Philippine gov't asks for invalidating of oath-taking of nurses over exam leakage

A Philippine government commission probing an alleged leakage of nursing qualification examination Wednesday asked for the invalidating of oath-taking of the nurses who have passed the licensure test, according to local radio DZMM.

The contents of this year's Nursing Board Examination have been allegedly leaked by the president of the Philippine Nursing Association who wanted to let his students pass the exam, local media reported.

The Commission of Filipinos Overseas said in a petition with the Court of Appeals it would ask the appellate court to order a retake of parts of the test that were allegedly leaked to examinees, as the quality and the level of competence of nurses have become suspicious.

The court issued a 60-day temporary restraining order prohibiting the oath-taking of new nurses because of the controversy. Some examinees, however, were able to take their oath before the court order was released Thursday.

The National Bureau of Investigation, meanwhile, has launched a probe to determine who leaked the test questions to the students, the radio said.

Some 17,000 examinees out of 42,000 nursing graduates passed the exam, which was held on June 11 to 12.

The Philippines is a major source of nurses to the United States, Japan and European countries. Local officials are afraid the leakage scandal could jeopardize the country's competitiveness in sending nurses abroad as qualified overseas workers, who send tens of millions of U.S. dollars of remittances each year.
