Nurses’ ass’n prexy quits

Nurses’ ass’n prexy quits

Philippine Nurses Association (PNA) President George Cordero resigned last Wednesday from his post after examinees of the June Nursing Licensure Examination linked him to the leakage in the test.

The PNA board said that Cordero’s resignation was immediately accepted "with much regret." It also said that it wants to preserve the integrity of the nursing profession.

The board immediately installed Dr. Marilyn Yap as Cordero’s replacement.

Cordero’s name was dragged into the controversy after witnesses testified at the Senate hearing that he allegedly headed the coaching of some 1,000 nursing students on June 8 and 9 inside a cinema at the SM Manila.

The former PNA president, who owns a nursing school and review center, allegedly paid for the trip of some members of the Board of Nursing to Switzerland as additional "perk" for leaking the exams. He was likewise accused of paying R7 million to the Bureau of Nursing Examiners to get the test leakage.

Prior to his resignation, Cordero denied the accusation and even threatened to file libel charges against his accusers.

Yap vowed to restore the integrity of the nursing profession.

"It’s a heavy responsibility but if we work together, there’s no burden we cannot carry. As of this (yesterday) morning, we’re going to create a core group that will map out our directions," she said.

She echoed her group’s position that the oathtaking for examinees in the nursing board exam would be on Aug. 22.

Those who want to retake the exams, she added would have to pay fees amounting to P900 and waive the "higher" grade if the retaken exam yields a lower grade.

"They will also have to wait until December to take their oaths but at least they can be proud," she said. (Shianee R. Mamanglu)
