CGFNS Denies VisaScreen Certificates for 2006 Nursing Board Passers Unless Passing Retake

The Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS) recently announced that Filipino nursing graduates who passed the leakage-marred June 2006 nursing licensure examination are not eligible for a VisaScreen Certificate unless they retake parts of the exam. CGFNS requests the Philippine authorities to provide an opportunity for re-take of test 3 and 5 to all 17, 323 passers without surrender of licensure. Through taking the equivalent of these tests and obtaining a passing score, the June 2006 passers may still be issued visas to the US. VisaScreen Certificate is a requirement to apply for a nursing or related job in the US. Hence, this applies only to the US and not to other countries accepting Filipino nurses. CGFNS maintains the integrity of foreign licensing systems as it is the ultimately affects the health and safety of patients in the United States. All passers in the June 2006 nursing licensure exam had been sworn in as licensed nurses on the basis of a decision by the Philippine Court of Appeals in October last year. Charges are also filed against officials of review centers implicated in the leakage of exam materials however, the cases have not progressed so far.
