he Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) oversees the licensing of registered nurses as authorized by the Philippine Nursing Act of 2002.A Professional Regulatory Nursing Board implements and enforces the Nursing Act. The board is composed of a chairperson and six

additional members, all of whom are nurses with at least a master's degree and ten years of nursing experience. The board inspects nursing schools, conducts licensure examinations, issues and monitors certificates of licensure, promulgates a code of ethics, participates in recognizing nursing specialty organizations, and prescribes guidelines and regulations governing the profession under the Nursing Act. In the nursing act, nurses are required to be kind and be harmonious to anyone. Thisi ncludes patients relatives and the healthcare team. Essential to nurses attitude is communication. Cmmunication is a key tool that health care professionals must use to elicit cooperation among individuals in the delivery of health care services. It is an integral part of socialization and imperative in establishing relationships. In the medical community, it can be described as a process for sharing information through utilization of a set of common rules. These rules vary with circumstances: for instance, the transfer of information can be interrupted by situational pressure; differences between the professionals' perspectives can interfere with shared meanings; and the rules of the process of communication can be changed with inappropriate responses. Communication among health professionals can: (1) increase awareness of a health issue, problem, or solution; (2) affect attitudes to create support for individual or collective action; (3) demonstrate or illustrate skills; (4) increase demand for health services; (5) inform or reinforce knowledge, attitudes, or behavior. With the disciplines of medicine and nursing working in close proximity, communication is not just practicing together, but individually interacting to achieve a common good: the health and well-being of patients. Human communication is a subset of communication. It refers to the interaction between people through the use of symbolic language. For example, it can be an ongoing dialogue about a patient concern, behavior, attitude, or diagnosis. It reflects how medical professionals seek to maintain health and deal with health-related issues. These transactions that occur among health professionals can be verbal or nonverbal, oral or written, personal or impersonal, and issue oriented or relationship oriented.
