    I think its a good alternative.In case cgfns will not change their decision anymore.

    CGFNS cannot change their decision, they are under contract to the US Federal Govt and have to follow their rules that were set up for them to follow. Same thing that has been said by me all along.

    Appealing to CGFNS 'useless, says Gordon.

    MANILA, Philippines -- The government's plan to appeal the decision of the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS) requiring nurses who passed the June 2006 board examination to retake two leak-tainted tests if they want to acquire US visas is useless, Senator Richard Gordon said Tuesday.

    "I hate to rain on their parade but [the CGFNS] is not going to do that [reverse its decision]. I feel for their [nurses'] parents. They [PRC] are giving false hopes to the passers and their parents," he said.

    Gordon said the solution to the problem of credibility -- the retaking of the exam in areas where the leak was proven to have happened.-- had been proposed long before,

    "I don't like to say ,'I told you so.' Now every one of the 17,000 must retake the exam because the taint is still there," he said.
