Nursing colleges in Abra proud but wary of nursing exam scandal

Nursing colleges in Abra proud but wary of nursing exam scandal

By Maritess B. BeƱas

BANGUED, Abra (28 August) -- While deans of the colleges of nursing here are proud that they did not dip a finger in the nursing board examinations' scandal in June 2006, they have showed anxiety of the possible effect in the market while no one has been convicted yet.

Ms. Josephine Manzanares, the newly appointed dean of the College of Nursing in the Abra Valley Colleges said, their graduates are lucky that they failed to take the board exams last June considering the action of the Professional Regulatory Commission and the Board of Nursing for the more than 17,000 board passers to take a re-test to clear their names and be able to practice their profession or go abroad.

The AVC graduates failed to submit their documentary requirements for the board exams when their dean resigned and no one facilitated the preparations. "Maybe this is a blessing for our graduates," she said as they are spared of double spending for the board exams.

Dr. Delia B. Pascua, Dean for Academic Affairs of the Divine Word College of Bangued likewise expressed jubilation that not a single DWC school from the country joined the 22 deans who went to the cinema where test questions were allegedly flashed to the big screen the night before the board examination.

She said, however, that it would be unfair for those passers who did not benefit from the leakage as they are required to take the re-test. She is saddened by the scandal because of fear that the market for the nursing program might be affected since the credibility of the profession is now tainted by the act of just a few who remains not convicted.
