Dean favors invalidation of nursing board results

Dean favors invalidation of nursing board results

A board member of the Association of Deans of the Philippine College of Nursing said she is in favor of invalidating the entire results of the recent nursing board examinations following the finding that it was marred by cheating.

Dr. Teresita Sinda, dean of the College of Nursing of Silliman University, Dumaguete City, Oriental Negros said she is even suggesting the dismantling of the old set of examiners in order to preserve the image of the nursing profession.

Sinda is the chairman of the Technical Committee on Nursing Education of the Commission on Higher Education. She said she was saddened by the revelation that 22 colleges of nursing all over the country were involved in the "coaching" two days before the June 11-12 board exams.

The finding prompted the Technical Committee on Nursing Education of the CHED to invalidate the results of Tests 3 and 5 of the nursing board examination.

Sinda said she wants all of the examinees to retake the test in December.

Because of cheating, she said, the integrity and credibility in the nursing profession in the country is at stake.

She also said she told a committee meeting in Manila recently that all of the 42,000 graduates who took the exams must take the tests again.

The Philippine Nurses Association also wants to invalidate the entire examination. The BON had earlier announced that retaking the tests should be voluntary on the part of the examinee.

The United Kingdom, United States of America, Canada and other countries are all eyes on the Philippines as to how the cheating and manipulation issues are being treated and resolved, Sinda said.

Silliman University sent only three examinees to the last board examination, she revealed.*JG
