Nurses who benefited from leak face license revocation

Nurses who benefited from leak face license revocation
http://bond.lanesystems.com/sitegen/article.asp?wid=125&cid=457&aid=39236

MANILA (PNA) – Government will revoke professional licenses of successful June 2006 nursing board examinees whom the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) will identify as also having benefited from leakage of questions that marred this test.
Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita said this will enable them to join other examinees in re-taking the test which the Court of Appeals (CA) ordered last week to help restore credibility of the country’s nursing profession and professional licensure examination.

“Due process will be observed in dealing with this, however,” he assured Monday during a Palace briefing.

Following observance of due process, Republic Act 8981 or the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) Modernization Act of 2000 empowers various professional regulatory boards under this body to either suspend, revoke, reissue or reinstate certificate of registration or licenses for causes provided by law.

If NBI is able to link some nursing license holders to the scam, Ermita said their names will be added to the agency’s list of about 1,687 examinees who must re-take the examination in December this year.

“This will be done even if their names weren’t covered under the CA decision,” he noted.

He said NBI is finishing its list of re-takers so this can be made public within the 15-day grace period CA allows for stakeholders concerned to appeal its decision on the matter.

“Without such appeal, CA’s decision becomes final and executory after this period,” he said.

The Palace is awaiting recommendations on detailed action for the re-take which Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Secretary Arturo Brion will forward to President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo as soon as possible.

Brion is batting for a multi-sector reconciliatory approach aimed at achieving at the earliest time possible a win-win solution for parties concerned.

“This will avoid the trouble of having to bring this matter before the Supreme Court,” Ermita said.

Following discovery of the leakage, CA issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) which affected oath taking of supposedly successful examinees as some parties began questioning proposals for a re-take of the examination.

PRC reported about 17,000 out of 42,000 examinees passed the controversial examination although not all of them were able to take their oath since CA already issued the TRO.

kung nakasama ka sa new list of RETAKERS, ibig sabihin, bagsak ka talaga before nila binago ang original scores natin. Wala na pong lusot yan kasi scores mo talaga yan. The positive side lang nun, me chance ka pa to redeem your scores for free by retaking unlike those who failed before & after the recomputation, di na sila pwede mag retake for free.

It does not mean na meron ka leakage, it only means na hindi ka talaga pumasa.

Those who are identified to have possibly benefited sa leakage, hindi pa po tapos. Kahit me license na sila, once found guilty, their licenses will be revoked. Ginagawa pa po ang list nila ng NBI

I deeply symphatize with those whose names were published as passers but were later stricken down by the CA after they rejected PRC's Res 31.What you can do is join the petition to the CA pointing out that what PRC did is within the authority of PRC. Technically your case is not a retake but for whatever reason they treated your case as retake. Normally either you pass or condition. Your grade is borderline(say 73) and under the law PRC is authorized to increase this to 75(which the PRC did but the CA disagreed).What iam wondering about is how come 1,186 is affected? I thought it is just a simple increase of the pie by increasing lowest passing from 73 to 75. That is not the case. Most probably it is due to the recomputation. When PRC applied the IBE formula 1186 (despite 2% bonus) failed and 1687 passed. what CA did is to bring justice to the 1,186. The CA did this because they concluded that there is no leakage becauseit is not widespread. What is painful is when your name got published, first as passer then as retaker. You can file a case againts PRC for the harm and damage it may have caused you but as it stands now the most practical course is to take a retake which may in effect waive your right to pursue a case againts pRC or CA in the future. On the other hand you may proceed with the MR to the CA and this may take time. Mahirap talaga, kasi nareduce na lang sa 1,687. Iba yong marami kayo at mas malakas ang pressure kahit man lang sa public opinion. Do not despair,pray and hope that this will be a blessing in desguise. Remember it is not technically aretake, more of a conditional grade. God Bless!

Poster at 7:59 am, I am touched by your comment!!! You are right and I can sense that you have a good heart. Comment #2 is badly affected. Nakakalungkot ang kanyang sitwasyon pero may awa ang Diyos. Madaming examinees ang masyadong down ngayon pero lahat ng ito lilipas din. Ang blessings ng Diyos makakamit din ng lahat...

Kahit mag-appeal sila Tadle, pag nakapag-oath taking na, it will be an uphill and quixotic climb in the Supreme Court, especially with the precedent of the 2003 bar exams. Useless ang appeal kung walang TRO. At paano ang TRO kung nag-oath taking na based on a Court decision--which will thus carry the presumption of regularity? Cancellation of license? Major problem of evidence yan!

The Supreme Court is not a trier of facts, so let us see if
Tadle and Baguio flunkers can have the Supreme Court change the CA decision. That will take time, and the passers will have taken their oath by then, and it is difficult to even attempt to invalidate their license on a case to case basis because it is impractical to PROVE who among each passer actually benefited from leakage!!! The CA decision pinpointed VENUES, Manila and Baguio, all right, but NOT specific EXAMINEES among 26,000 of them in these locations!!!

Anyway, ang matutuwa dito, lawyers. At ang problema, nasa Baguio flunkers and others. They are running short of time. Dapat, magprepare na sila for the coming December exams, otherwise maiiwan sila ng biyahe!!! They will look pathetic if they want to reform others but they cannot even do what is best for themselves.

The Baguio Braves should concentrate on punishing the culprits and reforming the exam system. The flunkers among them will just look sour graping by insisting on wholesale retake. The Baguio flunkers are the ones who need retake--not the passers-- because despite the leakage, they, the Baguio flunkers, failed. So they should take care of their own incompetence before branding passers as incompetent who need retake. Pag nag-appeal pa sila, Baguio Braves nga sila, matapang nga sila--pero, meaning: MATAPANG ANG HIYA !!!

Simple lang ibig sabihin- PALPAK ang PRC. Noon pang simula, palpak na. Bakit kasi manipulate ng manipulate ng scores?

Ako mataas average ko at di naman borderline. Bakit ako pinaparetake? pakisabi sa mga kasam natin, wag si Grace Urquiaga Pacleb ang gawing spokesperson kasi mayabang siya at walang respeto at selfish magsalita. At saka matanda na siya. Halatang malapit nang mag50 years old. Marami sa atin na ayaw sa retake ang ayaw din sa kanya. Bat di rin tayo ang pagsalitain at baka maawa ang mga officials? Si Tita (Matanda, e) Grace kasi, nakakaturn-off ang dating. Parang ginagamit niya ang issue para sumikat. Laging siya ang nasa TV. Bakit siya e mas marami namang credible na magsalita.

NO to RETAKE even for the 1687!!! NO to GRACE PACLEB!!!
NO to PRC!!!

Haynaku, KURAK ka dyan. Ayaw ko rin kay Grace Pacleb or Pacquaio? Parang boxer ang dating sa laki ng katawan. Mayabang nga at kung magsalita dinadamay tayo. Siya lang naman ang natutuwa sa PRC. Balita namin nagreview sa Gapuz. At nag-aral daw ian na di nagduty kasi takot instructors sa kanya. Mas matanda siya e. Halatang ginagamit nga niya ang nursing issue para sumikat. Apir ng apir sa TV. She is not the best and most credible person to speak for us. Dapat ang magsalita, yung mga bata na gaya natin na di third courser. Sa tanda niya, baka pa nga fourth courser siya. Mayabang si Pacleb. Down with GRACE PACLEB. Tumigil ka na sa kadadakdak dahil nakakasira ka sa diskarte ng no-retakers! Sa true lang.

NO TO RETAKE!!!!

Sa totoo lang di siguro lumala ito kung hindi si Grace inihaharap natin na ayaw sa retake. Sabi nga nung makaretake, gusto nila ng retake para lang mahirapan si Grace kasi mayabang. Nakakasira sa ating krusada ang tabain na iyan. Talaga namang ginamit niya itong issue para sumikat. Never heard naman ang taong iyan bago itong nursing scandal. Kumbaga nagride-on siya. At puri siya ng puri kay Rosero. Kaya tuloy marami ang naghihinala sa pagpasa niya. Gracia, sana tumigil ka na at pabayaan mo kaming mga bata na magtrabaho. Magrest ka. Mas makakatulong ka kung itikom mo ang bibig mo. Siguro, mag-gym ka na lang. Balitaan ka rin namin sa nangyayari, otei?

Hindi ko din alam kung bakit ako kasama sa retakers.. I've read one comment here.. We've got the same arguments..

1. Hindi ako nag review sa mga involved review centers.. (proud to say that I am a product of East West Educational Specialists)

2. isinama nila ako sa list nga pumasa..

3. 75 ang average ko (pang miracle baby.. )

4. Never did i cheat sa exam ( sa dami ng hinihingi ko kay Lord that time, di ko na magagawang mandaya)

5. Dinagdagan lang din daw yung grade ko kaya pumasa, at ganun din, dati pa daw nila ginagawa yun..

6. Yun lang, hindi pa ako nakapag register dati inabutan ako nung laro nila ( yung TRO habang may mga nakapila to take their oath..)

O NGAYON SABIHIN NG KAGALANG NA KAGALANG NA SI GNG. ROSERO NA WALANG STIGMA SA MGA JUNE BOARD TAKERS!!!

inggit kay grace??? :P

Inggit kay Grace? Ano naman ang nakakainggit dun? Appear ng appear sa TV at binabalandra ang bilbil na nakakasuka. Agree ako sa naunang commenter about kay Grace. Gusto yatang mag-artista. Ang role niya, katulong o kaya nanay ng mga natalo sa StarStruck.

guys be professional. wag umatake ng personal sa isang kasamahan ng grupo at isa sa mga unang nag-take ng stand against retake. fyi, she is responsible in sending updates to everybody thru text.

i dont think this is a line of thinking of a board passer. for all we know, maybe it is just one of those tactics to divide the board passers.

KASI NAMAN, ANO BA ANG SINABI NIYA SA VIEWPOINTS? ANG YABANG NIYA. KESYO DI DAW SIYA NAGREVIEW PARA PUMASA SIYA. THERE ARE MANY WAYS OF PASSING- LEGAL AT ILLEGAL. WAG NAMAN SANA SIYANG MAYABANG. WALA PALANG SILBI SA KANYA ANG LOCAL BOARD KAYA GANUN ANG ATTITUDE NIYA. GINAGAMIT LANG NIYA ANG ISSUE PARA MADISCOVER NA MAG-ARTISTA. PURO SILA NA LANG ANG NAGSASALITA FOR OUR GROUP E DI NGA SIYA CREDIBLE KASI NAKAKA-TURN-OFF ANG ARRIVE NIYA. MALAKAS MASYADO ANG HANGIN! SI TOTO NA LANG LAGI DAPAT! O MGA FIRST COURSERS. SA DAMI BA NAMAN NATIN NA ANTI-RETAKE NA FIRST COURSERS, NI ISA, WALA SILANG MAKITA NA PUEDENG MAGSALITA FOR US. IMPOSIBLE. NOT UNLESS GUSTO NILANG SILA LANG PARA NGA SUMIKAT!

agree, mahangin masyado ang grace pacleb na yan. noon pa...agree, ms credible kung first courser and representation ng grupo natin...mas malaki ang expectation sa kanya being a second courser in terms of decorum...nasabi man ding UP-los banos graduate. hey, di ba scolar ng bayan siya and therefore, silbi siya dapat sa Inang Bayang Pilipinas?Pinaglalantaran pang di na niya kailangang ang local icense at pwede siyan makaalis ng bansa anytime....grace, makinig ka.

UP Los Banos pala siya? Bakit parang hindi? Di siya kilala ng mga tagroon. I'm sure di siya top student. At siguro 1970's nag-graduate. Masyadong mahangin. Very windy. Wala bang star-struck category para sa mga 4Oish at 50ish? Doon na siya sumali para di na siya makisawsaw sa affairs nating mga bagets.

naku na 'out of context' nyo lang po siguro yung comment ni grace... she didn't mean any harm to all board passers... alam nyo naman ang media, lalo na kung abs-cbn, chop chop ang broadcasting nila lalo pa kung biased sila sa issue...

i have my respect for grace and toto aquino... sila po ang naging voice nating mga 'board passers' (both 1st coursers & 2nd coursers) kasi yung mga first coursers were not that organize pa at that time na kasagsagan ng nursing controversy...

ngayon po, madami na tayong 1st coursers na representative from diff schoolds na member ng ANN...

let us unite po - ALL 2006 BOARD PASSERS! huwag po tayong magpadala sa panggugulo ng media, UST, mga pulitiko sa issue... isa lang ang ipinag-lalaban natin dito - ang ating RN LICENSES!!!

GOD BLESS EVERYONE!!!

Kung marami a palang first coursers sa ANN, bakit hindi sila iharap sa media at wag na si Grace at Toto? They should realize na tapos ang role nila. Ibigay na nila sa mga bata at wag silang matatanda ang laging humaharap.

oo nga naman...sana sa gitna ng lahat ng kguluhnag ito, may mga batng narses na matututo. after all, ang exercise na ito na tayo nag kakaiba ng opinion will do us good for our profession... that is, it gives us opportunity to defend the profession we want embrace and call our own. let is us not forget na habang ina ayos natin ito, carry pa rin natin ang mga intaout this mom, and let us know that she is due Jan. 20th. This mom could really use the blessing of God's power

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.

From ABS-CBN

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"""

4:30 PM

Kasinungalingan lahat yan, kagagaling ko lang sa ibang bansa at hindi naman nila pansin ang tungkol sa cheating doon, kasi sabi nga ng isang friend ko na foreigner..."What for???" they can cheat as many as they can afford. That is a good exercise so that when they took up NCLEX they are already prepared. We don't mind your board exam as long as you passed our examinations and our requirements, that's all!!!

Masyado lang kasi tayong believe na believe sa ating sarili na akala natin nakatuon sa ating bansa ang lahat ng mundo. Ang totoo diyan ay parang Bangladesh na rin ang tingin sa atin ng ibang bansa at hindi naman nila alintana ang mga leakage news natin, kunwari lang sila para at least meron silang masabi pero hindi naman nila inilalagay sa kanilang isip at sa kanilang loob kasi ibang bansa naman tayo para sa kanila at sabi nila "Mind your own business" at ganoon rin daw sila.

Tayo lang naman daw ang nagpapalaki ng storya na para bagong sikat na sikat tayong mga pinoy.
