"No Leakage" for the Upcoming November 2008 NLE
According to the officials of Board of Nursing (BON), the upcoming November 28-29, 2008 Nursing Board Exam will be “leakage-free”, despite reports that text messages are being circulated that a review center in Baguio, Cebu and Surigao have some parts of the exam.
BON Chairperson, Carmencita Abaquin together with BON member Marco Sto.Tomas have assured the public the full credibility of the forthcoming examination. Security measures have been adopted to prevent another Nursing Board Exam Scandal.
Sto. Tomas said 500 questions per test have been encoded into the computer. These will enter certain parameters/framework per competency (for the 5 tests) and the computer will extract these questions based on the framework by which they have been entered.
“All these are done under quarantine meaning we have no communication outside,” Sto. Tomas said.
And then the questions will be extracted, printed, and sealed, he said.
Printing has been centralized unlike during the board exam controversy in 2006 when printing was done per region.
In transporting of questionnaires, there will be escorts from the Philippine National Police (PNP) and National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), Sto. Tomas said.
There are a total of 88,750 nursing graduates set to take the second licensure examination on November 29 and 30, with the figure considered to be the highest in PRC history.
