The controversy continues...

Desperation has begun to take over the nursing graduates who took the controversial 2006 nursing licensure examinations.


Hovering around the office of the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) office in Sampaloc, Manila, a number of these graduates who advocate a "no re-take’’ stance yesterday expressed how aggravated they feel over the temporary restraining order (TRO) issued against their oath-taking and registration as professional nurses.

"Pangarap namin ang sinira nila, pano naman yung mga nagbenta pa ng kalabaw para lang may maipang bayad sa board at review," said a board passer who requested anonymity.

Some even condemned the University of Santo Tomas (UST) for initiating and pushing this move. UST nursing school officials and students have been very vocal in advocating a ‘’retake’’ to clear everyone’s name once and for all.

"Bakit kami nadadamay? Hindi dapat kami magsuffer, we’re only students, pinaghirapan namin ito," he said adding.

Ironically, it is the students’ welfare that the UST officials are taking into consdieration.

"The students are the ones suffering from this leakage issue," said Prof. Rene Tadle, president of the University of Sto. Tomas (UST) Faculty of Nursing Association and the Task Force Leakage. "Passer or not, their credibility is and will always be questioned if they are given license as nurses."

Students from other nursing schools have supported UST’s stand.

"We are here to help uplift the credibility of nurses and future nurses by supporting their stand for a retake of the tests," said Ayeza Tumagil, 19, a 4th year nursing student of St. Joseph College in Cavite City. "Though right now we are not affected, whatever result this will have will surely affect us,’’ Tumagil added.

Neo Belmonte, 21, also a 4th year student of St. Joseph, added: "We are here to fight for the truth, integrity and justice."

The St. Joseph students said their dean Marco Antonio Sto. Tomas told them of what happened. They volunteered to join the Task Force Leakage asking for a re-examination.

"The integrity and competency of Filipino nurses are now being questioned by foreign employers, and this may cause discrimination against Filipino nurses and may affect even the future of nurses," explained Belmonte.


NOT THE SOLUTION

Anthony D. Palaypay, 27, a board passer from Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Pasig (PLP) said a retake is not the solution to the problem. A speedy process to penalize the ones responsible for the leakage is.

"Only few benefited from the leakage, that’s why for everyone to retake it without proper investigation is unfair and unjustifiable because they are putting the 42,000 who took the test at risk and,’’ he said.

Victor Tan, 31, of Dr. Lantin College, questioned UST’s dragging and involving nursing undergraduates in the controversy.

"What right are they fighting for when they haven’t even graduated? They are assaulting our credibility," Tan cried.

Herbert Tolentino, 21, of Arellano University said their school got only 31 percent passing rate, a proof that they were not able to get hold of the leaked document. "Why then do we have to suffer from a retake?" he asked.

Tolentino, however, admitted that they are open for an investigation but it must be made without anyone from the PRC or the Bureau of Nursing since they are the ones linked to the much-talked about anomaly.

The students are the ones suffering from UST's issue! What is the issue really about? That UST insists on a retake in order to clear the issue (as if it will)? Or we all work together to condemn those who spread the leakage, the ROOT of all who did this?
Don't tell me the students are more competent than us?! Who are they to call for a retake!? FYI, you don't know and you don't have any idea what the board really is. Mind your own business and worry bout your scrubs and if makakagraduate kayo.

guyz..those students are from st.joseph...dean nila si marco sto.tomas for sure na brainwash ung mga students dun or baka mandatory din tulad ng ust magjoin ng task force leakage........tsk....nakikialam kau dito eh hndi naman kayo involve at hindi kau ang kumuha ng exams! You better attend your classes para makagraduate kayo at maranasan niyo kumuha ng board exams bago kau magsalita!

bkit mga students pa lng, nakikisali na sa issue ng NLE? students, madali lng sa inyo sabihin ang retake kc nde kayo ang nkaexperience ng mga pinaghirapan nmen.. time, money, anxiety during d review.. dpat asikasuhin nio pagaaral nio, cgrduhin nio n makakagarduate kau.. wag na kau makisali sa issue na 'to.. we're the victims here, esp those who passed fair and square..


punish the culprits.. not us..
optional na ang retake.. so sa mga gus2 ng retake, edi mgretake kau.. walang pumipigil.. wag nio na kme idamay.. kc ayaw nmen..


Let's just move on.. and pray..
