Exams board says nursing test results not yet out – Sun.Star Baguio!

THE Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC) has called on the public, especially examinees who recently took the 2006 nursing board examinations, not to believe text messages allegedly made by the PRC and the Board of Nursing (BoN).

In a statement, PRC chair Leonor Tripon-Rosero said the results of the 2006 exams have been cancelled and that a re-examination has been scheduled in July. The same text message says that examinees will have to shell out P900 for the re-examination, that even non-reviewees of the RA Gapuz Review Center benefited from the exam leakage and that results of the exam reveal a 43.8 percent passing rate.

Rosero said the official results of the examination will only be release in two weeks time in the official website of the PRC at and in leading national broadsheets.

Earlier, a group of examinees petitioned the PRC to postpone the release of the results pending the outcome of their request for the creation of an independent body to investigate the allegations.

The BoN earlier dismissed allegations that RA Gapuz “leaked” the test questions and answers to its reviewees saying that the accusation was mere black propaganda caused by competition among review centers.

But affected examinees and lawyers representing them said the BoN is not the proper body to decide on the complaint because one of its members is being accused of leaking out test questions to a review center.
