Brion hopes retake issue over soon

Brion hopes retake issue over soon

With the nursing exam case still in the Court of Appeals, Labor Secretary Arturo Brion said Wednesday that all he wished for is the speedy resolution of the controversy.

"I hope that there will be a closure for the sake of the examinees, for the sake of the system and for the sake of our national integrity. That’s all I want," Brion told editors and reporters of The Manila Times at a roundtable.

He stressed, though, that everything now hangs in the air until the petitions filed before by the appellate court by groups questioning the court’s order are resolved with finality.

Till then, Brion said, the damage to the integrity of the nursing licensure examination would remain and doubts about the efficiency and capability of the examinees concerned would prevent them from moving on.

He has written the court to express his fear and his hope that the controversy will be settled soon.

News of the leakage has spread in the United States and England, where Filipino nurses are highly regarded for their efficiency, Brion said.

The US is now thinking twice before it pursues its plan of setting up an examination center in the Philippines for nurses aspiring to work in America, he said.

Even the president of the Philippine nurses’ association in the United Kingdom is disturbed by the controversy, Brion said.

"For all you know, [the UK government] might impose additional requirements on new entrants," he said.

He noted that many countries are competing with the Philippines in supplying nurses to Western countries, and if the test-leakage controversy is not dealt with accordingly, Filipino nurses might lose out.

The Court of Appeals has ordered that 1,687 of the June 2006 nursing board examinees who benefited from the recomputation of the grades must take Tests 3 and 5 again.

The court also ordered the Professional Regulation Commission to include in the retake the 1,186 examinees who were removed from the list of board passers after the grades were recomputed.

The court said board passers on the original PRC list can take their oaths and get their nursing licenses.

"The Department of Labor and Employment will wait for the Court of Appeals to decide on the validity of the retake issue, and it will implement the court’s recommendation," Brion said.

The labor department took control of the PRC on September 11 through a presidential directive, Executive Order 565.

The National Bureau of Investigation has recommended charges against two nursing board examiners and 17 officials of three review centers who were involved in the leakage. With Katrice R. Jalbuena, The Manila Times

Received via email:

I am writing to make an offer to anyone of the what I consider fine young woman and men who stood up to the plate and exposed the cheating in the 2006 Nursing Licensure Exam held in June 2006.

I will donate P900 to 10 each for their expenses in lieu of the P900 fee for taking the Exam. This was my initial offer (to pay the test fee), made several times to various Newspapers and individuals as my way of showing my deep respect and admiration for what they did. Unfortunately, no one bothered to accept. To me the retake was a no brainer and should include the whole test. This to completely protect the reputation of the batch and the profession.

I am fully aware that this is not very much for expenses vs the Government saying they will pay for the test costs, but as with all of us, I have limits on what I can do for someone, no matter how honorable their effort.

Initially, I suggested the amount based on anyone of several criteria:

1. First 10 to avail themselves;
2. Most needy;
3. Some sort of lottery;
4. Another method to be advised

The only condition I impose is that these monies go to members of the 92 who stood up to the plate and showed that there are Filipinos with honor and integrity.

Sincerely

duh!
depends on what is the motive behind it all...

for all we know, they just got scared to fail the NLE that's why they filed complaint... lucky day for them when they bumped the 'opportunist attorney' in the person of Ms. Yangot to represent them...

its common knowledge since the start of nursing controversy (& for a long time already...) that had these 92 whistle blowers known that they would pass the NLE they wouldn't have complained at all! so is that what u call heroism, e!

these bunch of kids, the 'baguio whistle blowers' wanted to save their 'butts', don't be naive... coz they are not! :P

the students they were accusing of having leakage during NLE were known to have shared those leakages to their friends during the NLE... di po nila ipinagdamot ang biyayang binayadan nila from the scum review center - i.e. gapuz! its truth! & its hurts! :P

in the spirit of fairness, give credit to where it is due. the baguio group did a significant role - that is to expose an act (Cheating) that should be denounced in the stringest words possible by any genuine nurse if we go by the ideals representing nursing.please go back to how this controversy started. the baguio people never thought that the discovered cheating was on a wider scale than baguio. thats why don't you think that if PRC acted swiftly on the matter the first time their attention was called by the baguio people, much of our woes would have prevented. I am sure ayaw natin ang cheating kaya nga ganyan ang galit natin sa ating magigiting na politicos pag graft and corruption and usapin. sana lang, kahit na tayo ay nag kakaiba ng opinyon tungkol sa mga pangyayari sa kasalukuyan, di natin dapat iwalangbahala ang katotohanang ang mata ng tao ay nakatuon sa pag uugali nating na nasa propisyon sa pamamagitan ng ating pagtatalakay sa mga bagay-bagay. ito ay isang paalala lang.DINI

in nursing justice means 'who is the priority and who will benefit the most'...


the baguio 'whistle blowers' intent of exposing the 'cheating' was a brave act indeed... but, the media exposure & manipulation created by it had impacted the innocent lives of a lot of people, esp the lives of passers & flunker alike of the 2006 NLE...

we ABHOR HOW THE WAY MEDIA HAS SENSATIONALIZED THE ISSUE OUT OF PROPORTION, by the sheer objective of PROFIT...

the 2006 board passers has become stigmatized due to their irresponsible & biased reporting!!!

the nursing controversy was over ridden w/ lies due to the making of the media!

THE NLE HAS LEAKAGE IN TEST 5 & PART OF TEST 3...

THE PRC NULLIFIED TEST 5 & PART OF TEST 3 W/ LEAKAGE...


THE NLE WAS LEAKAGE FREE WHEN RESULT WAS ISSUED LAST JULY 19, 2006...

WE STAND BY THAT FACT!!!

DOES THE MEDIA EVER CONSIDERED REPORTING & HIGH LIGHTING THIS FACT IN THEIR REPORTING????

ALL THEY CARED ABOUT WAS ALL 2006 TEST TAKERS BENEFITTED FROM LEAKAGES!!! WHICH WAS A HUGEEE LIEEE!!!
