DOLE Issues Certificates to Successful Retakers of the Controversial June 2006 Nursing Licensure Exams : Filipino Nurses News – Latest & Hottest News about Pinoy Nurses Worldwide

DOLE Issues Certificates to Successful Retakers of the Controversial June 2006 Nursing Licensure Exams

· Filed Under In the news 

Labor and Employment Secretary Marianito D. Roque announced the start of the distribution of Certificates to Nursing Board passers of the December 2007 voluntary retake examination. The certificates distribution started yesterday 7 May 2008 from 9AM to 12 noon and 1:30PM to 4:30PM at the Office of Secretary Roque in Intramuros, Manila, upon the presentation of the examinee’s Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) License.

Roque advised those residing outside Metro Manila to file a claim of their Certificates through the DOLE Regional Offices nearest their place of residence or work. The DOLE Central Office shall then transmit (in batches) the Certificates within three days from receipt of notice from the Regional Office concerned.

The voluntary Nursing retake exams were conducted to clear doubts about the alleged irregularities in Tests III and V of the June 2006 Nursing Licensure Examination (NLE). The controversy has almost brought the Nursing profession down in jeopardy and made a bad impression worldwide on the competence of Filipino Nurses.

729 or 64 percent out of the 1,131 retakers passed the December 2007 examination with a passing grade of at least 75% in both Tests 3 and 5. The rest failed to beat the mark.

Roque clarified to the board passers of the June 2006 NLE that the results of the voluntary retake examination will not affect their status as licensed nurses in the Philippines. However, those who failed will not qualify for US VisaScreen Certificate issued by the US Commission on Graduates of a Foreign Nursing School (CGFNS).

CGFNS has previously announced that it would deny VisaScreen Certificates to the 17,000 passers of the controversial June 2006 licensure exams for Nursing which triggered Senate inquiries and court cases after it was exposed that some nursing review centers got leaks of Tests 3 and 5 and passed them on to their nursing reviewees to ensure passing the board exams.

The schedule of release of individual Certificates are as follows (by Alphabetical Order on Surname):

May 7, 2008 – Abad – Bendo
May 8, 2008 – Bergado – Dayawon
May 9, 2008 – De Guzman – Ganay
May 12, 2008 – Gantangco – Luna
May 13, 2008 – Lusis – Paderes
May 14, 2008 – Padilla – Saloria
May 15, 2008 – Samia – Zolina
