Nursing schools, review centers linked to exams mess should be closed down, says solon

Nursing schools, review centers linked to exams mess should be closed down, says solon

Catanduanes Rep. Joseph Santiago has urged the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and the local government units concerned to promptly close down schools and review centers linked to alleged irregularities in the June nursing licensure examinations.

"Nursing schools and review centers that have been directly or indirectly implicated in the alleged cheating have forfeited the privilege to continue to provide educational services. They have no right to stay in business a minute longer," Santiago said.

At least two nursing board review centers — Inress Review Center Inc. and R.A. Gapuz Review Center Inc. — have so far been implicated in the test leakage, according to the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).

Review centers, as local business entities, are under the supervision of local governments.

The PRC also previously indicated that three individuals have so far been linked to the cheating. They are Anesia Dionisio and Virginia Madeja, both former members of the PRC’s Board of Nursing, and George Cordero, the resigned president of the Philippine Nursing Association (PNA).

Cordero also owns Inress and the Philippine College of Health Sciences (PCHS), one of the "substandard" nursing schools in the country, according to CHED.

PCHS, however, produced at least one graduate who managed to land in the top 10 passers in the controversial June licensure examinations.

During a Senate inquiry last week, a nursing graduate who took the June examinations testified that leaked test questions were shown by Cordero to a group of reviewees.

Dennis Bautista said Cordero presented the questions during the final coaching sessions for examinees on June 8 and June 9, two days before the licensure examinations. Bautista said he attended the sessions.

Another examinee, Pamela Ortega, a graduate of PCHS, said that during the June 9 coaching session, she also overhead Cordero as saying that he "did not pay P7 million for nothing."

R.A. Gapuz has denied involvement in the cheating, saying it obtained "in good faith" the leaked questions. The center said it was not aware the questions would actually come out in the examinations.
