Recently, another self-learning module once again facing criticisms for alleged discrimination against nurses. In the photo shown in the learning material, there are drawings of people and the description of their lines of work. In the photo, it was stated that

“Ang karpintero ang gumagawa ng bahay. (The carpenter makes the house.) Ang nars ang katulong o kasama ng doctor. (The nurse is the assistant or companion of the doctor.) Ang chef ang tagaluto ng masasarap na pagkain. (The chef cooks delicious food.)”

While other descriptions seem accurate, the entry describing the work of nurses is getting negative feedback from netizens – especially the word “katulong” which, when translated into English, also refers to a maiden.

Twitter users called DepEd saying it should pay more attention to its modules. Others said that nurses and other members of the health care team deserve all the respect and courtesy.
