Another nursing exam weighed

Another nursing exam weighed
Manila Times, July 15, 2006, Saturday

The more than 42,000 aspiring nurses who took the board exams last month may have to retake the tests, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) said on Friday.

“That is an option,” PRC Chairman Leonor Tripon-Rosero said on GMA 7’s evening news program.

On Thursday the PRC confirmed that test questions had been leaked to examinees who took the test at a review center in Baguio City. The commission said two members of the PRC’s Board of Nursing have been implicated in the leakage and that charges were being prepared against them by a fact-finding panel.

Rosero did not identify the two officials.

ABS-CBN News said the two were earlier directed by the board to disqualify themselves from the processing and release of the results pending the investigation.

“This leakage irregularity shall be referred to the National Bureau of Investigation for its own investigation and determination of all persons and parties involved and their criminal prosecution under the law,” the PRC’s fact-finding body said.

The exams, given from June 11 to 12, had five subjects, each with 100 questions. The results were supposed to have been released last week.

The Philippines has deployed more than 100,000 nurses abroad, mainly in the Middle East, the United States and Europe.

The country has 460 nursing schools, 40 of which were said to have a zero passing rate in the board exam. Twenty-three reportedly failed to make the minimum passing rate of eight percent.
