GMA rejects retake nursing-exam plan

GMA rejects retake nursing-exam plan

By Sam Mediavilla, Reporter

President Arroyo on Monday rejected the recommendation of Dr. Dante Ang for all examinees who took the leaked nursing board exams on June 26, 2006, to retake the test to clear any doubts about the dignity, integrity and qualifications of those exams’ passers.

Dr. Ang, chairman of the Commission on Overseas Filipinos and head of the presidential task force to get the USA to make the Philippines a site for NLEX tests, made the exam-retake recommendation to prevent other employers from putting a ban, as those in the US state of Arizona, on the hiring of Filipino nurses who belong to the June 2006 batch of board passers.

What President Arroyo prefers, she said, is to get “a win-win solution” from Professional Regulation Commission Chairman Leonor Tipon Ro­sero. The solution, she said, should punish those who cheated and benefited from the leakage in the June 26 exams but spare those who passed the exams without cheating.

Mrs. Arroyo made her remark during an interview with Radio Mindanao Network. She called the network to congratulate it on its 54th founding anniversary.

In the interview she announced that she would place the PRC under the oversight of the Department of Labor and Employment.

She also said she would also sign an executive order placing all board-exam review centers under the Commission on Higher Education.

Chairman Rosero’s resignation has been sought by some people outraged by the nursing-licensure test leakage. The President defended Rosero, saying that the nursing exam was tainted only on the current PRC chief’s watch.

The President explained that putting PRC under the labor department would help expedite the resolution of the controversy, as discussions of the issue will be elevated to Cabinet level.
