//News// ANA eases position on June retakers

The American Nurses Association, an organization of registered nurses in the U.S., has eased its position on June 2006 exam retakers.

In an e-mail, the ANA said it will abide by the decision of the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS) to accept a retake of test 3 and 5 of the compromised June nursing licensure exams.

In the e-mail, posted in the nclex-rn.net/nclex forum, ANA said a successful score in Test 3 and 5 of the exams, along with the completion of other U.S. licensure requirements would be sufficient for any of the affected June board passers to work in the U.S.

"The Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools has agreed to accept tests 3 and 5 for purposes of the prescreening. Given this, you are only required to retake tests 3 and 5. While ANA would have preferred a different outcome, retaking tests 3 and 5, plus meeting the other licensure and visa requirements is all that you need to do to work in the United States as a registered nurse," the e-mail read.

Earlier, ANA called on the Philippine government to conduct a full retake of the compromised June exams, despite an announcement by CGFNS that a retake of test 3 and 5 would be sufficient.
