The other big issue is that several hospitals have been burnt by "nurses" that never did any clinical training during their supposed schooling.

I have precepted new US nurses graduates, and some did quite well with their orientation, and some did not..two of the nurses I precepted even lasted to about 6mos. I don't have any idea how they did with their clinical training as well from their "supposed schooling", have to teach from the very basic of spiking an IV, to hanging IVPBs, difference of aseptic to sterile technique,to start a TF..even simple neuro assessment and I am not even asking for a GCS...I guess all I'm saying is that, wherever the nurses are from, from the Philippines, to India, Pakistans, Mexicans, US graduates, we will always come across with people who are less than perfect, they probably need more attention and time to adjust, and of course patience on the part of the preceptor.

to quote my schoolmate, "we should bear in mind, and help everybody realize that it is the exams that are tainted - not the students!

or to put things into its proper perspective, "it's the system & the exams that are tainted - not the students!"

and yes, we refuse to be feasted upon from now on!

all of us deserve to be given a chance to prove ourselves as competent nurse...

i dont think anyone is saying that the june 2006 nle takers are incompetent. i havent seen a post in this forum saying that they are.

the issue here is that the leak provides an avenue for doubting competence. doubt is different from being actually incompetent. nurses always put patients first. therefore we all have to understand that the foreign boards of nursing would like to protect their patients as well.

if i were you, id ask for a retake ASAP. the US wont budge bec of the alleged leakage. and whoever took the june 2006 nle should declare it in their nclex app. and filing one now will get it denied.

fairness is not an issue here. if you want to be fair, you must probably be willing to wait 10 years for them to say that you shouldve really passed.

but if you want immediate results, regardless of the grade you recieved -

ask for a retake

insist on a retake

demand for a retake

tell all your classmates and tell your school to insist on it. dont be afraid to take it again.

prove yourself. be proactive. its the only solution.

Exactly, some never did nay clinical training, because they had 55 hours per term and were in lectures when they needed to be in clinicals. They bought their diplomas. And that is not fair to those of you that do the right thing. These diploma mills need to be put out of business.

You need to speak up about them.............and all of you protest about them, something that you can do something about.

with board of nursing unfilled

60,000 grads may have no nursing exams in december

prc chief rejects p14m retake budget

http://newsinfo.inq7.net/topstories/topstories/view_article.php?article_id=19332

like i said, june 2006 board takers, demand for a retake right now. your dream of a foreign job is in peril.

for the future test takers, although the us is currently not requiring a local license, we can never be sure that this requirement will not change.

the prc created it's own problem. now, there's no member of bon who will make the questions for the december exams. instead of having fewer examinees, they created a serious backlogs where at least 60,000 will have to wait to take their exams (hopefully this year and not next year). if they did not release the results, they could have saved faces and not created divisions. i don't know how all of this will end but hopefully they can have an exam by december.

sure, were not afraid to retake the exam just to prove that we could pass the NLE without leakage. and any international tests for that matter...it's not even an issue here...

and of course we are aware that we should meet the criteria set by US in hiring nurses... and this applies not just in US but also here in the phils...

no question about it...

the issue here is the UP dean's e-mail... the hipocrasy of it all...

btw, when did you take your phil nle? you sounded from another thread that you just came to the us and about to take your nclex in california?

if you take your nle in the phil, for 5 years stragight, you are aware that all tests 1 to 5 are integrated questions of subjects covering funda, mcn, med-surg, psych nsg... and even if test 5 psych nsg (the test w/ leakage) was taken out or nullified... psych nsg questions were also visible in test 1,2, 3 & 4... meaning if we just passed test 1,2 & 4 (test w/o leakage) it's already enough to measure our competencies in those subjects i mentioned ealier... gets? :jester:

i hope they spend the 14m budget in cleaning the oil spill in guimaras... or the rehabilitation of bicol area, due to the mayon volcano eruption...

I salute you whammy78, Thank you for always sharing your sentiments regarding our board exam. You have been a voice here to us here who was a part of the JUNE 2006 NLE, eveyrthing your said was so RIGHT.

its painful to see that all that you've prepared for would go to waste because there are those selfish people who wants to pass the easy way...:madface:

I know God has a better plan for our Batch... this batch, i know after all these things, i know we would be great nurses.

GOD BLESS US ALL!:nurse:
