OSLO, Norway Dec. 15 – Nurses problem greeted newly-arrived ambassador to Norway Elizabeth P. Buensuceso who arrived on Dec. 11 to assume her post vice Ambassador Victoria S. Bataclan who went back to Manila after completing her tour of duty.


Members of the first batch of 2002 Filipino nurses in Oslo who took the Drug Administration test during that year met at the embassy on Friday, Dec. 12, the day Ambassador Buensuceso reported for work, to draw plans how to counter the cheating charges leveled against them.

Speaking before the nurses, Ambassador Buensuceso advised them to plan thoroughly their course of action and promised that the embassy will assist them in the best way possible to bring their action to the proper channel.

The ambassador also called on the other members of the Filipino community who came to welcome her to do away with the Filipino crab mentality and instead help each other to progress.

Meanwhile, the nurses deplored the charge leveled against them saying it has greatly affected the good reputation they had built difficultly. A nurse related the racial discrimination she had experience saying that local patients shun black-haired nurses.

On the other hand, Philippine Nurses Association (PNA) President Cynthia Baluyot said that Filipino nurses in Norway are highly regarded adding that it was very unfortunate that the old issue on cheating came out again.

Mrs. Baluyot called on her fellow nurses to continue dispensing their duties diligently and prove that they are competent and efficient workers.

In a story published in a local Norwegian paper recently, a certain “Romeo” approached the paper and reported that Mrs. Rizalina Jenssen, general manager and owner of ASOR recruitment agency, was allegedly responsible in the cheating.

ASOR is responsible for bringing in nurses to Oslo and reports have it that since the signing of agreement with the Oslo government in 2003 to provide health workers, ASOR has earned close to NOK 40 million.

Romeo told the paper that Ms. Jenssen copied all his answers and distributed the same to all the examinees adding that she took the answers from him because she knew that he had the competency and experience in drug administration.

“(And) the proctor did nothing to deny Jenssen’s access to the school or even stop her from talking with the examinees,” the paper reported based on Romeo’s narration.

A member of the batch vehemently denied Romeo’s allegation saying that Mrs. Jenssen was not present when they took the exam.

“She was nowhere to be seen while we were taking the exam,” Cesar dela Cruz said. A fellow nurse corroborated his statement saying that she only saw Mrs. Jenssen when she unlocked the door where the exam took place.

Fifty examinees took the test administered by Hogskolen i Vestfold. The school management denied the allegations and said that Mrs. Jenssen was possibly there before the examination but she was not present during the examination.

And contrary to Romeo’s report that almost all passed the exam, the school said that only half passed the test administered during that time. (PNA)
