Nursing scandal puts to waste six-year Nclex bid

Mila Velasquez, 2004-2006 PNAA president

LOS ANGELES—A top official of an organization of Philippine nurses in the United States blamed counterparts in the homeland who figured in the recent test imbroglio for having squandered away not only the hard earned integrity of the profession but that in the process, they likewise caused immense burden to colleagues who want to advance their lives and career.
Mila C. Velasquez, former president of the Philippine Nurses Association of America Inc. said that the reported loss of the Philippine bid to become an accredited venue for the Nclex (US National Commission on Licensure Examination) put to waste years of efforts to achieve the distinction.

BALITA contacted Velasquez, who is also adviser of the Philippine Nurses Association of Southern California, for comment regarding a report from Manila quoting Dante Ang, chairman of the Commission on Filipino Overseas (CFO), that the Philippine pursuit as an international testing center has been deferred.

She said that her association and others "had been coordinating with CFO for about six years on the project resulting on a conference last March at the Shangri-La Hotel in Makati with three officials of the US Council of State Board to iron out remaining kinks."

The Philippine panel had the distinct impression that the Philippine bid to be an international test center would have been approved anytime soon, she said, adding that it would have been a big help to our nurses seeking acceptance in the United States.

Although there are Nclex international testing centers in neighboring Asian countries such as Hongkong, Guam and Saipan, the expenditure in time, money, and other travel expenses saddle Filipino examinees with great difficulties. More than 80 percent of examinees in those centers are Filipinos, it was learned.

The silver lining in the problem, Velasquez said, is that US officials concerned may still reconsider their position if they are convinced that the Philippine government is earnestly investigating the cheating episode and penalize those responsible. She is optimistic that Philippine officials would do just that, she said.

This developed even as reports came in that this year’s examinees of the controversial nursing exam have a hard time finding jobs in hospitals even in our own country. The state of Arkansas will also not accept them. Meanwhile, Philippine officials overseeing the investigation are stumped on whether or not the exam results should be voided. (DIONESIO C. GRAVA)

OK LANG NAMAN IF WALA PA SA PHILIPPINES NCLEX, AT LEAST MAKAPASYAL SA IBANG BANSA, PERO SANA MATULOY PA RIN DITO PARA NAMAN SA MGA PASSERS GAYA KO NA DITO NA LANG MAG NCLEX AND FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T AFFORD HINDI SIYA BURDEN..GOD BLESS ALL THE PASSERS OF JUNE06 NLE...MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!!!

that's the irony, 80% of NCLEX examinees are filipinos and most of these 80% if not all, are also employed in the different parts of US, right? in effect, ilang percentage lang kaya ang hongkong nationals who are taking NCLEX? at bakit mas pinili ng US nursing boards na sa hongkong ang testing center than the philippines?

6 yrs in the making na pala ang pagkumbinsi sa mga kano na magkaroon ng testing center ang NCLEX d2? ano kaya ang pumipigil sa kanila? don't tell us na dahil sa leakage lang ang reason because ngayong year lang na ito nangyari ang leakage issue! alam din ng mga kano yan na 80% filipinos are taking the NCLEX for the past years, db?

kung iisipin natin, bakit kailangan pa natin silang kumbinsihin, samantalang alam naman nila yan na 80% of their examinees are filipinos?

there must be a reason behind, maybe more serious than this sole leakage issue, na ginagamit lang ng mga opisyal, who are in-charge, dahil hindi nila masabi yong buong katotohanan kung bakit ayaw ng US nursing boards na testing center ang pinas.
