MANILA, Philippines -- At least 43 percent of the 67,000 examinees who took the nursing board in December 2007 have passed, officials of the Professional Regulation Commission told

In a text message to Thursday, Marco Antonio Sto. Tomas, member of the PRC's Board of Nursing, said that out of 67,728 examinees, 28,924 passed for a 43.45-percent passing rate.

Leonor Rosero-Tripon, PRC chairman, said that the percentage was “within the usual range.”

Tripon and Sto. Tomas said the examinees included those who took the exam for the first time, repeaters, removals, and voluntary retakers of all subjects from the June 2006 Nursing Licensure Examination.

“Ten out of the 14 retakers as per Court of Appeals decision passed and 729 out of the 1,132 special certification retakers for CGFNS passed,” he said.

PRC records show that the passing rate for the nursing board has not breached 60-percent since June 2003.

The passing rate for the past five years are as follows:

June 2003, 52.77 percent; December 2003, 43.38 percent; June 2004, 55.74 percent; December 2004, 43.06 percent; June 2005, 49.40 percent; December 2005, 53.97 percent; June 2006 (the one with the supposed leakage), 41.23 percent, December 2006, 49.10 percent; June 2007, 48.32 percent; and the latest December 2007, 43.45 percent

A nursing educator, who requested anonymity, lamented the drop in the quality of Philippine nursing education. He said these figures provide a sad contrast to the growing number of colleges producing nursing graduates -- more than 450 such colleges nationwide.

He said the economic contribution of nursing education was “superficial and artificial in the long run.”

“We have few training hospitals, we are in dearth of fully trained nursing deans and faculty-members, both public and private combined, to complement the education needs of all our nursing students enrolled all over the country,” he said.

Sto. Tomas said the top performing schools with 100 or more examinees that passed were Saint Louis University, Xavier University, and Silliman University.

He said those which had from 30 to 99 examinees that passed were Trinity University of Asia, Mindanao State University, University of the East-Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center, and Palawan State University.
