NLE Takers Beware of NOA 'Snatch-For-Ransom'

Unscrupulous individuals will do anything —fool, rob, or kill people— for a living. They will even do unusual undertakings just to earn money.

One of their uncommon acts is to snatch the Notice of Admission (NOA) of takers of the Nurses Licensure Examination (NLE). Reliable sources told us they’ve been warned against this modus operandi.

The advice came from people who were familiar with an incident that took place in 2009 in Manila where an NLE examinee was forced to pay the snatcher a sizeable amount of ransom money so he/she would be able to get his/her NOA back.

In the absence of a NOA, generally as it is an important requirement, a qualified applicant will not be allowed to take any licensure exam conducted by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).

The NLE is upcoming. Takers of the December nursing board exam must take proper precautions to prevent a similar incident from reoccurring.
