after the ceremony, physical and occupational therapist oath takers may start their registrations on July 24. ***(Sonny Daanoy)***
