Villar seeks curbs on nursing centers

Villar seeks curbs on nursing centers

Senate President Manuel Villar has filed a bill seeking to impose stricter regulations on review centers amid charges that a review center was responsible for the leakage that marred the recent Nursing Board Licensure Examination.

Likewise, Villar said his Senate Bill 2371 would address the commercialization of education by review centers. “Some review centers have made education a lucrative business associated with anomalous deals or transactions.”

Any group of people can just put up a review center, Villar said. “The competence and integrity of the reviewers do not pass the scrutiny of any government office. Thus, it is not surprising that we have substandard review centers.”

Villar’s bill seeks to grant the Professional Regulation Commission the power to license, regulate and supervise all review centers or similar entities offering review classes in preparation for examinations administered by the commission.

During the hearings on the nursing board exam leakage, Senator Richard Gordon noted that review centers are under the jurisdiction of the Department of Trade and Industry.

“The bill seeks to grant additional powers to the PRC. It could minimize, if not stop, alleged irregularities being perpetrated by some review centers and will limit the number of review centers which shall meet the requirements prescribed by PRC,” Villar said. Roy Pelovello
