PRC calls off oath-taking of nursing board passers

PRC calls off oath-taking of nursing board passers

The Professional Regulation Commission postponed Monday’s oath-taking of nursing board passers after the labor department said the Court of Appeals decision allowing the oath-taking is not yet final and executory.

PRC Chairwoman Leonor Tripon-Rosero issued the announcement after the commission released the names of 1,687 board passers who need to retake tests 3 and 5 of the board examination.

Rosero said that officials of the commission will consult Solicitor General Eduardo Nachura on the legality of the oath-taking.

Some 2,000 to 3,000 nursing board passers gathered at the PRC auditorium to attend Monday's oath-taking ceremony. Graduates with surnames beginning in C and D were supposed to be given priority.

On Friday the Court of Appeals ruled that more than 17,000 nursing graduates who passed the licensure test conducted last June 11 and 12 can take their oaths because none of them appeared to have benefited from the cheating, based on the findings of the PRC’s Board of Nursing.

The court nullified a re-computation done by the PRC to cleanse the test of the effects of the leakage. As a result of the re-computation, some 1,600 examinees who failed the test passed while almost 1,200 who passed, flunked.

The court ruled that the 1,600 initial flunkers would have to retake Tests 3 and 5 of the licensure examination.

Malacañan on Sunday said it wanted closure to the nursing test controversy as officials vowed to implement measures to strengthen the nursing profession.

The PRC had already administered the oaths to around 3,000 examinees nationwide when the CA issued a temporary restraining order on August 18 in response to a petition filed by various groups led by Rene Tadle of the University of Sto. Tomas College of Nursing.
