Entire nursing board changed

Entire nursing board changed

By Sam Mediavilla, Reporter

President Arroyo on Tuesday replaced the entire Board of Nursing of the Professional Regulation Commission as Malacañang admitted it was not moving fast enough to resolve the scandal triggered by a leak in the nursing exam last June.

Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita said the President signed the appointment of five new members of the board after accepting on October 27 the resignations of Eufemia F. Octaviano, the board chairman, and all five members: Remedios Fernandez, Letty Kuan, Estelita Galutira, Anesia Dionisio and Virginia Madeja.

Ermita said Octaviano and her team would be replaced by Carmencita Abaquin, who was appointed acting chairman and by Leonila Faire, Betty Merritt, Perla Po and Marco Antonio Santo Tomas as acting members.

The replacements were recommended by the Professional Regulation Commission and the Department of Labor and Employment.

The new board will prepare the questionnaires for the next nursing examination on December 2 and 3.
Reacting to The Manila Times story that the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS) would screen Filipino nurses who passed the June board exam, Ermita said the government was as eager as the new batch of Filipino nurses to have the controversy finally end.

“We would like to see the problem on this licensure examination for nursing come to an end because the next examination will be December 2 and 3, hardly a month away. Second, please note that the Court of Appeals had already ordered that the remaining nurses who passed could take their oath, and they have been taking their oath,” he said.

Warning from CGFNS

The CGFNS on Monday warned that Filipino nurses who belong to this year’s batch of examinees could be denied when applying for VisaScreen application.

The CGFNS is an international institution screening foreign nurses applying for US jobs.

“We cannot fault the CGFNS for taking such a position, because if they think that is the correct thing to do in order to remove any doubt about the competence of the newly passed nurses, then that is the call of the CGFNS,” Ermita said.

He promised to push the NBI into coming up with its final report that would identify the nurses who took classes in review centers such as the Gapuz, Ingress and Pentagon Review Centers, and who among the reviewees would retake the test.

“We are hoping that all these will help fine-tune the validity and eligibility of those who passed the examination, so we could persuade the CGFNS that the government’s effort to redeem the integrity of the nursing profession is genuine,” he said.

NBI Director Nestor Mantaring has said the report on the leakage is being delayed by the tedious process of going over the names of reviewees to determine who benefited from the leak.
Labor Secretary Arturo Brion said there were glaring disparities in the manner the PRC recomputed the grades of the examinees.

“I am not ready at this point to come out with specifics but I can generally tell you that we have found a lot of aberrations,” Brion told reporters Tuesday.

DOLE probe

He said he would submit a report by Monday on the result of the labor department’s own inquiry that is based on the complaints of 20 examinees who had passed the examination but flunked after the PRC recom­puted their grades.

Brion said what the NBI did was compare the grades on the PRC’s master list that contains the names and grades of the 42,000 examinees with the “retake list” and the “deemed passed list.”

Lily Pineda, Brion’s chief of staff, said there were examinees on the retake list who were passers on the master list and vice-versa. There were also names on the deemed passed list that were listed as having failed on the master list.

“If you will use the master list, the passers are not supposed to take any retake, because under the master list they passed. So why should they be required to retake?” Brion said. “There are aberrations.”

The PRC “never gave any comparison with the master list and that puzzles us. It should have a good explanation for this,” Brion added.

“This is why we are very hesitant in endorsing an oath-taking at this point,” Brion said, but quickly added that he respects the appellate court’s decision allowing the oath-taking while a motion for reconsideration was pending.

General retake

Brion’s position on the issue, along with Chairman Dante Ang of the Commission on Overseas Filipinos, was for a general retake of Tests 3 and 5. But the court ordered that only 1,687 examinees retake the two tests, saying that they benefited from the recomputation of the grades which the court nullified.

Ermita also said the President has also upgraded the appointment of Gilda Elepano-Pico, acting LandBank president and chief executive officer, to president and CEO.
