Boholano nurses take oath in Cebu

Boholano nurses take oath in Cebu

Despite controversies hounding the recent nursing board examinations Boholano passers rushed to Cebu City last Thursday to take oath beating the temporary restraining order (TRO) issued by the Court of Appeals Friday afternoon.

However, due to the unscheduled oath-taking rites, Nursing Colleges here failed to monitor how many of their board passers went to Cebu City to be formally sworn in as registered nurses.

Over two-hundred Boholano new nurses passed the exams held last June. Nationwide, over 42,000 nursing graduates took the exams while only 17,821 passed.

Reports from the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) 7, revealed that more than 1,200 nurses, or close to 70% of the 1,723 total passers, took their oaths after acting PRC 7 Director Dan Malayang received a text message and a memorandum order 2006-06 from PRC Chairperson Leonor Rosero last Wednesday afternoon authorizing the oath-taking.

The TRO was issued by the CA against the originally scheduled August 22 oath-taking ceremonies pending the resolution of the leakage of test questions controversy. The Senate is currently looking into the alleged leakage.

Malayang said that after he received the text message from Rosero, he immediately sent it to PRC personnel to inform the board passers.

The oath-taking rites took only less than five minutes.

Early Thursday morning Philippine Nurses’ Association (PNA) Bohol President Francisca Baluyot called up station dyRD to inform passers to proceed immediately to Cebu City for the emergency rites.
