    Please be mindful of posting “target dates” especially if you’re not going to be confident in accomplishing it. These are future professionals you are addressing to, their time is just as valuable as yours. The least you can do is inform the masses if there would be a delay, so as to not keep them waiting. Para kang nagpa stand by for duty the entire day, tapos sasabihan kang off ka nalang after the entire day has passed.

    Ako ang napapahiya sa mga comments ng mga NLE takers. Sana sabihan na lang sila ng specific date of release tutal delayed na so more or less ilabas niyo na lang sa specific date na ibibigay niyo pa lang kung sakali para naman hindi na mapupuyat ang mga batang ito kakaabang sa result na walang exact date of release. Future nurses po sila. Professionals. Please treat them fairly at huwag na dagdagan pa ng more pagpupuyat kasi from date of exam pa sila stressed out na. Ilan siguro nagkakaroon na ng anxiety.

  • Asar Yan Dec 2, 2023 @ 19:24

    Wala nang pag asa na lalabas ang result today or tomorrow, ksi maging katwiran nila is non-working day. So, antabayanan nlng natin on Monday.
