Almost 200 antiretake examinees rally at PRC

Almost 200 antiretake examinees rally at PRC


Almost 200 nursing students held a rally in front of the Philippine Regulatory Commission on Monday morning to insist that there should be no retake of the leakage-tainted June 2006 board exams for nurses.

“In August President Arroyo was saying that she was not in favor of a retake. Now she is ordering a retake and even preempting the Court of Appeals decision,” said Renato Aquino, a spokesman for the assembled students.

Aquino and most of the students at the rally took the nursing board licensure exam in June and passed.

Some 42,000 took the exam. About 17,000 passed. A group of students—passers as well as flunkers—have petitioned the Court of Appeals to nullify the tests, order a retake and void as well the oath-taking of some passers.

“We have been in limbo, we cannot move forward,” Aquino said. “We are all for persecuting those who did wrong, but those who did nothing wrong and passed fair and square are suffering as well.”

The President was reported to have ordered a retake last Thursday following concerns that the integrity of the nursing profession and the quality of Filipino nurses are in jeopardy.

A petition was filed with the Court of Appeals by faculty members of the University of Santo Tomas college of nursing, the League of Concerned Nurses and the Binuklod na Samahan ng mga Student Nurses.

The petitioners are asking the court to nullify the hasty and mathematically erroneous recomputation of test results in which the scores for Tests 3 and 5, which were the subject of the leakage, were manipulated in such a way that the examinees’ scores for the two tests were derived from the averages of their scores in the other tests.

Owing to the leakage, local and foreign hospitals have warned that they would prefer not to hire licensed nurses belonging to the June 2006 batch. Officials of the USA’s CGFNS, which issues the ViceScreen certificate to foreign nurses who want to work in the United States, also said they would treat passers of the June 2006 more rigorously than usual.

They said in the United States whenever there is a scandal about a board exam, the only solution is to have all the examinees retake it. That solution, they said, may not be convenient especially to the innocent, but it is the only way to clear the names of the exam-passers and erase any stigma attached to that batch of examinees.

Proponents of the retake say the reputation of the Filipinos as quality nurses is threatened by the scandal and agree with the US position that a retake is the only way to make truth and principle win over cheating and expediency.

Aquino said he and many of his fellow June 2006 board examination passers have job prospects lined up. It was not clear if he already had a CGFNS VisaScreen certificate.
