It's Over: CGFNS Reaffirms Decision

The Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS International) on tuesday (Manila time) reaffirmed its decision to deny June 2006 nurses VisaScreen Certificate eligibility sans a partial retake of the compromised June 2006 Nurse Licensure Examination.

The announcement came after CGFNS Chief Executive Officer Dr. Barbara Nichols, CGFNS Board of Trustees President Dr. Lucille Joel and counsel to CGFNS John Ratigan met with the Philippine appeal delegation led by Bacolod Representative Monico Puentevella on monday.

In an announcement on its website, CGFNS stressed that decision was based on U.S. law, and what U.S. law required of CGFNS in the circumstances of the June 2006 examination. The key question was not what Philippine authorities did, but what U. S. authorities would have done in similar circumstances.

Congressman Puentegago:This congressman says things regarding nursing laws and immigration that is beyond his understanding. He's not even a nurse for crying out loud.
Rosero: The Prc chair who mishandled the leak issue and is further aggravating the situation due to her idiocy of US immigration and nursing laws. The Filipino people deserve better.
