Commentary: Cebu should be exempt from nursing board retake

Cebu City (29 September) -- Cebu should be excluded from President Arroyo's order for a retake of the June 2006 nursing board examination as it did not benefit from the leakage which was solely limited to Baguio and Manila.

Cebu City Councilor Atty. Edgardo Labella said Cebu was not one of the areas alluded to where cheating took place and hoped that the President would reconsider her decision.

The controversial board exams produced five topnotchers in Cebu who together with other nursing board passers in the region protested the retake as unfair as the examinees from Cebu and the Visayas took the test honestly through proper review and study.

To voice out their sentiments against the retake, a rally was held this morning at Fuente OsmeƱa spearheaded by the newly formed 'Tapok-tapok sa Nagkahiusang Nurses Batok sa Retake' (Tanan) composed of 1,723 board passers from Central Visayas.

Labella, Tanan legal counsel, said the group plans to submit a manifesto to the President on Cebu's exemption of a retake.

The retake of the exam would mean another round of reviews for students whose parents would have to spend again for the laborious exercise, according to Labella.
