Fixer/teacher runs away with nursing grads’ grease money

As if low global demand for nurses wasn’t enough to deal with, 72 nursing graduates won’t be able to take their licensing test this December because a fixer ran away with their money.

The [Clinical Instructor] allegedly collected P950 from each graduate and promised them that he would handle their NLE applications with the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).

On top of this, Carrasco said the CI also charged the complainants with P500 for the five-page PRC application form and an additional P100 allegedly as grease money for PRC personnel so that their applications would be given “priority”.

After collecting the money, the fixer, who had a day job as a nursing school instructor, disappeared.

Not so funny now, is it?

The licensing exam application is given away free, as it turns out. Something the nursing graduates would have known if they’d bothered to file their papers themselves. I mean, it’s not like they have jobs or anything.

The nursing graduates were reportedly inconsolable when they found out their fixer ran away with their money. Which is illogical if you consider that they were basically dealing with a petty criminal.


  1. I do not get it at all! Why do they go to some “fixer” or “facilitator” to file as simple as licensure exam? I JUST DO NOT GET IT AT ALL!

    I just cannot understand why Filipinos consult with Garfunkel on immigration matters when they can do it themselves. Petition? Fill in the forms on-line! Not thru Garfunkel who charge to the nose. As simple as application for disability insurance, they consult pro-bono lawyers.

  2. PhilGov and Philippine newspapers should make parents and students aware that nurses are not in demand abroad. If we are to believe POEA only 2,000+ went to America for year 2008(?) and 2009(?) the rest of the thousands went to god-forsaken place called Middle-East and UK.

    The unhirabled nurses gets to work as call girls in call centers that makes better money than nurses in Makati Medical.

  3. -The second section of the test is a practical analysis.

    The very first thing to look at is the school’s accreditation. Skills-enrichment courses for blacksmithing,
    forging, ironwork, and ornamental metal work can broaden the range of
    industries where he can find work.

  4. Generally I do not read article on blogs, but I
    would like to say that this write-up very forced me to take a look at and ddo
    so! Your writing style has been amazed me.
    Thanks, quite great article.

  5. Compounding is the extemporaneous preparation of a customized pharmaceutical by prescription order from a licensed practitioner.
    But yet there are differences besides different production form, that’s why, as in the case with Primobolan, there is a sense to
    consider the drugs apart. Extracting fragrance may take weeks or months
    and must be done very carefully.
