Govt urged to probe nurses’ exam scandal

Govt urged to probe nurses’ exam scandal

BAGUIO CITY: A signature campaign took off in Baguio in the hope that the government would order an investigation into the alleged leakage of questions during the last licensure examination for nurses.

Lawyer Cheryl Daytec-Yangot, counsel for the discontented nursing graduates who took the board in Baguio, said there is a snowballing call for a total revamp of the Board of Nursing, including the immediate resignation of George Cordero, Philippine Nurses Association national president.

Yangot said an investigation would hopefully put an end to the controversy, which the nurses deplored has tainted the credibility of the Professional Regulations Commission and the Board of Nursing.

Some members of the House of Representatives have called for an inquiry into the alleged leakage while Sen. Richard Gordon also filed a resolution for a speedy resolution of the case.

Gordon said the scandal could taint the honesty of the entire government-sponsored testing system and smear the image Filipino professionals going out of the country.

Yangot, however, said the impending inquiry in the House and Senate is not the final solution to the problem, saying an investigation would only guide the lawmakers shape appropriate legislation.

Yangot, along with Dean Mary Grace Lacanaria, head of the nursing department of the Saint Louis University, and Ruth Tingda, PNA governor for the Cordilleras and Region I, said their new advocacy is to help protect the integrity of licensure examinations.

In his resolution Gordon said that the world looks to the Philippines to fill the nursing shortages in their countries because Filipino nurses have a reputation for competence, diligence and compassion.
