Online Application for Board Examination Now in Tacloban

The Online Application System made waves in Tacloban today as nursing graduates of the St. Scholastica’s College successfully tested the new online system of submitting applications for the nurse licensure examination (NLE) on June 30 to July 1, 2012. St. Scholastica’s College was the first college in Tacloban to use the OAS following the launching of the system at the PRC-Tacloban office on May 6, 2012.

On the first day of the deployment of the OAS at the PRC-Tacloban office, two nursing graduates of the Western Leyte College of Ormoc City, Inc. submitted their applications through the OAS kiosk of PRC. Asked for comment on the OAS after securing their Notice of Admission, Rhona Q. Tabay and Ma. Eurina Anne C. Tapitan both said they were greatly satisfied with the OAS because the system has made the application process easier and faster especially for those who, like them, have to travel a great distance to apply for the nurse licensure examination. They vowed to inform their classmates of the benefits of the OAS. Both are shown holding their Notices of Admission with Director German Palabyab. Inset is the OAS testing at the St. Scholastica’s College.
