PRC to allow nurses oath-taking after TRO expires

PRC to allow nurses oath-taking after TRO expires

The Professional Regulation Commission on Thursday said it will allow the oath-taking of nursing board passers after a temporary restraining order issued by the Court of Appeals expires on October 18.

PRC Chairwoman Leonor Tripon-Rosero told the Senate Committee on Civil Service and Government Reorganization that she will allow the oath-taking unless Malacañan orders otherwise.

The appellate court issued the TRO on August 18 based on a petition filed by several nursing groups asking the court to invalidate the results of the June 12 Nursing Licensure Examination (NLE), which was marred by leakage.

During Thursday’s hearing, Dante Ang told the Senate that he backs a retake of the nursing board to maintain the integrity of the exam.

Rosero maintained her position against a retake.

The National Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday said the NLE leakage scandal was limited only to Baguio City and Manila and that 17 officials of at least three review centers would be charged for their alleged involvement.

Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita said President Arroyo and the Cabinet have agreed to let the Department of Labor and Employment decide whether to order two of the five-part examination retaken based on the NBI’s findings.

NBI Director Nestor Mantaring told a Malacañan press briefing that the bureau has completed the investigation and would press charges against 17 officials of three review centers before the Department of Justice for violating Republic Act No. 8981, the law that modernized the PRC.

The officials face six to 12 years in prison if found guilty, he said.
