  4. 30%–I wonder first of all- is there any sort of standard required to get INTO nursing school- are the schools taking everyone and anyone who signs up? Perhaps just for the money the school collects? Secondly, what is the quality of the program and instructors? Third- what is the standard for passing students – what performance measures are in place, is there a way to evaluate the success of the students, the programs and the instructors? How are they evaluating students in an ongoing manner? Many questions . Definitely would not go over well in the USA. School would be shut down….

  5. 30% is not a high figure but that should not take anything away from those that passed congratulations to u all xx

  6. 30% passing rate? That is pathetic! Are the nursing schools even preparing their students to critically think? I am just wondering because here in the US, you don’t graduate unless you pass the HESI which is almost like the nursing board exam. Makes me cringe at those who actually pass… Are they really equipped to be nurses??

  8. To all new RN’S congrats guys…

  9. Chris Jordan says:

    Lidia 33k out of 90 k pass rate is not a good number no matter how you talk around it. The test is a valid test. If it isnt then they shouldnt be giving it and the results are also accurate and valid. 30 percent is a poor number and the schools need to be revamped to better prepare the nurses for the certification exam. It covers basic nursing practice and critical thinking.

  10. Chris Jordan says:

    30 percent that is it… Sad!!

  11. Congratulations to all new nurses you deserved it for passing the RN exams coz you’re not a successful Nurse if you will not pass this very tiring exams. Hurray, God bless.

  12. School is the #1 problem why we have incompetent nurses . There must be an elimination every sem…and private school must set standard grades, if a students can’t attain that grade they must be kicked- out!!!

  13. Wow 30% of people only passed!! In North America 80-90% of RNs pass every year! What the hell kind of nursing are they teaching over there!!??

  14. Dana Ionescu says:

    30% pass rate??? That is insanely low. Better increase education. Basically, 7 out of 10 nurses FAIL. Ridiculous. Pass rate should be above 80% not 30%. Yeah, it’s hard passing because obviously….you aren’t learning enough! Its not the students fault, it’s a reflection of the program/instructors all together. Yup, nursing school is hard. No doubt. It’s not med school, but it’s still challenging. But 30%?? To me, it’s scary!!!

  15. For those who gave negative comments try taking the same set of exam then see for yourself what we’ve been through to get the much deserved license… then you can tell us how easy it is “if you pass”… we strived with blood, sweat and tears from the very first day we decided to take the exam… 30% of us passed and it was because we worked hard for it…

  16. Lidia Marie says:

    Christine Corpuz Kowal-hi there! Im talking about the entire exam.. before the exam gets released,it underwent several testing strategies just to check how reliable and valid it is. In addition to that, in the Phils it follows a certain testing norms to pass the standards of other countries like the us.. 45% is already questionable. In my time,33k+were able to pass out of 90k+examinees. Just saying! Thanks!

  17. Sequin DeMar says:

    Wow. If we had a US school with their grads at a 30% pass rate, the accrediting agencies would put the schools on probation!

  18. Not only that but each semester we had to take a comprehensive on what we should know thus far (during actual finals week btw) and if not.passed you cannot continue on to the next semester.

  19. Yes Jackeline, I had to make 90% on a comprehensive exit exam to exit my program. Its called an NCLEX predictor and it’s given by ATI. You cannot graduate or receive your degree until it has been passed and you have 3 tries total or you must take an extra course. Its is real.

  20. Lidia Marie – you are contradicting yourself. A 30% pass rate tells that the exam is above the students comprehension and needs to be re-evaluated. A valid and reliable test should not have 30 out of 100 students pass . That’s a poor pass rate and thus an invalid and unreliable test of a group of students knowledge. In fact, it should be very telling that the majority that took this test were not prepared for it.

  21. Congratulations to all the new Philippine Nurses. Good luck and God bless you….I am happy for all of you…

  22. Lidia Marie says:

    The passing rate just showed that the exam was valid and reliable.. if it’s 50% passing rate it’s questionable.. it applies to every exam. Just learned this in psychometrics, thus, our new nurses are competitive and competent in their field. It’s not about what school they are come from bec. Nle is mixed of knowledge in school, review center, vicarious learning, field experience, self study and sometimes making a good guess ‘coz there are some questions that we encountered the first time. I still believe that filipino nurses have that incomparable nursing care! ..congrats collegues!#keepthefaith#gowhereyouareneeded#dontmindnegativepeople#nlejuly2010passer.

  23. Cheri Zen says:

    Proud to be from NEU. 100Percent Passing Rate with a TopNotcher-Top 1.????

  24. Hi all! I have a fitness program that works, to lose weight and increase your health, and 100% guaranteed, or money back! I lost 21 pounds and 19 inches in 60 days with the use of a fitness program! Now after 5 1/2 months down 70 pounds! I assure you too will lose the weight! Real Results!

  25. nothing change even before the same result up to now… it’s really not easy to be a REGISTERED NURSE and i am proud!!!

  26. Dalen Malek says:

    Congratulation to those who passed… The Licensure Exam. For Nurses…

  27. 30% passing rate!! It only showed that nursing education in the Philippines is getting poorer….

  28. Irene Chebet says:

    when is the next exam?

  29. Mary Mcgrew says:

    What’s the point of passing this examinations if the country doesn’t even have a job to offer for these hardworking nurses who went through tough times & spent a lot of money, just to be a nurse. I NEED AN ANSWER FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF LABOR IN THE PHILIPPINES.

  30. About bringing in RN’s from the Philippines, they’ve been doing that since the early 1980’s. That’s why there are so many Philippine nurses in California. But they are not taking your job. There just aren’t enough American nurses for the number of patients in this country.

  31. Not a good pass rate. The nursing school I went to had a99% pass rate. The tougher the school the higher the pass rate.

  32. Volunteer volunteer din pag may time :-)

  33. It could be the exam or it could be the school. Or how about there are too many people going into nursing for the wrong reason and it’s karma keeping those from becoming nurses. Either way, this definitely explains why some many of them are piss poor nurses. As an LPN, there is no way in hell I should be teaching an RN something that the state says is out of scope of practice because that RN don’t know how to do something. But in general there are too many people going into nursing for the wrong reason (money).

  34. Congratulations! Must have been tough tough exam… Welcome to the labor force and may the odds be in your favor!

  35. Welcome to your new and more challenging world!!!!!!!!! Goodluck

  36. Yes Valerie. That happens all the time! But then some corporations pay their way here and pay their living expenses to get them here!

  37. So let me understand, they are giving the test in the Philippines so they can give our jobs to foreigners and pay them less

  38. I’M proud to be one of them!

  39. Anu ba yan pababa na ng pbaba ang nkakapasa, sad,

  43. Oh em gee ang hirap siguro tlga ng exam hebe

  44. Yes Jackline Padilla-Fontanez. At my school you have to pass your exit exams. If you don’t pass the first time they try to focus on your weaknesses and help you improve for your second and third try

  45. It makes me wonder how tougher the exam queations are.. CONGRATS to those who passed !

  46. Delia Graves says:

    Yup,my niece, graduate from Pamantasang Ng Lungsod Ng Maynila, successfully passed the Nurse Licensure Exam. Way to go Gellie. Thanks be to God. He is soooooo good. Praise be His name!

  47. Sara Beth says:

    Jackline Padilla-Fontanez Are you referring to something such as HESI? My school WAS doing that (using it as an exit exam after everything was done and if you couldn’t pass it, then it was a no go for graduation) but they were required to get rid of it, rumor has it due to some legal issues (I believe someone brought in a lawyer). It is supposed to be used an evaluation tool, not as a factor to determine if you graduate or not.

  48. at isa ako sa mga 30% na yan..sadyang mhirap po tlaga ung exam

  49. 30%? I wonder what the pass rate on the NCLEX is?

    30%? i think the board of Nursing is doing their part, making board exam difficult inorder to produce “few” BUT competent nurses :) thumbs up Board of Nursing! (continue to make difficult exams :D)

  60. Nun kami back years ago, 27 % lang. Pwede na yan, congrats sa pumasa, wag magsungit sa pasyente hehe, tama be a blessing.

  61. no wonder na 30% lng hindi madali ang board exam ng nursing talagang sunog kilay mo! congrats sa mganew RN

  62. Only 30%? Something’s wrong here…

  63. Grabe, sinasala na ba ng husto?

  64. hooollllyy.. wow! not atleast a half percentage :(
    Congratulation to those who passed… Godbless

  65. Only 30%?!? Either The PI nursing boards are extremely difficult or the colleges are not adequately preparing their graduate nurses. I live in the US and had a chance to tutor some PI nurses. One was very smart. Another could not pass boards. Hope there is a solution. 30% seems like a very low passing rate in my opinion. I am a Fil-Am nurse practitioner. Both RN boards and FNP boards are hard – but the pass rate is much higher nationally.

  66. Janice Jalos says:

    congrats but too low,to all rn welcome to volunteer team. but its your choice to serve the hospital for charity works”KAWANGGAWA” or look for other job na hindi related sa field

  67. Mababa ang passing rate ngaun. Mukang mababa na din ang standards ng mga nursing schools ng phils. Any way congratz sa mga new RNs

  73. Ha Ziel says:

  74. Lisa Shirley says:

    Wow why did so many fail? 70%? Wow!!! And to think many of these nurses will seek employment in the US- scary!

  88. Its ok to produce more nurses but please help us to have nurse jobs here in our country..we are thousands of nurses here in the philippines but we have no jobs opportunities to work as a nurse

  89. Congrats to the 30% who made it through…makes you wonder how hard the test is that more didn’t make it. This is an awful low percentage.

  92. Why so low? Anyways, congrats to new filipino heroes!

  93. Oscar Hill says:

    Dalawa lang ibig sabihin nyan. Its either siguro mahirap na talaga ang boards sinasala nilang mabuti dahil sa dami ng nurses or may diperensya sa system ng education ng mga nurses. Anyways on the positive side kung kasama ka sa nakapasa meaning one of the best ka talaga :) congratulations sa mga bagong RN
