Cynthia Villar on Pinoy Nurses


Cynthia Villar, senatorial candidate of UNA and former Representative of the district of Las Pinas, insulted the sensibilities of Pinoy Nurses who took to the internet to air their displeasure at what Mrs. Cynthia Villar uttered on Pagsubok ng mga Kandidato, a GMA News TV segment. Cynthia Villar said among others: “Actually, hindi naman kailangan na ang NURSE ay matapos nung BSN, kasi itong ating mga nurses GUSTO LANG NILANG MAGING ROOM NURSE o sa Amerika or sa other countries eh ano LANG SILA, yung parang MAG-AALAGA, HINDI NAMAN SILA KAILANGAN GANUN KAGALING…”

This statement, appalled the Filipino nurses all over the world. My friends are up in arms with this statement and are calling even for such drastic measure as to boycott Mrs. Villar.

Here is the transcript of the segment. Pagsubok ni Cynthia Villar mula kay Mareng Winnie: “Totoo bang pumanig kayo sa may-ari ng nursing schools na gusto sanang ipasara ng Technical Nursing Committee at CHED?”

Winnie Monsod:
Nung kayo po ay nasa Kongreso, Kayo ay naging chaiman ng Committee on education, at noong panahon na iyon, 2005-2006, nagkaroon ng malaking kontrobersya, kasi yung Comission on highed education gustong isara ang 23 nursing schools sapagkat ang dami dami nilang walang kalidad, at tsaka nasasayang lang yung pera ng mga nursing students tapos hindi sila makapasa ng professional regulatory exam or yung tinatawag na NCLEX. Nung ginawa ito ng CHED, mukhang nag-intervene po ang kongreso, sa iyo, yung committee on education at humihingi kayo ng dialogue. Ang bottom line, is that walang nasara na eskwela. And as a result,nag-resign po si Chairman Fr. Rolando Dela Rosa, nag-resign ang buong technical committee on nursing education. Ngayon, ang question ko, it seems nag-side po kayo sa side ng business, sa mga owners ng school. At tsaka hindi niyo pinakinggan yung mga kailangan magawa para sa mga nursing students na nawalan na ng pera, hindi naman sila pwedeng pumasa. Now how, Cong.Villar, can you reconcile itong parang seeming disconnect between yung desire ninyo to help the poor at tsaka yung pagpanig niyo sa mga owners ng mga educational institutions na gustong isara ng technical nursing committee at tsaka yung CHED?

Cynthia Villar:
Maraming salamat mareng winnie i want to explain that situation to you, hindi naman ganoon ang istorya noon. Ang nangyari noon, binigyan nila ng permit yung mga schools to open, ng CHED. Tapos gusto nila ipasara, nakapag-invest na yung mga may-ari ng schools sa mga kanilang facilities. And then, sinasabi nila na kaya daw nila gustong ipasara dahil walang tertiary hospital, kasi sa mga nursing school to, na where they can train. Ang sinasabi namin noon, hindi naman po kami kumokontra sa CHED, ang sinasabi namain, kasi tinignan namin yung syllabus, yung mga courses na kunin nila, and then nakita namin na after lang, sa third year kailangan nila yung tertiary hospital so ni-request namin na hindi nalang ipasara yung pre-nursing, yung first two years. (end of timer)

Winnie Monsod:
Follow-up question nalang po ano, ha? Ay kung ganoon pala ang istorya, bakit bumaba pa ang mga nurses na-employ sa abroad, kasi hindi sila qualified? In other words, if it’s only a matter of investment, bakit po hindi sila ma-employ employ? At bakit po nag-resign ang technichal nursing education committee, at tsaka nag-resign after only 7 months in office? Do you think they just did not understand?

Cynthia Villar:
No, yung pag-reresign po ni father is a personal quarrel with the owner of a school. Medyo personal po yun. Pero yung amin po, ay sinasabi po namin sa kanila na actually, HINDI NAMAN KAILANGAN ANG NURSE AY MATAPOS NG BSN, kasi itong ating mga nurses, GUSTO LANG NILA MAGING “ROOM NURSE.” Sa America or sa other countries, ano lang sila, YUNG PARANG MANG-AALAGA. HINDI NAMAN SILA KAILANGAN GANOON KAGALING. kasi sa ibang country (end of time/buzzer).

Mrs. Cynthia Villar is the wife of current Senator Manny Villar. President Obama recently recognized a Filipina nurse “for her heroic act that saved 20 newborns when superstorm Sandy slammed the New York University’s Langone Medical Center” in his State Of The Union address.
