Fr. Diola calls retake of 2006 nursing board exams unfair

Cebu City (3 October) -- Fr. Carmelo Diola joined the call of those opposing the retake of the 2006 nursing board exams as he personally considered it unfair to those who honestly studied and reviewed for the test.

Diola bared Cebu prelate Ricardo Cardinal Vidal has not yet officially voiced his opinion on the retake of the nursing board exams as recently ordered by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Diola said the cheating committed by some students during the examination should not implicate majority of the nursing graduates who strove hard to passed the test.

The situation is similar to what is happening in the country right now where others are honest but are not organized and apathetic while those who are dishonest have the resources, according to Fr. Diola.

The Cebu Provincial Board approved a resolution yesterday asking the President to exempt nursing board passers from the Visayas and Mindanao from the planned retake as cheating was only proven in Manila.

In the same resolution, it also urged Pres. Arroyo to punish only those who were responsible for the leakage that marred the 2006 nursing examinations.

The resolution was passed in support of the appeal of the Tapok-tapok sa Nagkahiusang Nurses Batok sa Retake (Tanan) to the President excluding them from her order. Tanan is composed of 1,723 board passers from Central Visayas who stressed that they did not benefit from the leakage.

Diola likewise echoed the same sentiment to only identify the perpetrators behind the leakage and deal with it swiftly. (PIA-Cebu/FCR) [top]
