Anti-retake board passers may change minds on retake

Anti-retake board passers may change minds on retake

By Veronica Uy

(UPDATE) FACED with the possibility of a drawn out judicial process to resolve the controversy over leaked questions in the June 2006 nursing licensure examinations, board passers who had rejected a retake of the test are considering changing their position.

Grace Urquiaga vice president of the Alliance of New Nurses, which represents many of the 17,000 examinees who passed the licensure test, said her group was consulting with as many board passers as possible.

“Some people want to have a retake rather than go through a long court battle. They want to hang up the gloves. We're conducting an informal survey [on] the Internet to get as many insights as possible,” she said.

But Renato Aquino Jr., president of the alliance, reiterated that the position of the group was no retake.

He said there would be consultations among the board passers if and when the Court of Appeals would decide on a retake.

At the Senate hearing on the nursing board leak, Professional Regulation Commission chair Leonor Tripon-Rosero, the Commission on Filipinos Overseas, and the other parties involved in addressing the issue reiterated their positions.

Rosero said once a Court of Appeals temporary restraining order against the oath-taking for board passers lapses, her office would continue to administer the oaths and issue licenses to the new nurses.

But Commission on Filipinos Overseas head Dante Ang, who also heads a task force looking into the nursing board, insisted that there should be a retake.


ipaglaban ang ating karapatan! kung ikaw ay nakapasa,di kn dapat pang umulit ng exam. madaling magsalita ng magsalita lalo n hindi ikaw ang magre-retake!
