Pimentel: Don’t punish innocent nursing examinees

Pimentel: Don’t punish innocent nursing examinees

Saying the innocent must be spared from punishment, Senate Minority Leader Aquilino Q. Pimentel Jr. (PDP-Laban) yesterday urged the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) to determine who among the examinees benefitted from the leaked nursing licensure exam questions.

Pimentel took this position even as the PRC announced that successful examinees can take their oath as licensed nurses in any PRC office despite the fact that congressional investigation into the leak is still going on. There was a temporary restraining order issued by the Court of Appeals last Friday against such oath-taking, and the PRC has since complied with the court order.

"The innocent must not be made to suffer the same fate as the guilty. What is important now is for the authorities to pinpoint the identities of those responsible for the leakage of the examination questions for nurses," he said.

The Senate, according to the senator from Mindanao, should insist on calling the PRC officials concerned to appear before the proper Senate committee.

"If they do not appear, they should be ordered detained for being in contempt of the Senate," he said.

Pimentel said the government and the Senate should not allow this incident to pass as if everything is all right.

"Cheating demeans the integrity of the nursing profession in general," he said. "The guilty must be punished even as the innocent must not be lumped together with them. The innocent must be allowed to enjoy the glory of their honest achievement."
