An Appeal To Parents of June 2006 NLE Passers

An Appeal To Parents of June 2006 NLE Passers
Sent via Email

Dear Parents,

It pains me to hear comments and statements coming from people who has no stake at all in this just concluded June 2006 Nursing Licensure Exams. We have been monitoring my child's progress in her studies for the past four (4) years. We have gotten just about any book or materials that is related to her studies of Nursing. We also immersed ourselves in school related activities to help her out be a well rounded student in her pursuit of a Nursing Degree. In this times most of you will agree that it is not an easy task to have your children pursuit a Nursing Degree.

Aside from the tuition fees and other related expenses, I would probably venture on saying that the Nursing course is the most expensive course next to the Law and Medical professions. With this consideration I cannot comprehend the stand of the schools to even consider a retake of the examination. They have trained and taught their students a curriculum that is at par or better than schools in North America. I know this for a fact because I saw the courses taken by the children of my relatives and friends during my visits there. During this time together with the course they were taught to be good Christians, practice good moral values and be model citizens of the Philippines.

Let me throw this questions for the proponents of retake examinations:
  1. Does the stand of schools to have a retake means, that their passers were not properly trained and studied in their schools?
  2. If they were properly tutored in school would they still need to enroll in review centers?
  3. Do you know the cost of doing a retake? (Emotional, Psychological, Moral and Financial)
  4. Did we solve the crime by not getting who is actually responsible and by bringing them to the Courts of Justice?
  5. Is it right for us to penalize everyone who passed, including the one's who did not benefit from the leakage?
Much has been said about this issue by people who are not examinees and are not nursing practitioners at all. Many doctors took this exam and some did not make it. That goes to show you that these exams are not easy. This issue brings out the old custom of Crab Mentality among Filipinos again. We intend to do more harm to our fellowmen rather than help them.

After graduation, attending two (2) review classes and passing the June 2006 Nursing Licensure Examination, my daughter and I are on the second phase of our preparations for practicing the Nursing Profession. With the employer that I was talking to the PNLE was not even a prerequisite in landing her a job in North America? I have been preparing my daughter for this event since the moment she entered college. I only encouraged her to take the exams so she could practice and be recognized as a Registered Nurse in her country as well as in the country she intends to work.

Obviously this is a fight between schools and the review centers. Also a fight between people who wants to earn more out of the difficulty.

I am appealing to all parents to be vigilant in fighting for our children's rights. The grief of the parent's examinee cannot be surpassed even by the examinee themselves.

Sincerely Yours,

Engr. Virgilio D. Arellano
Father of June 2006 NLE Passer

Mga kasama, nakuha ko ito sa ABS-CBN Forum. Maramin ang pro-retake doon. Di gaya dito, iilang tao lang nagpopost na anti-retake at parang maramin sila.


This is good for humor DH but seriously, the cabinet used a simple Cost Benefit Analysis and had a look at statistics to justify the retake. This is how it probably went:

What is at stake here? The reputation and integrity of around 137,000 Filipino health care workers deployed worldwide, mostly in the middle east, north America, Europe (specially UK), Netherlands, high income asia, and future japan. These nurses remit an average of $ 2.2 Billion US Dollars per annum.

How much will is cost to fund the retake of 17,821 nurses? Inclusive of logistics, lunch and some pocket money to take home? Less than $ 2 Million US Dollars. That’s quite cheap isn’t it?

What can we further gain with a retake? The continued outflow of approximately 13,000 nurses per annum, in addition to the 137,000 who will get to keep their jobs after a retake. The Philippines will continue to enjoy an inflow of over 2$ Billion US Dollars, which is also increasing by approximately $200,000 Million US dollars per annum, at an accelerating rate. Most priceless of all is the peace of mind that Filipinos will continue to be the most trusted race to fill in the ever increasing demand of registered nurses in the future.

Considering these figures, seems like a retake is not such a bad deal for the Philippines after all?
I therefore propose that we change the title of this forum to "LET'S DO A RETAKE!!! - JUSTICE FOR ALL"""
