Abstract: 

The University of the Philippines College of Nursing curriculum has been the foundation of most of the curriculum in the country. But such is inferior with the current global health care delivery system. With Telehealth as the current program launched as an alternative medium to address health-care needs in geographically isolated areas through the use of ICT, nurses provide care for populations through electronic communication media and act as triage nurses who advise/consult with patients.
