PRC wants test writers to prepare nursing board exams

PRC wants test writers to prepare nursing board exams

The chairwoman of the Professional Regulation Commission is proposing a revision of rules covering the Nursing Licensure Examinations (NLE) including the hiring of test writers to prepare the exams, ABS-CBN’s Bandila reported Tuesday.

PRC Chairwoman Leonor Tripon-Rosero is recommending that Board of Nursing members should not work on drafting test questions for the nursing board exams. She said that the BON should hire test writers to draft the questions.

Rosero is also proposing a raise in the standard pay of BON members to match the salaries of nursing college deans. BON members receive about P21,000 a month while the board chairman gets P23,000.

Rosero is also recommending that BON members be allowed to teach in nursing colleges.

The PRC chairwoman is scheduled to present the recommendations before the Senate budget committee hearing on Wednesday.

Other recommendations from PRC include: closure of nursing board review centers, the addition of review classes in the nursing curriculum and the barring of owners of nursing schools and review centers from nominating candidates to the BON.

The PRC is also calling for the creation of a test research, development and statistics office to maintain the quality of the NLE following the reported leakage in the last board exams.

The National Bureau of Investigation said it will summon 22 deans of nursing schools who reportedly benefited from the leakage. The NBI is also investigating the bank accounts of PRC and BON officials.

The NBI earlier recommended the filing of criminal charges against BON members Anesia Dionisio and Virginia Madeja for allegedly receiving a P7-million bribe for the leakage.
