NURSING BOARD PASSERS LAUNCH SIGNATURE DRIVE VS CA ORDER

NURSING BOARD PASSERS LAUNCH SIGNATURE DRIVE VS CA ORDER

MANILA, AUGUST 25, 2006 (STAR) By Sheila Crisostomo - Board passers in the leakage-tainted nursing licensure exam last June have formed an alliance and launched a signature drive to demand the prosecution of the perpetrators of the irregularities without sacrificing their wishes not to take another exam.

Renato Aquino, head of the "Alliance of New Nurses," said that they have decided to join forces "so that their voices will be heard."

The group laments the fact that they are being sacrificed by some sectors that are pressing for a retake of Tests 3 and 5.

"This is an informal group but we felt we have to join forces so that our voices will be heard. We are the victims here but we are the ones being prosecuted," he told The STAR.

He said they would collect the signatures of all those who passed the board and submit this to Malacañang, the Senate, House of Representatives and other concerned bodies.

"We are trying to reach out to those in the provinces through the friends of our friends... We are definitely against the retake of exams. It is unfair for us to go through sleepless nights prior to and after the exam just to satisfy the request of a few," he noted.

Aquino said many of the nursing board passers come from provinces and they spend for their board and lodging to review in Metro Manila.

"For those of us who were working, we gave up our jobs or took months off from work without the benefit of compensation just to concentrate on the Board. We missed family gatherings, had broken relationships to get a passing mark," he said.

The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) supports the position of the passers in not taking another nursing exam and gave assurances that the leaked questions have been excluded.

But various sectors, including the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) which has been convincing the United States to put up a National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) testing center in the Philippines, are in favor of a retake of Tests 3 and 5.

Aquino added those behind the leakage should be identified and prosecuted and appealed that they be spared from personal persecution.

"We already suffered persecution from media branding us as a batch of cheaters when in fact, hardly anyone bothered to seek us out to air our side. We were able to pass the board exams with our integrity intact, upholding the family names our parents and our forefathers worked so hard to keep clean," he added.

Meanwhile, the PRC reiterated yesterday that nursing board passers truly deserved the grades they earned.

In a joint statement issued by PRC Chairman Leonor Rosero, Commissioners Avelina dela Rea and Renato Valdecantos and Board of Nursing chair Dr. Eufemia Octaviano and members Drs. Remedios Hernadez, Letty Kuan and Estelita Galutira, they gave assurances that the "June 2006 passers are real passers."

"The results of the examination have been cleansed of leaked questions. The released June results are clean," they said.

The officials branded as "purely speculative" fears that NCLEX would not be put up in the Philippines because of the leakage controversy.

"The nursing leaders calling for a retake of the exams are offering a sacrifice that has not been made a condition by the NCLEX. More serious steps of cleansing the profession’s ranks may be more convincing," they added.

ang ganda ng news na to, nakakagaan ng loob, lalo na yung last part. yung mga nasa posisyon mismo ang nagbibigay ng label/stigma sating mga june passers, samantalang sila dapat na mga nasa posisyon ang dapat linisin. sana maisip ng mga pro retake na mga nursing leaders ang source ng leakage, kaya sila dapat ang magsuffer nde tayo na mga boardpassers.

TAKOT LANG KAYO MAG RETAKE KASI ALAM NINYO NA HINDI KAYO COMPETENT!!!!

optional retake naman, so ano pa ang problema ng iba dyan, magretake nalang kayo uste, para matapos na ang problema at wag nyo na kami idamay..... kayo nalang...

ANG YABANG NAMAN NUNG ISA DYAN..E DI IKAW MAGRETAKE!

Sana alam ng mga Journalist ang ibig sabihin ng responsible journalism. Madalas kase when we read the papers or watch the news we are misinformed.

HAYAAN NYO NA YANG NAGSABI NA DI COMPETENT ANG MGA PUMASA DAHIL MALAMANG DI SIYA PUMASA... ANYWAY,THE POINT IS....THE PHILIPPINE NURSING LEADERS HAVE FAILED ALL FILIPINO NURSES...IF ANYTHING THE JUNE 2006 PHILIPPINE NURSING BOARD EXAMINEES DESERVE NOTHING LESS THAN A PUBLIC APOLOGY FROM THE BOARD OF NURSING (BON), THE ASSOCIATION OF DEANS IN PHILIPPINE COLLEGES OF NURSING (ADPCN) AND PHILIPPINE NURSES ASSOCIATION (PNA) FOR THEIR UNDESERVED SUFFERING, BEING DISCRIMINATED AND LABELED AS CHEATS AND/OR INCOMPETENTS IN PRINT AND ON NATIONAL TELEVISION, WHEN NONE OF THE FACTS POINT TO SUCH A BROAD CONCLUSION.
IT HAS BEEN FOUND OUT THAT THE PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE EARLY RELEASE OF BOARD TEST QUESTIONS ARE MEMBERS OF THE BON, FORMER ADPCN MEMBERS AND MEMBERS IN GOOD STANDING OF THE PNA.
THE JUNE 2006 NURSING BOARD EXAMINEES SHOULD NOT BE SCAPEGOATS, FOR THE LAPSE IN JUDGMENT OR MORALITY, OF THOSE WHO WERE TRUSTED WITH POSITIONS TO UPHOLD AND PROTECT THE NURSING PROFESSION.
THE BOARD PASSERS SHOULD NOT BE SACRIFICIAL LAMBS IN A WITCH HUNT THAT DEMANDS THEM TO SURRENDER NOTHING LESS THAN THEIR DIGNITY AND SELF RESPECT, BY RETAKING THE BOARD EXAMS.
THOSE WHO FAILED, AND THE FUTURE EXAMINEES, DESERVE TO HAVE THE PEACE OF MIND THAT THEY HAVE BEEN GIVEN AND WILL BE GIVEN A FAIR CHANCE IN THE NURSING LICENSURE EXAMS TO COME.
ON WHAT MORAL HIGH GROUND DOES THE BON, ADPCN AND PNA STAND ON, TO THINK THAT THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO DEMAND (THEY NEVER ASKED NICELY NOR DID THEY EVER GIVE OPTIONS) FROM THE JUNE 2006 BOARD EXAMINEES A HEROIC DEMONSTRATION OF THE VALUES OF HONESTY, JUSTICE AND INTEGRITY?... VALUES THEY SHOULD HAVE GUARANTEED PRESENT IN ALL NURSING BOARD EXAMS. VALUES THEY HAVE SHOWN TO BE WANTING IN THEIR RANKS (AS EVIDENCED BY THE CULPRITS), BUT NOT AMONG THE EXAMINEES (AS EVIDENCED BY THE COMPLAINANTS). THEY HAVE, INSTEAD, BURDENED ALL FILIPINO NURSES TO CONSTANTLY DEFEND THE PROFESSION THEY, AS NURSING LEADERS, WERE TRUSTED NEVER TO COMPROMISE.
THE JUNE 2006 BOARD PASSERS, OTHER EXAMINEES AND OTHER NURSES DESERVE AN APOLOGY FOR THE TARNISHED LEGACY THEIR SENIOR COLLEAGUES IN THE BON HAVE LEFT FOR THEM IN THE NURSING PROFESSION. THESE NURSING LEADERS HAVE ILLUSTRATED TO THE WORLD THAT NEITHER A LICENSE, A ROW OF TITLES NOR YEARS OF EXPERIENCE GUARANTEES A GOOD FILIPINO NURSE… AND THEY HAVE MADE IT VERY DIFFICULT FOR OTHER FILIPINO NURSES TO REFUTE THIS.
MOST OF ALL, THE EXAMINEES DESERVE AN APOLOGY FOR THE DETERMINED EFFORTS OF THE BON, ADPCN, AND PNA TO UNDERMINE THE RIGHTS OF THE INNOCENT AND, IN THE PROCESS, HIDE THEIR LACK OF HONESTY, THEIR LACK OF A SENSE OF JUSTICE AND THEIR LACK OF INTEGRITY AS PHILIPPINE NURSING LEADERS.

A nurse in the US was asked by an American co worker… “Did you also cheat in your exams and got away with it?”… What are the chances that people have the same question in mind for you?.....whatever your profession may be….

kung gagawing optional lang ang retake, pano malilinis ang pangalan ng buong batch. may stigma talaga, at kahit hindi pa palakihin ng media yun, nandun na yun. batch june 2006 will always been in history as the batch with leakage. may leakage ka man o wala, parte ka ng batch 2006.

oo, naniniwala ako na kelangan na maparusahan ang LAHAT ng mga may kasalanan... and that includes the cheaters. if yung PRC, BON o kung sino man ang may koneksyon sa paglabas ng leakage, talagang dapat silang mag bayad sa mga ginawa nila. pero, if you let all the 17,000 get their licenses without even giving the proper sanction to those who cheated, diba it's like letting the cheaters get away with their crime din. dapat intindihin din kasi na kung ikaw yung isa sa 17,000 na malinis ang konsensya na nakapasa, d mo dapat ibaba ang sarili mo kasama ng mga di dapat na makapasa.

walang mawawala sa iyo kung mag reretake ka ng exam. board passer ka na e. more or less, may idea ka na kung pano ang mga tanong sa board exams. at kung pumasa ka noong june, naniniwala ako na papasa ka rin ng december. naniniwala ako sa luck factor but more than anything, pag pinaghirapan ang isang bagay makakamit mo rin kung ano man ang gusto mong makamit.

ngayon, lahat tayo nakabin bin sa paghihintay ng desisyon kung ano ba ang nararapat na hakbang ukol sa leakage na ito. ang pede lang natin gawin ay maghintay at ipagdasal na kung ano man ang maginging desisyon ng korte suprema ay siyang nararapat.

opinion ko lang ito at nirerespeto ko ang opinion ng iba pang mag cocomment dito. tulad ng karamihan sa inyo na ayaw ng retake, board passer din ako kaya a part of myself also believes in what the anti-retake are fighting for. kaya lang, i can't help to think na meron akong malinis na konsensya tapos madudumihan lang dahil sa mga ibang nakakuha ng leakage.

again, this is just my opinion. feel free to post your cause i really want hear the anti-retake's side. thanks.

Anong walang mawawala if we retake the exams??? How about our dignity and self-respect and effort?...
I will retake the board exam only if I HAVE TO... So far I don't... So, unlike some people who will lay thier dignity and self-respect in the hands of people with questionable intentions and vested interests, I will fight like hell for my right to practice the profession I worked so hard for... Aside from having a clear conscience, I know I passed the board exams the moment I walked out of my testing center... leakge or no leakage issues... I prepared for the worst and it came and I came through...
