Nurses insist: No to exam retake

Nurses insist: No to exam retake
By Mary Grace Plata

THE Philippine Nurses Association (PNA) stood pat in its decision to support June 2006 nursing board passers who opposed to retake the licensure exams.

"To retake the exams would be like an admission of guilt for them (board passers) and the nursing profession would lose its credibility," Dr. Bobby Palec, PNA governor for Southern Mindanao, said in Wednesday's edition of Ugnayan sa Royal Mandaya.

Palec said President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has allocated P52 million from her social fund to help examinees should the Court of Appeals (CA) rule for a retake.

But Palec was quick to add that lawsuits are expected to be filed should CA decides a retake of the board examination.

"We won't allow them to fool around with us," said board passer Christine Papasin, who ranked 8th in the June 2006 Nursing Licensure Exams.

Papasin said being "punished for something we have not taken part of" is unfair.

She expressed gratitude to PNA for supporting them.

Palec said a Commission on Higher Education (Ched) guideline to only allow review centers within accredited nursing schools, needs to be fully implemented to prevent similar incident to happen in the future.
