RP can still apply as NCLEX site

RP can still apply as NCLEX site

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing said the Philippines can still apply as an international testing site for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) after rejecting the country's bid this year, ABS-CBN North America News Bureau reported Thursday.

"At this time, the Philippines was not chosen, but that's not to say that we won't consider the country in the future," said Dawn M. Kappel, NCSBN Director of Marketing and Communications.

Kappel belied reports that the country was not favored as a testing site because of the alleged leakage in the 2006 nursing board exams.

"There's a lot of speculation going on and that's all it is – speculation," Kappel added.

Dante Ang, chairman of the Commission on Filipinos Overseas, earlier confirmed that the NCSBN had postponed its review on the country's application for accreditation as a foreign testing center for NCLEX.

He told DZMM that the country "had already reached third base" to hold the NCLEX exam here before reports of the local nursing board exam leakage broke out. He added that NCSBN officials are closely monitoring the developments of the investigation on the test leakage.

"We need to be very open about this investigation. We need to uphold our dignity, uphold our honor and prosecute the guilty parties," he said.

An ABS-CBN North America News Bureau report said the leakage is already causing worry among Filipino nurses working in the US.

"There are chances that our credibility would be challenged because of that," a Filipino nurse in the San Francisco Bay Area said.

Placement agencies, however, are optimistic that Filipino nurses would still be in demand in the US.

"Our nurses are very lucky because of the huge shortage of nurses here in the US. I personally don't think that [the leakage] will have a big effect," Victor Pantig of Pelican Resources, Inc. said.

The National Bureau of Investigation on Thursday said it is still finalizing its report on the leakage of the 2006 nursing board exams.

NBI Director Nestor Mantaring earlier confirmed that there was a leakage.

A Bandila report said the NBI will file charges against two Board of Nursing members, Anesia Dionisio and Virginia Madeja, for violating Republic Act 8981, otherwise known as the Professional Regulation Act.

A Professional Regulation Commission report earlier identified the two as the possible beneficiaries of a P7-million bribe paid by George Cordero, ex-president of the Philippine Nurses Association. Bandila said Cordero nominated Madeja to the Board of Nursing while he was still chairman of the PNA nomination committee.

The PRC said Cordero presented the leakage during the final coaching session of the INRESS Review Center two days before the board exams. Cordero has denied receiving any leakage.


US is being politically correct. Of course they would just say, it is not affected. Hello? They are waiting for what the Philippines will do. Until then,the country will not be considered for NCLEX.
