A five-man nursing panel is set to leave for Philadelphia tomorrow morning to meet with Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS) officials on Monday to appeal the February 14 decision of the CGFNS to deny June 2006 nursing board passers VisaScreen certificates.

The appeal group is composed of Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) chair Leonor Rosero, Bacolod City Rep. Monico Puentevella, former Board of Nursing chair Eufemia Octaviano, Fatima University Dean Remigia Nathanielz, and Alliance of New Nurses president Renato Aquino.
Bacolod City representative Monico Puentevella is optimistic. “So many things happened between September when CGFNS was here and today, so we are hoping we can convince them to reconsider the decision," Puentevella said.
