A Quick Note on the June 2008 Nurse Licensure Examination Results

The last week of July release date for the June 2008 PRC nurse licensure examination is still on track according to the latest available information from the PRC-Board of Nursing website which incidentally went down a few days ago due to heavy internet traffic. It's back online again since yesterday but no new information is posted.

So, hang in there, future nurses. It's just a matter of days and the long wait will soon be over.

The moment the board exam results become available, it will be posted here at Pinoy R.N. and in several other nursing websites.

This blog post will serve as the anchor page for the June 2008 nursing board results. We are posting this anchor page this early so the search engines can index it making the PRC results searchable when it officially becomes available.

In the meantime, here's a nice video to help our future nurse colleagues while the time, relax, and calm those nerves down.

We have been getting word that the result of June 2008 nursing board exam is due to be released at the end of the month with the earliest possible release date on July 20, 2008.

This bit of information is still unconfirmed at the moment. Examinees of the June 1 and 2 , 2008 PRC Nursing Licensure Exam are advised to take these rumors with a grain of salt.

However, Pinoy R.N. would like to take this opportunity to encourage those who are waiting for the June 2008 NLE results to prepare their computer by installing in advance a copy of Adobe Reader as the list of nursing passers will likely be released initially in portable document format (.PDF).

To download and install a copy of Adobe Reader, click this

To facilitate access to the nursing exam results, Pinoy R.N. and Ward Class will be releasing the June 2008 PRC nursing board exam results in PDF, Microsoft Word, and Plain Text formats once it is officially made available by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) and the Board of Nursing (BoN). Results will also be e-mailed to those who submitted their e-mail address to the Pinoy R.N. mailing list.

Philippine Nurses Association Says No to Practical Nursing Program

The Philippine Nurses Association (PNA) recently made known their opposition to the Practical Nursing (PN) program offered by several nursing schools in the country.

Dubbed as the fastest and easiest way to go abroad, some nursing schools have been quick to cash in on the latest trend to hit nursing education.

It’s a dead end program because there is no local demand and no foreign demand for it," said University of the Philippines (UP) College of Nursing Dean Josefina Tuazon at a PNA press conference in Malate, Manila.

Tuazon added, "
Why not maximize the nurses we have? We have nurses who have not passed yet. What's the point of creating another layer or category of nurses?"

The nursing group also related the bad experiences of two new Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) graduates who were not able to find jobs in the United States, contrary to the promises of practical nursing schools in the country.

Currently, a proposal is being evaluated by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) formalizing these courses through a ladderization of the nursing curriculum where students can enroll for a shorter course and graduate as practical nurses or continue schooling for a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree en route to becoming a full-pledged registered nurse (RN).

Rhode Island Joins 22 Other Member States in the Nurse Licensure Compact

It's official, Rhode Island is now a compact state. It is the 23rd state to join the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC).

Established in January 2001 as an interstate agreement among Utah, Maryland, Arizona, and Wisconsin, the NLC became a successful mutual recognition model of nurse licensure allowing nurses to have one license (in his/her state of residency) and practice in other participating states without the need to apply for a separate license in that state.

At present, the NLC is composed of 23 member states and has received widespread support from many state nursing associations, hospital associations, and the U.S. Department of Commerce as it provides for improved access to licensed nurses and quality nursing services in times of great need.

List of Nurse Licensure Compact Member States

The Colorado Board of Nursing recently made changes to their eligibility requirements for internationally-educated nurses applying for licensure (NCLEX) by examination.

The board now requires proof that the applicant has achieved a passing score on the English Proficiency examinations required by the Department of Homeland Security for certification of health care workers in section 343 of the Illegal Immigration Reform Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996.

The English Language Proficiency Report, issued by CGFNS, is in addition to the existing CGFNS CES Healthcare Profession & Science Report required by Colorado.

The changes took effect July 1, 2008 and applies to all new applications received on the date the new rule took effect. Applicants who have already applied for CES for Colorado before July 1, 2008 are exempt from the English Language Proficiency Report requirement.

Acceptable english exams and minimum passing scores are the same as those required for the VisaScreen®.
