Out of the 78,000 nursing examinees who took the Nursing Board Exam June 2007, only around half will pass the NLE. The Department of Labor and Employment is formulating a new policy to allow the "flunkers" in the state-administered nursing licensure examinees last June to continue practicing their profession as "practical nurses."

Labor Secretary Arturo Brion said that only about only about 40,000 of the 78,000 examinees -- including the re-takers of the leakage-marred 2006 exam -- to pass the test.

"We're anticipating that many of them (flunkers) will do re-take so we think that one fall-back position is to have them licensed as practical nurses. This is assuming that there are some who would not do the re-take," Brion explained to reporters.

Brion also mentioned that the results of the June nursing board licensure exam would be released by middle of August.

Practical nurse in the Philippines are High School graduate who undergo a 2-year vocational nursing courses so that they can work in medical facilities. They perform simple medical tasks, mostly dealing with patient's medication and care, they should be under the supervision of a nurse or a physician.

Out of the 42,000 who took the June 2006 licensure examination, only 17,000 passed the test.
The government, however, was forced to administer a retake of two parts of the exam after the United States' Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools said it would not admit passers of the leakage-tainted June 2006 test.

Recently read an article in the Inquirer.net that nurses who does nto pass the exam will be credited
