Punish nursing exam cheats–bishop

Punish nursing exam cheats–bishop

Cebu Daily News

ILOILO CITY—The president of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has called for the punishment of those responsible for the alleged cheatring in the June 2006 nursing board examinations.

"The leakage from its very inception, by whomsoever it was started, is a criminal offense against the country. The principal agents and their cooperators must be punished by the court," CBCP president and Jaro Archbishop Angel Lagdameo said.

Lagdameo made the call in a letter to the Association of New Nurses on Panay (Annopa) and the nurses' parents.

The group is opposing a retake of the licensure examination in all regions.

Lagdameo said that cheating and stealing are immoral and unjust.

"It creates a situation in which even the innocent suffer because they become suspect or are falsely accused and may even be meted out with punishment while the real culprits escape. It is unfair to the honest," said the prelate in his letter dated Oct. 13.

The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) has filed a criminal complaint against 17 officials of three nursing review centers allegedly involved in the leakage during the June licensure exam.

The respondents, officials of R.A. Gapuz Review Center, Inress Review Center and Pentagon Review Center, are accused of violating Republic Act 8981 or the Act Modernizing the Professional Regulation Commission.

Lagdameo said those responsible for the leakage "carry a great burden in conscience for the scandal and criminal dishonesty they have committed against the institution."

He pointed out that the incident has tarnished the reputation of the country's nurses abroad.

"Pity the country! Already poor economically, yet almost bankrupt morally, the innocent are counted among the cheaters and thieves. Jesus Christ is dying again!" said Lagdameo.

The prelate said, in light of the NBI findings that the leakage was confined to Manila and Baguio City, he supports the decision that the retake of parts of the tests covered by the leakage should be confined to examinees in these two areas, specifically to "those who have cheated or been served by the leakage."

"It is unfair and unjust to subject innocent examinees and to lump them up with those who cheated," said Lagdameo.
