Senate to tackle nursing board scandal Wednesday

TO RETAKE or not to retake. That’s the question Senate has to take up at Wednesday’s hearing on the alleged leak in the 2006 nursing licensure examination, a senator said.

Senator Rodolfo Biazon, head of the Senate committee on civil service and government reorganization, said the hearing, which will “assess who caused the leak,” is open to the public.

“Those who took the exam are welcome to attend the Senate hearing so that they can witness and participate in the resolution of this problem,” he said.

A total of 42,006 nursing graduates took the board examinations on June 11 and 12. Forty-two percent or 17,871 of the examinees passed.

Accusations of test leakages surfaced after an examinee complained that other board takers had admitted to obtaining copy of the answers three days before the licensure examinations.

The deans of nursing colleges and Senator Richard Gordon have said all examinees must retake the exam to dispel the alleged cheating that tainted the test.

The scandal is feared to adversely affect the public health sector and the deployment of Filipino nurses abroad.
