Nursing Students/Examinees Fall Prey to Fund Scam of Northcap Review Center in Bataan

· Filed Under In the news 

Because of fund mess up by one of the review centers in Balanga, Bataan, more than a thousand aspiring Nursing students have appealed to the PRC to grant them extension to file applications for the June 1 & 2 Nursing Board Exams. The last day was supposed to be April 18.

According to the owner of Northcap Review Center in Balanga City, Josephine Paguio, Northcap-Baguio’s Administrative Officer Vivian Lazaro did not file with the PRC the application of 1,067 nursing reviewers from Northcap branches in Central Luzon and North Luzon, 271 of which come from Bataan.

Paying P1,150 per applicant, the total amount paid by Northcap reviewers amounted to more than P1.2 million, which Lazaro did not remit to the PRC, Paguio said.

Parents of the nursing reviewees are quick to react and said their children were not at fault as they complied with the requirements. They should not be punished for the wrongdoing of a Northcap-Baguio official.  Parents are the primary influence to students nowadays to take the Nursing profession and put it as the top choice for enrollees this year.

Other parents said their children suffered some form of trauma and lack of enthusiasm. Surprisingly, they did not blame the owner of the review center in Balanga City as Paguio is doing all she can to resolve the problem.

Paguio said they have filed with the Bataan Prosecutors Office an estafa case against the runaway lady Vivian Lazaro.
