Negros nurses beat TRO

Negros nurses beat TRO

Beating a temporary restraining order issued by the Court of Appeals ordering a stop to the oath-taking of all nurses within 60 days, 698 nursing board passers of the June 2006 Nurse Licensure Examination in Negros Occidental took their oaths as professional nurses at the L'Fisher Hotel in Bacolod City at about 8:30 a.m. yesterday.

Professional Regulation Commission Regional Director Lily Ann Baldago said 1,256 new nurses in Western Visayas were to take their oaths yesterday. The oathtaking of the nurses from the Panay area would push through yesterday afternoon despites news that the TRO had been issued, she said.

She said she was instructed by the PRC head office to go on with the oathtaking until ordered otherwise, adding that TRO cannot be sent by fax, it has to be served by a sheriff or official courier.

Baldago claimed that the new nurses deserved to take their oaths and have their licenses despite threats of having to retake the examination following an alleged leak in the test questions.

But she urged passers who had benefited from the so-called leakage and had taken their oaths yesterday, to re-take the examination to have a clear conscience.

On Tuesday, Baldago said the PRC and Board of Nursing commissioners gathered all the deans in the country for a consultative meeting where investigation reports on the alleged leakage in the June nursing examination were presented.

Aside from the nursing board passers and their parents, the oath-taking ceremony in Bacolod yesterday morning was attended by Nelsie Guevarra, president of the Philippine Nurses Association - Negros Occidental chapter; Riverside College president Jean Rivera and its College of Nursing dean Dr. Ma. Luisa Parrenas; Marybeth Marcial, College of Nursing dean of the Colegio San Agustin-Bacolod; Joebenie de Villa, College of Nursing dean of the Central Philippines Adventist College in Murcia and Loresita Ann Chua, administrative officer of the University of St. La Salle-Bacolod.

The new nurses also took their oaths as members of the Philippine Nurses Association, administered by Guevarra.

Insp. Augusto Buenaventura, Precinct 9 commander in Bacolod City, yesterday said he is grateful that his daughter, Jona, a nursing graduate of the USLS, had finally taken her oath despite the controversies. He said he will not allow his daughter to re-take the examination.

On the other hand, Editha Ta-octa, mother of Ian Carl Eduard Taocta, a nursing board passer from Riverside College, said she will not stop her son from re-taking the examination because she is confident that he will pass it again.*DMG
