In an interview on ANC’s Headstart, Bello clarified that he’s merely proposing for the relevant regulators to study the possibility of abolishing licensure exams before a person can enter a particular profession.

My proposal is for the Philippine Nurses Association (PNA) and Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) to study it. I didn’t propose scrapping. I’m not proposing to scrap, I’m proposing especially to the, to Philippine Nurses Association and Board of Nursing to study and that applies to others, [such as] Board of Engineering na pagaralan nilang mabuti,” Bello said.

Bello also reiterated that a student had already undergone rigorous scrutiny during his or her years of studying. According to Bello, he would rather trust the product of an eight-year course than a one-day exam.

Moreover, Bello said that most nursing students were from low to middle-income families and adding the cost of preparing for the board exam was another financial burden.

Bello’s clarification came after he raised the idea of doing away with board and Bar exams.

Sabi ko, Pag-aralan ‘nyo ‘yan and then we can recommend to Congress na tanggalin na ‘yang exam-exam na ‘yan.’ Gastos sa ating nurses na nakuha na ang pag-aaral na kailangan nila, eh puwede na mag-practice. Pero depende pa rin ‘yan, dahil under law ay dadaan dapat,” Bello said  in a media briefing last Wednesday.
