Dear Fashion PULIS,
I'm an avid fan and it has been my habit to check your blog everyday. I also try to read the comments of other FP fanatics if I have the time. Your blog is very influential and I am writing you this letter hoping and praying that our appeal will be heard.
Our appeal is regarding the Board of Nursing's memo that the July 2011 Nursing Board Exam Passers will not be having the traditional mass oath taking ceremony. This is very disappointing for me because I am one of the July NLE board exam passers and knowing that I will not be able to experience this tradition gives me a heavy heart.
I believe that the Oath Taking Ceremony is a solemn event that should be experienced by new registered nurses because this is our time to make our parents proud by having them witness us taking the oath. This will also give them the feeling of fulfillment after all the hard work that they have gone through to send their children to the nursing schools.
We (new RNs) are aware of the country's economic condition, and the scarcity of job opportunities but depriving us of this experience would not solve it. Having the experience of seeing our parents proud is priceless. Money can be earned until the day we die.
I am hoping that the proper authorities could read this so that our appeal may be heard. Thanks FP and more power!
