How to Renew Your PRC License Online without CPD Credits 2021

At this time of pandemic, you can renew your PRC license with partial or no Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits or units, just like I did! 

After three years, my professional license will expire this year, in 2021. And, because of a lack of finances and time before I was hired, I haven't attended any CPD courses since then. As the virus spread, all government offices closed their doors, but online transactions remained open. 

Despite the fact that there were options to apply for online renewal of such a license, I was unable to proceed owing to travel restrictions until I opted to schedule an appointment for the PRC ID pick-up on December 1, 2021 on October 16, 2021.

1. Make an account and fill out all of the required information about your education and other vital details from your PRC license. 
2. You must also upload a photo that corresponds to the requirements; this photo will be utilized and affixed to the PRC card when it is renewed. There are instructions on how to upload photos and what types of photos to use. If the photo does not meet the requirements, the system will reject it.

NOTE: PRC license renewals without full CPD or incomplete units will only be accepted until December 2021.

3. Check the available booking schedule for a specific PRC Satellite office near you; certain areas and regions in the Philippines offer door-to-door PRC card delivery; in my case, the nearest PRC satellite office is Robinson's Starmills in Pampanga, which is a two-hour bus ride away.

4. Pay your corresponding renewal fees; for Nursing its P450 for another three years via Paymaya payment + P8 Paymaya processing fee. 

5. Download and print your scheduled date and time of visit and present it on the date of your visit, do not forget to bring your old PRC license card as they will ask for it for validation. 

6. Arrive early at the satellite office so you may observe and assess the surroundings, as well as how packed or sparse the space will be. Remember, because to the present Covid virus, social distancing and health precautions are required. 

When I inquired if I might forward the form I had with me, I was accommodated 30 minutes sooner than my appointed time.


  1. Hello, Agnes... I have a question...
    My PRC license is about to expire, but I haven't gotten any CPDs. I'm not sure how because I no longer practice (RN). I'm not sure how or where to go to obtain CPDs. Thank you very much!

    1. Hello Polly, go to create an account there and make an appointment to renew your prc license, without CPD credits. You can avail this renewal with CPD until the end of this month so I suggest you do so.
      For the CPD I haven't checked any health or private institution who offers seminars with CPD credits. maybe due to health protocols. Good luck on your renewal.
