The Professional Regulation Commission announced Tuesday it has canceled the conduct of licensure exams for midwives and nurses in the calamity-hit city this month and in December, respectively.

Examinees who are supposed to take in Tacloban have been advised to transfer to the nearest and most accessible PRC testing centers.
