RP gov't inclined to partial retake

The Philippine government is inclined towards conducting a partial retake of the scandal-marred June 2006 examinations instead of a complete retake of the entire test, which an American organization of nurses have asked them to do.

In an interview by the Manila Times, Dante Ang, chairman of the Commission on the Filipino Overseas, said they would likely send a team to the US to meet with officials of the American Nurses Association (ANA), a professional organization of around 12 million registered nurses in the US. Sending a Philippine delegation is currently the option being considered by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), in light of ANA's clamor for a full retake. Although ANA is not a regulatory body, it wields significant influence among US legislators, a matter that has some local officials wary of clashing with ANA over the exam retake.
