The results are out! Much to the euphoria of the parents, guardians and sponsors of the 37,527 successful examinees. Now they’re one
tiny step closer to their great American/European/Middle Eastern dream. And for our new registered nurses, it’s time to focus on the battery of tests yet to be taken and the numerous hours yet to be poured on clinical duty before realizing the “this is it, I’m finally leaving this country to make a better life for myself and for every one who depends on my being successful at what I do” moment.
And what of the unsuccessful examinees? All 56,935 of them? Disappointment? Maybe frustration? A lot of rethinking perhaps or reassessing why decisions that led to the taking up of nursing as a course in the first place. To those who are willing AND ABLE to try again, it would mean a lot of financial, mental and emotional preparation in the next couple of months. For the unable, a look at the most attractive prospects: call center agent, medical transcriptionist and medical sales representative.
Congratulations to the schools who are proud molders of this result’s topnothchers! You may view the complete list of successful examinees here.
I sure hope those schools whose ratings are 50% below the national passing rate (39.73%) will heed the call of CHED to “shape-up or be phased out.” And for our top performing schools, keep up the good work!
Note: The lists include the schools that I am familiar with. Apologies to those which I failed to include in the list. You may want to check your rating here.
