Senator Gordon Condemns the PRC's Haste

Senator Gordon Condemns the PRC's Haste

Press Release
August 18, 2006

Senator Richard Gordon yesterday denounced Philippine Regulations Chairman Leonor Tripon Rosero for directing PRC regional directors to permit the oath-taking of the nurses who allegedly passed the very controversial licensure examinations held last June.

"Chairman Rosero should resign," Gordon said. "PRC Chairman Rosero's memo directing that the various regional oath-takings be held starting August 17 is highly irresponsible, considering that the Senate Investigation as well as the NBI investigation, which Rosero herself requested, are still on-going."

This directive also goes against the original announcement of PRC that the oath-taking would be on August 22, 2006. "Why are they acting with such indecent, inexplicable and unjustifiable haste? This could only mean a cover-up."

In a letter dated July 13, 2006, Chairman Rosero herself requested Director Nestor Mantaring of the National Bureau of Investigation to help assist the PRC with the investigation of the leakage of examination questions in Tests III and V of the Nursing Licensure Examinations.

The letter says in part, "Our own investigation has established that there was such a leakage and that it was traced to the test questions manuscripts of two members of the Board of Nursing. Administrative charges for neglect of duty will be filed against these two Board members. Unfortunately, limited as we are in resources and expertise, we are unable to pursue our investigation to find out the exact extent of the irregularity and the identities of the culprits."

Senator Gordon added, "Senate investigations are on-going, and it has managed to ferret out new and valuable information on the culprits as well as the extent of the leakage. Why can't the PRC wait until both the Senate inquiry and the NBI investigation into the matter are concluded and the exact extent of this debacle is uncovered?"

The PRC is mandated under Sec. 5 of RA 8981, otherwise known as the PRC Modernization Act of 2000, to "establish and maintain a high standard of admission to the practice of all professions, and at all times ensure and safeguard the integrity of all licensure examinations."

"Under the circumstances, it is clear that the PRC is not ensuring and safeguarding the integrity of the licensure examination and that it has miserably failed to comply with its mandate.

"If in the process of both the senate and NBI investigations, the leakage is determined not to be limited to Tests III and V, that a larger number of students got hold of such leakage, what will happen now? Apparently, the PRC has lost its sense of values and has bolstered the culture where one is unanswerable to wrongdoing, never mind if the entire nursing profession is placed under a cloud of doubt. In that case, they should just resign," Gordon concluded.

hoy mamang gordon TUMAHIMIK KA!

Pumapapel lang naman yang si Gordon dahil nagpapalapad ng papel sa mga tao. Kayo mismo ang nagpapasama ng imahe ng mga filipino nurses both here and abroad at lalo kaming nilulubog sa hirap at kahihiyan....kami na biktima lang naman ng kasuwapangan ninyo at ng mga nasa PNA. Mabuti pa nga kayo e..kumita na..Samantalang kami na kapapasa pa lang e di hindi pa namin natitikman ang pinaghirapan namin at ng aming mga magulang. Kayo puro laway lang naman ang puhunan ninyo...Dapat tumigil na lang kayo sa pagsasalita...wala naman kwenta ang pinagsasabi ninyo..lalo pa sumasama ang sitwasyon.

Si Gordon well-travelled kaya alam nya akung paano magisip iba nationalities especially when it comes to integrity ng profession. Ang nakikita kong selfish dito yung nagpupush ng oath-taking at no re=take. Assuming pumasa ka ng walang leakage, paano naman yung bumagsak dahil nadisqulify yung favorite subject nya kung saan sya mas mahusay. Dapat think of the retake as a redeeming action hindi punishment.New Jersey baka daw hindi rin take new nurses from the Phil. Ang issue talaga hindi yung kung kayang ipasa uli o hindi, I am quite positive kung naipasa nyo nung una kaya uli., Ang issue dito time lost, potential income loss and siyempre frustrations. Bakit kaya hindi pikapin ni Cordero at nung mga nagleak ang retake fees, pamasahe, boarding fees, etc,etc, isama na nga income loss.come up with a hypotethical figure tutal nakanan magbayd ng 7million. A suggestion that is probably far-fetched from becoming a reality. Malay nyo din.

Ay naku very true, very true @3rd commenter.

Here we go again. Our comments focuses only to our OWN interest. I think Senator Gordon did not intend to do something showy here nor political maneuvers. He is always been for the TRUTH. Nice job Mr. Senator

kahit naman po pumasa un mga "failed" sa favorite subject nila na test 3 en 5.. pero di pa din nila naipasa un test 1,2,4..failed pa din sila..
di po ko nangaaway..just presenting facts..
kce po yung mga pumasa..kahit na 115 points ang minus sa total... pumasa pa means pinasa nila ang test 1 2 3 4..
para makuha un score s test 5 since nde sinama un..
test 2
test3-15 points(leak)
kunin mo average nyan
yan ang test 5 ave mo..

voluntary retake ang mas ok kce un sinasabi stigma,pde un maalis kung matatake ka..ok mga may gusto.pero yung ayaw magtake..irespect natin un right nila.kung magsuffer man sila sa "stigma" na un.. sila na ang bahala dun db? kaya wla tau right to enforce the retake kung ayaw nila.kc kung meron man mgsusuffer, sila un.. so labas tau dun.. wlang pakialamanan....
