PIA Press Release

Nurses application for special voluntary retake starts

Iloilo City (3 April) -- The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) recently announced that application for the voluntary re-take examination for nurses licensed under the June 2006 Nursing Licensure Examination (NLE) started April 2 until May 11, 2007 at the Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC) Central and Regional Offices.

The voluntary re-take examination was initiated by DOLE to enhance the employability of the nurses licensed under the June 2006 nursing board exam after the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS) required the re-take of Tests III and V for those applying for the VisaScreen Certificate.

Those who will file their applications have also to submit the following documents: June 2006 Notice of Admission (NOA) if still available; photocopies of Certificate of Registration and Professional Identification Card, if issued already; photocopy of transcript of records; and photocopy of Birth Certificate.

Labor and Employment Secretary Arturo Brion said the filing by representatives will be allowed for those who cannot personally file their applications during the filing period. However, applicants are required to personally claim their NOA from the PRC at least one week before the examination.

The voluntary re-take examination may be taken either in the June 2007 or the December NLE and may be taken only once at either dates, at the licensees' choice. No examination fee will be charged to the applicants.

Also, the DOLE clarified that attendance in the special review classes that will be conducted in the different selected nursing schools in the country is not a requirement for the voluntary re-take examination.

Brion said that the result of the voluntary re-take shall not affect the validity of the license previously issued by PRC. (PIA) [top]
