The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) said yesterday that 28,924 out of 67,728 examinees passed the nursing licensure examination given by the Board of Nursing last December.
The examinees included retakers in the June 2006 leakage-tainted nursing licensure examination as well as first-timers and repeaters.
A student from the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM) topped the examination, with a rating of 88.40 percent.
Always a popular subject. isn’t it? At about a 48% pass rate this sessions results are pretty much what can be expected. Former results can be found here for comparison purposes.
As usual PLM, (University of the City of Manila), Siliman University and University of the Philippines provided the top ranking candidates … often those schools have 100% pass rates. While,as usual, there were many dismal showings. There are schools who have 100% fail rates … nursing education here is a real crap shoot … I highly advise checking the dice before placing chips on the table.
