CA Stops Nurses Oathtaking on August 22

The Court of Appeals has issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) stopping the scheduled oathtaking of nurses who passed the licensure exams on August 22.

The Special Third Division of the Appellate Court issued the order after several nursing students and faculty group questioned the Nursing Board's resolution invalidating Test III and V of the licensure exams and setting the oathtaking on the 22nd.

" ... to preserve the rights of petitioners ... and so as not to render any judgment hereon moot and academic, the temporary restraining order prayed for is granted," the Court said.

The Court scheduled a hearing on the petitions on September 14.
