Test leak derailed plan to hold NCLEX in RP?

Test leak derailed plan to hold NCLEX in RP?

THE leakage in the nursing licensure examination may have spoiled the Philippine lobby to establish a test center here for Filipinos trying to enter the nursing profession in the US, Catanduanes Rep. Joseph Santiago said.

Santiago said the Professional Regulation Commission, Philippine Nursing Association and the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration have for years been trying to persuade the US National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) to allow the conduct of the NCLEX in Manila.

The NCLEX, or National Council Licensure Examination, is the last step in the nurse eligibility process in the US — the equivalent of the Philippines’ nursing licensure test.

Outside the US, the NCLEX may be taken only in centers in American Samoa, Australia, Canada, Germany, Guam, Hong Kong, India, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, Taiwan, the United Kingdom and Virgin Islands.

“India and South Korea have NCLEX centers. This is one of the reasons why their nursing graduates are finding it easier to pass the test and enter the US nursing profession,” Santiago pointed out.

“Our nursing graduates have to travel abroad to take the NCLEX, and this tends to create accompanying disadvantages and pressures,” he added.

Santiago said the NCSBN had been reluctant to allow the conduct of the NCLEX in the Philippines “precisely because of misgivings about the ability to protect the integrity of documents here.”
