It’s not about nursing, but about justice

It’s not about nursing, but about justice

THE letter writer Russel de Vera (“Retake the exam if you know your nursing” -- Viewpoints, Oct. 10, 2006) doesn't get it. The big picture is not about our nurses not knowing their nursing. It's about justice.

I have worked with and have known many nurses in the US who have been in the nursing profession anywhere from four to 40 years, all graduates of Philippine nursing schools.

There has been a grave injustice committed here to the nurses who passed the June 2006 board examinations. They are crying out to people like De Vera, a colleague, to all of us “kababayan” [fellow countrymen], and to the government for justice.

That is justice for the innocent. Punish the persons responsible for the test question leakage who have undermined the integrity of the profession, whose interest are only for themselves. Do not punish the innocent who exhausted all their effort and finances to pursue a dream, which De Vera probably had a decade ago. De Vera basically called them cowards for not being willing to retake the board exam.

Do not be quick to judge our nurses, because wherever your journey in America goes you are one of them -- Philippine-educated or, as they would often refer to us in the medical field in the US, foreign-trained.
