CA asked to lift TRO on nurses’ oath-taking

CA asked to lift TRO on nurses’ oath-taking

THE COURT of Appeals has been asked by a group of nursing students who passed the recent licensure exams to allow them to take their oaths, register, and receive their licenses.

The petitioners made the appeal after the Appellate Court issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) that prevented them from taking their oaths last August 22.

In their 10-page Petition in Intervention, the group's counsel Rene Saguisag said a retake of the exam would be unfair to 17, 281 who passed the Licensure Exam for Nurses.

Saguisag said contrary to claims by the College Nursing Faculty Association of the University of Sto. Tomas (UST), League of Concerned Nurses, and Binuklod na Samahan ng mga Student Nurse (Federation of Student Nurses’ Organizations), the results of the exams failed to show massive cheating caused by the leakage.

"The June 2006 examinees posted a class passing average of 42.42 percent, the lowest in the last 10 years. That indicates that no massive cheating occurred and that the would-be intervenors claim of passing cleanly and honestly cannot be treated dismissively," Saguisag said.

Saguisag said they supported the investigation to determine who should be held liable for the leakage but that this should not prejudice the future of the passers.

"Petitioners should not be allowed to be cheated out of the opportunity to benefit from the result of their blood, toil, sweat and tears for years at great expense to their parents and those who supported them at a very difficult time for everyone," Saguisag said.

Saguisag also said that local and foreign employers had other ways of knowing the competency of nurses aside from the licensure exam, which he claimed was not even required abroad.

Intervenors include Renato Aquino Jr., Ronald Bangui, Jawein Soleil Barrera, Deborah Cabanag, Precious Marian Calvario, Reana Diago, Wyeth Vinn Marin, Odette Racacho, Victor Tan Jr., Suzane Bernadette Teneza, and Mary Grace Urquiaga.

Two weeks ago, the Court of Appeals stopped the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) and the Board of Nursing from invalidating two portions of the licensure tests that had been suspected of being leaked to the examinees.

The reported leak has prompted authorities to re-compute the scores based on the average ratings in the other parts of the test.


Tama pong lahat ang mga sinabi ni Ginoong Saguisag. Kailangan i-release na ang lisensiya ng mga pumasa. Hindi lang naman local board exam and pinagbabasehan ng pagka-employ sa abroad kundi meron talaga silang sariling NCLEX at CRNE (sa Canada) at sariling screening kung talagang qualified ang isang nurse na magtrabaho sa kanila.

Pakiusap lang sa Court of Appeals, paki-lift na po ang TRO ninyo para naman makuha na namin ang lisensiya namin at makapag-trabaho na po kami. Tama na ang sensationalism sa leakage na yan. Napakasakit KUYA EDDIE and mga ginagawa na ng Court of Appeals sa aming mga pumasa.
