This nursing school beats UE-RMMC, UP and UST in number of MAs and PhDs

This nursing school beats UE-RMMC,
UP and UST in number of MAs and PhDs

http://www.manilatimes.net/national/2006/sept/24/yehey/top_stories/20060924top6.html

A Manila-based college that grants master’s and doctorate degrees in nursing has beaten the University of the Philippines, the University of Santo Tomas and the UE-RMMC in the number of postgraduate degrees it gives a year.

As of September 2006 and since last year, the UP College of Nursing awarded only two master’s degrees, UST only one and the UE-RMMC ten.

A government source told The Times that the Philippine College of Health Sciences, Inc., as of September 2006, and since last year, has awarded 135 Master of Arts and 4 PhDs in Nursing to its students.

In past years, the source said, PCHSI also awarded an unusually large number of postgraduate degrees to its students outside Manila through extension classes.

According to the government source, the government, through the Commission on Higher Education, finds nothing amiss with the number of MAs and PhDs that the PCHSI graduates. The commission does not impose any limit on the number of graduates any higher-education college can have in any given academic year.

The source also said that the government cannot interfere with the curriculum of each college or university and therefore cannot check the quality of teachers and students of each school since the law states that academic institutions can exercise their own academic freedom.

The only way you can check the quality of the school is through the quality of its graduates, but you can do so only by gauging their performance in the workplace, which is already outside of any government institution’s jurisdiction.

The source also said that the high number of PCHSI graduates may also be a reflection of more lax admissions criteria/requirement or the prohibitive tuition of other schools. Other schools have higher undergraduate grade requirements before a student can be admitted to any graduate course and others even have written exams.

Some schools may not require such stringent admission requirements, and as long as the students have the money and time to devote to graduate studies they flock to schools like PCHSI.

Postgraduate degree candidates normally have to submit dissertations. The quality of the dissertations is a way of telling how good a college is. Some of the PCHSI Nursing M.A. theses The Times research staff read had grammatical errors, but that is not too rare in the Philippines where English has declined.

Some PCHSI theses had a lot of typographical errors. In one, some statements were stated and repeated, perhaps to make the paragraphs look longer.

The owner of PCHSI is the controversial president of the Philippine Nursing Association, Dr. George Cordero. He also owns the Inress Review Center.

He was also a member of the government’s Commission on High Education’s technical committee for nursing.

Cordero has been linked to the June 2006 nursing board exam leakage.

A PCHSI student, Pamela Ortega, confessed to Dr. Letty Kuan, a member of the Board of Nursing, that she had overheard Cordero saying during the final coaching at SM Cinema in Manila that he “did not pay P7 million for nothing” in relation to the leakage.

But Cordero in turn accused Ortega, his student, of providing the R.A. Gapuz Review Center with copies of handwritten board exam questions.

The leakage scandal has sharpened calls for more strict regulation of nursing schools and review centers. Sen. Richard Gordon has called for the closure of all review centers and wants review classes to be administered by the nursing colleges themselves.

mabuti ang ganitong mga information na nababasa nmn at least we can have a better choice to make.i hope mabuti lng sana ng budhi ng sumulat nito, at sana this is for the better good ng marami.kc, pwede ko ring isipin na naiingit lng sya sa kapalaran ng iba, o di kya may nagbayad sa kanya para siraan ang iba at matanyag ung galing ng nagbayad sa kanya at sila lng ang puntahan ng mas marami.kc all is fair nmn, justice should always prevail dapat sa lahat. maparusahan sana ung talagang mali. kc, bk ung akala nting mali ang tama tapos ang mali pala e tayo, ano kaya ang dapat gawin sa iyo kung ganun, at papayag kb maparusahan? sabi nga sa kasabihan ng tao, bago k pumuna ng iba sarili mo muna ang linisin mo. ang tanong ikaw ba ay malinis para sumulat ng ganito sa iba? i hope sana nga!salamat sa information na ibinigay mo at least nakilala n kita.

it's so obvius that this person was paid to publish this article... he didn't research the background of those postgrad students who took their masteral in pchs... most of them were nurse supervisors of gov't hospitals or chief nurse acquiring phd's noh... in fairness... pchs has a rosters of qualified professors in their pool... naku, lahat na idinamay ninyo... puro haka-haka lang naman ang alam ninyo! kainis huh!

e bakit si dennis bautista ng pchs di isinali nitong mokong na writer na toh... malamang taga-UST faculty of nursing ito mokong na writer na toh... ako na lang magpi-feed ng info sayo...
si dennis bautista na nag-review sa GAPUZ, pentagon at inress, ngunit di pa din pumasa ng local boards. nagreview sya sa 3 review centers pagkat nabalitaan nya na may 'leakage' na ibinibigay ng mga review centers na ito kung malapit na ang NLE..inaasahan nya pumasa ng NLE sa pamagitan ng 'leakage', sya ay nagkamali... labis nyang sinisi si cordero sa kanyang pagbagsak sa NLE... sa sobrang galit niya kay cordero, pumayag sya sa alok ng grupo ni brant na magpa-interview kay korina sanchez...
ang grade nya sa NLE ay 68.20%. gaya nila brant (ng UST, na 70% lang daw ang nakuha sa NLE) HINDI NYA NAIPASA ANG NLE!...ne-recruit ng mga taga UST headed by brant & tadle si dennis bautista upang maging "star witness" nila...sa pagka-alam ko from july to august,puspusan ang pag-pipilit ng grupo ni brant na mahikayat ang lahat ng bumagsak sa pchs upang tumestigo laban kay cordero...

si dennis bautista na puro pangongodigo at pangongopya sa klase ang inatupag ay sya pang ibinibida at gusto ipaidolo sa atin ng media... bakit ko alam na si Dennis Bautista ay mahina sa klase? Sya po ay ka-batch at classmate ko sa pchs...

2 klase lang ang estudyante sa pchs... 1st coursers at 2nd coursers... masipag mag-aral at hindi... at ako ay naniniwala na ito ay totoo din sa ibang mga eskwela... ang pagpasa sa NLE ay wala sa eskwelang pinanggalingan... ito ay nakasalalay sa sipag at talino ng estudyante... hindi sa ganda ng eskwelahan at lalong di sa may-ari ng eskwelahan...

si dennis bautista, naturingan 2nd courser, pero hindi nya kayang ipasa ang nursing subjects ng walang kodigo... ang kanyang intensyon ay malinaw na PANSARILI lamang... makapang damay ng iba at makaganti kay cordero... pati ang kanyang sarili ay sinira na nyang tuluyan upang makipaghiganti lamang kay cordero... dapat bang isisi ang pagbagsak mo sa NLE sa ibang tao? di ba dapat na ang gawin mo ay mag-aral ng mabuti (at mag-log in sa pinoybsn. hehe)upang maipasa mo iyong NLE (sa Dec. hehe!)
bakit kaya di itong katotohanan na ito ang ipina-publish ng manila times at abs-cbn??? bakit po kaya???

just wld like to add on what post 12.03pm said...

those government nurse sup / charge nurse from gov't hospital that were enrolled in pchs by cordero, most of them are / were scholars... in fairness to pchs, it has provided the students w/ complete facilities for learning... again it's up to the students (post grad,undergrad, 2nd coursers) to use everything for their benefit... cordero is not that evil as everyone would like to portray... and contrary to public belief, PCHS is not a 'rat hole' of incompetent graduates... we have 2nd coursers from UP, UST, & other prestigious colleges that are / were prepared to 'top the boards' if only this leakage controvery didn't happen at all...

manila times who published and researched this story is owned by a person against pchs and cordero and is in cohort with UP and UST people in pinning down cordero..as graduates of pchs, what we could do is to prove our worth, not allow this thing of the past to hinder us from becoming the best and competent nurses in the world...may kakayanan tayo at talino, dapat na maniwala tayo na sa tulong at awa ang Diyos, malalagpasan din natin ang pagsubok na ito

Manila Times who researched and published this article is in cohort with UP and UST in trying to pin down George Cordero. What else could be expected from them? What we, graduates of PCHS could do is to prove our worth to our detractors, may kakayanan naman tayo at talino, lets take this as a challenge to become competent nurses and to be the best in the world. May awa ang Diyos, malalagpasan din natin ang pagsubok na ito. God bless us all!

petsa na!! bitter pa rin ba ang PCHS sa UST..hehe la lang sana po magtulungan na lang tayong lahat at hindi nagsisisihan.. total matagal ng tapos yun at pasado na rin yung mga nabanggit na tao sa NLE. :) i hope pasado na rin sila ng NCLEX and CGFNS. :)

just to defend my school. Baguio po nagstart ng yung issue ng leakage at sinuportahan lang ng UST. saka ang kuripot kaya ng mga pari dun kaya malamang walang perang pambayad yung mga yun para makakuha lang ng witness. :)

ok mag move on ka na rin, God bless us all!

Ive read the article and for me its a crap because obviously its ONE SIDED, and its UNPROVEN! hope you got me... kaw na ang nagsabi about all the research and kung ano ano pang bagay prove it ok? cguro ung may gawa nyang article na yan ay ingit, or kahit nmn cguro cno pwede gumawa nyan like for example galing ka sa kabilang side ( i mean sa kalaban ni GEORGE CORDERO) right? LOOK walang kwenta ang article kung ito ay ONE SIDED and for your information lng po sana mga readers its not that im on the side of GEORGE CORDERO alone but LOOK walang NCLEX here sa pilipinas kung hindi dahil kay GEORGE CORDERO ok?? sana paki basa ung history ng NURSING ung buo na HISTORY at ung recent here sa PILIPINAS ok? ONE MORE THING you have mentioned about INRESS REVIEW CENTER FOR YOUR INFORMATION again readers it is THE 1ST REVIEW CENTER Here meaning paki tanung ung most of your "CI" (clinical instructors), and mga FACULTY na mga tinatawag na beterano and ung ibang dean nyo ask them kung saan sila nag review most of them have been there tanung nyo din ung mga chief nurse ng mga HOSPITAL nyo.. ask them also kung saan cla nag masteral ung mga chief nurse... inress and PCHS mostly and about sa review CENTER na INRESS na I TOLD nga kanina na 1st rev center actually 2nd cya kayalng binili ni CORDERO UNG nauna pang review center sa manila so nasa INRESS ang RIGHTS nun ask nyo ung mga nagsulputang review centers ngayun like PENTAGON, GAPUZ, SEA MED, and ung mga iba nman hindi kilala macyado ask nyo ung mga nabangit koh readers 100% mga nagstablished nyang mga yan is GALING DIN SA PCHS AT INRESS I MEAN NAG WORK sila SA PCHS AT INRESS, they all learned from GEORGE CORDERO then ayun ginamit lng nila natutunan nila from HIM ok??? so DONT BE JUDGE mental ok? and UPDATE LANG SA kaso ni CORDERO about 2006 leakage sorry but its already dismissed last NOVEMBER 2008 pa meaning wala na kasi hindi nila na prove... TO CLOSE MY COMMENT SA MGA NAGNANAIS PANG MAG NURSING DYAN just be sure na GUSTO NYO ung kinukuha nyong course ok??? not because of MONEY alone kasi kahit anung hirap ng course basta gusto mo to hindi mo mararamdaman ung hirap eh and about nmn sa pag pili ng SCHOOL GUYS FOR ME 20% lng ang FACTOR ng SCHOOL sa paghubog ng student ung 80% is nasa STUDYANTE! ok? piliin nyo ung school na pagdating sa area mag hahands on kayo at hindi lng manunuod ok? at masmaganda piliin nyo ung school na ang mga CI nyo hindi extra sa ospital meaning ung pipiliin nyo is ung mga CI nyo is taga duon sa HOSPITAL na pag dudutihan nyo ok?? masmaganda kung CHIEFNURSE pa ng hospital ung CI nyo rigth? i hope you get what im trying to say here lahat ng school may GOODSIDE may BADSIDE nasasainyu nlng yan ok?? gusto koh pa pahabain but i think till here nlng muna GOODLUCK!

"The commission does not impose any limit on the number of graduates any higher-education college can have in any given academic year." As quoted from the article. So what's their problem? They always have something to say about PCHS. Can't they find any other topic? Can't they talk of something more sensible? Like how the government could offer work to the vast number of Registered Nurses?
Why are they making this an issue? IT's none of their business!

Well I just think that they should first look at those who enroll at PCHS. Do you think that those people have not thought twice before investing their time, money and effort? Of course they did! And I am sure they would simply choose what is BEST FOR THEM and NOT FOR YOU TO BE PLEASED. Who are you anyway?

It doesn't really matter which school you are from. Because in the end it wouldn't count. What good would it bring if you are from UST, UP or UE-RMMC if you are not competent? Why will you be stopped to receive your MA or PhD if you deserve it?

"The source also said that the high number of PCHSI graduates may also be a reflection of more lax admissions criteria/requirement or the prohibitive tuition of other schools. Other schools have higher undergraduate grade requirements before a student can be admitted to any graduate course and others even have written exams." As quoted again from the article.

Granting this is true...what now? Will it affect how high or how low you'd get in the board? This does not measure anything. Thus I beg to disagree. For in the battle None of this would count. You won't get any credit from your school or review center. YOU ARE ALL ALONE.All you have is just the things you learned...not even the things you were taught but only the things you know, the things you can remember and comprehend. ""Not what they taught you but what you learned from what was taught.""

So, why is this writer pointing fingers? What's with your grudge against my school? Are you owed by Dr. Cordero and not payed? Or are you payed to write? Tell us and we will try to understand you. We are nurses and maybe we can talk in the most therapeutic way.

I would be more happy if you will be updating us on how we could practice our profession being payed and not through thank yous or let me call it volunteer. Stop being a hypocrite. There are a lot of problems this profession is facing right now, why don't you give focus to it?

MAKE SENSE! WRITE SOMETHING USEFUL!
