Junking of nurses' oath-taking sought

Junking of nurses' oath-taking sought

A government commission probing the alleged leakage in the June 2006 Nursing Board Examination will file Wednesday a petition with the Court of Appeals seeking to invalidate the oath-taking of nurses who passed the controversial licensure test.

"[We want] to invalidate the oath-taking because our basis is the passing average. We think that they have brought down the level of competence. This is not a question of competent are they? We are talking about the lives of people here," Ang told a DZMM interview.

Ang, head of the Commission on Filipinos Overseas, said that the petition would ask the appellate court to order a retake of Tests 3 and 5, the modules that were allegedly leaked to examinees.

"The [Professional Regulation Commission] invalidated [the results of the] two subjects from their computation so they had to adjust the passing average. The quality and the level of competence [of nurses] became suspicious [because of that]," said Ang.

The court issued a 60-day temporary restraining order prohibiting the oath-taking of new nurses because of the controversy. Some examinees, however, were able to take their oath before the court order was released Thursday.

PRC said a permit allowing new nurses to take their oath was issued Wednesday last week while debates were ongoing on the source of the alleged leakage. Reports said that some nurses took their oath in Manila and parts of the Visayas.

The National Bureau of Investigation, meanwhile, has launched a probe to determine who leaked the test questions to students, at least two review centers and several nursing college deans.

Some 17,000 examinees out of 42,000 nursing graduates passed the June 11-12 exam.


PRC lahat may kasalanan! Pati tayo damay!
