Rating of NLE
It is roughly a month before the December 2010 Nursing Board Exam, shall we take a look at how rating of the Nurse’s Licensure Examination is produced.
According to Section 15 of R. A. 9173 or the Philippine Nursing Act of 2002, in order to pass the examination, an examinee must obtain a general average of at least 75% with the rating of not below 60% in any subject.
An examinee who obtains an average rating of 75% or higher but gets a rating of below 60% in any subject must take the examination again but only with the subject or subjects where he or she failed. He or she must have an average of 75% to pass that test item.
Renewal examination. The examiner who failed in the first test taking must process his or her papers for the next board examination within two (2) years after the last failed examination.
Reconsideration of Ratings. There are cases that the examiner really passed such item in the exam, but the problem was on the clerical or mechanical part of checking the examination. The examinee could then submit a request for reconsideration of rating to the Commission within ninety (90) days from the date of the official release of the examination results.
Right from experience, it is better to take the Nursing Licensure Examination in one strike. The efforts in processing the papers as well as sleepless nights are not everyday activities that an individual who aspires to be a professional nurse, so give your best so as to get a passing rate of 75% or above in this upcoming board exam.
