A rare example

A rare example

IF MalacaƱang has finally decided to void the scandal-ridden nursing licensure tests and schedule new ones, that would mainly be due to the efforts of Labor Secretary Arturo Brion.


He had said from the start that a retest was an absolute necessity to save the reputation of the nursing profession.

Wednesday, he criticized MalacaƱang for flip-flopping again on whether to have a retake. Presidential spokesmen announced that President Arroyo would not act until the Court of Appeals gives its decision.

Brion said that with appeals to both the Appellate and Supreme Courts, that could take years.

***

Brion, a former justice in the appellate court, said that the President could act independently of the court.

He said the examination process must be shortened to ease the suffering of those who took the exams.

"I cannot understand why some officials would say they are deferring the matter to the Court of Appeals," he said.

Time is of the essence. Foreign hospitals which recruit Filipina nurses have been shaken by the leakage reports. They have to be reassured. The examinees themselves need to be employed.

***

The grapevine reports that for his critical outburst, the powers that be gave Brion a dressing down.

Sources close to the labor secretary, appointed just a week ago to supervise the Professional Regulation Commission which handles tests for nursing and other professions, report that he was seriously considering resigning if the flip-flop would go on.

His refusal to back down has convinced the President to do it his way. Her several advisers telling her to defer her decision were finally ignored.

This has given the nation a rare example of what one clear-thinking executive with the courage of his convictions can do.

Sec. Brion's railroad express, instead of fast tracking the retake, may yet end up delaying it if the Executive Order on retake is questioned before the Supreme Court, especially in view of a pending case in the Court of Appeals.

"Time is of the essence. Foreign hospitals which recruit Filipina nurses have been shaken by the leakage reports. They have to be reassured. The examinees themselves need to be employed."

Says who Mr. Brion? Dante Ang? Give us some names that these foreign hospitals whom you said are shaken!

Tsk Tsk! A Goverment who base decisions on hearsay & not facts...

Philippines my Philippines... the forsaken country...

"This has given the nation a rare example of what one clear-thinking executive with the courage of his convictions can do."

What was clear about his thinking? I'd say he didn't think at all..
