    if she already took the exam and wants to clear her name then she must re-take it and if one is going to take an exam one always thinks of passing the exam. besides, if she passed the previous exam under the original computation then there's a high probability that she can pass it again. just a matter of formality.

    wouldn't a re-take be less expensive than applying for a $398 vsc that has a high probability to be denied anyway.

    maybe your friend can call cgfns directly or ask around for those that applied for vsc already.

    all i can say is whatever her decision is she must decide now to be included in the dec. batch (if she wishes to re-take). if she can't decide now then she has to wait for the next one, w/c is june 2007.

    above comments are just my opinion. people can do whatever they want.
    this one is better.......you can state your opinion but never speculate or predict things and then announce it to the public that this was the decision of so and so without a reliable source.........

    Just want to add that someone posted here already that a VSC application coming from a June 2006 passer was already denied.

    I think the announcement posted on CGFNS' website re: VSC for the June 2006 passers was pretty clear already.

    But the announcement about the decision about the supreme court was never posted in any website and in the news because in the first place the supreme court has not yet made any decision............

    Lawrence,

    Now if the said girl retook the exam, does it matter to CGFNS the outcome of the exam? I mean pass or fail? Is she now clear for approval of her application?



    Corrupted
    If she does not pass the exam, then they did not pass it and can move on either. You need a passing score on the exam.

    Think about it for a minute, if the nurse cannot pass the licensing exam in their own country, do you want them taking care of you?

    They are clear for approval if the pass the exam this time. If they passed the last time, this should not be a problem.

    some of the recent oath-takers whose only fault was to go to the wrong review centers might get a nasty surprise by christmas.

    sorry, but the supreme court has made statements in the past over this exam, you have to look for them, and this poster had already posted many threads to what was issued by them.

    please take the time to do some looking on your own, instead of trying to argue with people here. it serves no purpose.

    again, read what cgfns has stated, along with everything else:

    the licensing must be in accordance to the rules followed in the us.

    and i have stated over and over again what the rules are, you just do not care to listen to what the rest of us are telling you to do. you are entitled to your thoughts on it, and we are the same. but i have writings of both the supreme court of the philippines and the cgfns handbook to back me up, what do you have?

    the supreme court is the top court in the philippines, not the court of appeals.

    sorry, I thought the affected oath-takers would be interested to know that a case is in the Supreme Court which could affect their lives.

    this fact was glossed over in the Philippine news articles.

    I'll stop posting such articles.

    I am glad that it is posted, there are several here that keep arguing with me that the Supreme Court has never issued a statement, and remember that I look at everything that you post as well as send to me.

    There are just some that refuse to open their eyes and only want things to be their way, but they are not.

    Thanks for posting it. And for letting those with their eyes closed that I knew what I was stating in the first place.

    And after sounding like a broken record again, the Philippine papers pick what they think will attract the most to buy their papers, they could care less about what they write. And I personally think that some of the writers need to get a new job for their corrupt reporting. Some are as corrupt as the stories that they write about, but have no idea of. And leave out the important facts.

    I probably do more reading of papers out of Manila then many of you do. I try to keep very up to date with things, though there are several of you that may think otherwise.

    i agree that one has to speculate the news... what more if its just opinions.
    just because so and so said something like this, doesnt mean that it is factual.
    do not confuse your opinions (personal interpretations or judgement) as facts
    (proved to be true/ event that has occured) unless you have proofs of it.

    i have been reading news everyday, but i havent read of the supreme court issuing a decision. its just funny how we impose our own decisions for the supreme court when the court has not make any announcements yet. but if there really is and i just missed it.. then i am open to the acceptance of it. just post the link.

    let me quote first:

    the judiciary is composed of courts organized into four levels. at the top of the judicial ladder is the supreme court. it is often called as the "court of last resort" since decisions and resolutions issued by it with finality may no longer be appealed. metropolitan trial courts, municipal trial courts, municipal trial courts in cities and municipal circuit trial courts comprise the first level of the judiciary. the regional trial courts occupy the second level while the court of appeals and the supreme court occupy the third and fourth levels, respectively.
    now... for the interpretation...

    if the supreme court has already made a decision...
    why is there still a case goin on in the supreme court (as filed by ust)?!

    it only calls for common sense. if the supreme court has given its final decision before a trial then they can be charged for impartiality. also, remember that it is the last court... that its decision is the final one and no longer appealable.

    the question is simple, "where did the decision come from while there is still a case going on?!"


    this is what im saying pinoy guy...
    "the [supreme court]case has something to do with the oathtaking and the investigation on [the nurses] who benefited from the [leaked questions], but ours involves the source of the [leak] and. their criminal culpability."
    you have just added proof that there is still a case goin on... no verdict yet... thank you for strenghtening the position.

    those in the investigation who benefitted from all these are charged with "criminal cases".. which is a separate case..


    for the benefit of those who have not read this...
    clarification statement of cgfns - faxed to prc dated 11/01/06

    "cgfns does not believe at present time that all legal challenges (of nle) have been fully and finaly resolved."

    "cgfns emphasizes that it accepts and all respects the judgement of the philippine courts and regards all licenses obtained following the june '06 exam as valid nursing licenses. cgfns is required by us law, however, to make a judgement about whether june 06 licensure process was comparable to that required for a us nurse."
    if the cg will agree to the court's decision... then only wait for the final decision of the sc...
    and dont make the decision for the sc. it becomes absurd. lol





    take this very simple statement:

    you can not impose justice by doing injustice to the innocents.


    need i say more?!

    ...the very same reason that will make ust's demand for a "retake everyone" inferior in the "justice system"...

    i say flush the guity ones and bring justice to the innocent.

    So much has been said about the June 2006 passers getting or not getting their Visa Screen thingy. Just wondering… I have heard before that PRC offered the June 2006 Board Passers the option to sign out and have their exam results (passing exam results) nullified/cancelled out and retake the exams in December. Apparently, only three signed up for it. I’m curious, what if you just sign up to nullify your grade and then not retake the test anymore because you no longer want to. Will that make applying for a Visa Screen easier? I mean, doesn’t nullifying your exam result equal to not taking the June 2006 NLE it at all? (In the law, doesn’t the word nullify indicate that something will be treated as though it never happened or existed before?) No grade will be verified anymore. My idea maybe complex but for anyone who’s rushing and feel that they don’t really need a local exam (which is always a personal choice I believe), wouldn’t that be a solution to consider? And I only said this under the situation that the Supreme Court hasn't said that the passers are guilty. In short, no one has proven that they are guilty. And innocent people should be able to get their Visa Screen.
