Cynthia Villar Room Nurse Comment: 'Pagsubok Ng Mga Kandidato' Interview Transcript

Below is the transcript of senatorial candidate Cynthia Villar's answers to Winnie Monsod's questions during the February 23 episode of GMA News TV's "Pagsubok ng mga Kandidato."

Winnie Monsod: "Noong kayo po ay nasa Kongreso, kayo ay naging chairman ng Committee on Education, at noong panahon na iyon, 2005-2006, nagkaroon ng malaking kontrobersya... kasi yung Comission on Higher Education gustong isara ang 23 nursing schools sapagkat ang dami dami nilang walang kalidad, at tsaka nasasayang lang yung pera ng mga nursing students tapos hindi sila makapasa ng professional regulatory exam or yung tinatawag na NCLEX. Nung ginawa ito ng CHED, mukhang nag-intervene po ang kongreso... sa iyo, yung Committee on Education at humihingi kayo ng dialogue. Ang bottom line is that walang nasara na eskwela. And as a result, nag-resign po si Chairman Fr. Rolando Dela Rosa, nag-resign ang buong technical committee on nursing education. Ngayon, ang question ko, it seems nag-side po kayo sa side ng business, sa mga owners ng school. At tsaka hindi niyo pinakinggan 'yung mga kailangan magawa para sa mga nursing students na nawalan na ng pera, hindi naman sila pwedeng pumasa. Now how, Cong. Villar, can you reconcile itong parang seeming disconnect between 'yung desire ninyo to help the poor at tsaka 'yung pagpanig niyo sa mga owners ng mga educational institutions na gustong isara ng technical nursing committee at tsaka 'yung CHED?"

Cynthia Villar: "Maraming salamat, Mareng Winnie. I want to explain that situation to you. Hindi naman ganoon ang istorya noon. Ang nangyari noon, binigyan nila ng permit yung mga schools to open, ng CHED... Tapos gusto nila ipasara, nakapag-invest na yung mga may-ari ng schools sa mga kanilang facilities. And then, sinasabi nila na kaya daw nila gustong ipasara dahil walang tertiary hospital, kasi sa mga nursing school to, na where they can train. Ang sinasabi namin noon, hindi naman po kami kumokontra sa CHED, ang sinasabi namin, kasi tinignan namin 'yung syllabus, yung mga courses na kunin nila, and then nakita namin na after lang sa third year kailangan nila yung tertiary hospital so ni-request namin na hindi nalang ipasara yung pre-nursing, 'yung first two years..."

Winnie Monsod: "Follow-up question nalang po ano, ha? Ay kung ganoon pala ang istorya, bakit bumaba pa ang mga nurses na-employ sa abroad, kasi hindi sila qualified? In other words, if it's only a matter of investment, bakit po hindi sila ma-employ employ? At bakit po nag-resign ang technichal nursing education committee, at tsaka nag-resign after only 7 months in office? Do you think they just did not understand?"

Cynthia Villar: "No, yung pag-reresign po ni [Fr. Rolando V De la Rosa] is a personal quarrel with the owner of a school. Medyo personal po yun. Pero yung amin po, ay sinasabi po namin sa kanila na actually, hindi naman kailangan ang nurse ay matapos ng BSN kasi itong ating mga nurses, gusto lang nila maging Room Nurse. Sa America or sa other countries, ano lang sila, 'yung parang mang-aalaga. Hindi naman sila kailangan ganoon kagaling kasi sa ibang country..."

Cynthia Villar, you are so stupid... Don't start talkin' about nurses if you haven't got any idea about what we do... I think you are the uneducated one, maybe you just bought your diploma in Recto... :-P

walang respeto sa mga nurses. i think she just entered politics with an empty brain.

Your ignorance idea about education in nursing is completely unacceptable. You should be ashamed of your self on how you described nurses as low profile.to become a nurse here in abroad you need to be educated with high professional qualification. We're very upset That nurses was been degraded by one of our Filipino countryman in the person of Cynthia villar . Your Uneducated words about nurses touches the heart of every medical profession .goodluck on election hope people of the phils realise who are they voting for,are they highly educated with excellent qualification? No

kaka-disappoint ah. Gaya na nga ng kinatatakutan ng marami, ang maraming tumatakbong kandidato ay wala naman talagang malasakit sa mga mamamayang Pilipino. How can they help the poor gayong sila mismo ang nangmamaliit sa mga nagsisikap nating kababayan. They're just after the power and the privilege that came with being a politician. Gusto kasi nila, magkakapamilya silang politiko para mas maging makapangyarihan sila.

Halatang matapobre etong c Mrs. Villar.. Use your coconut shell before saying something. Mas maganda cguro mag aral ka muna ng nursing para mlaman mo kng madali lang yun. HYPOCRITE....

Napaka boba pala nyan. Yan ba ang mga dapat manalo sa senado? Isip isip tayo mga pinoy?

"bakit bumaba pa ang mga nurses na-employ sa abroad, kasi hindi sila qualified?" >>napakaraming hiring sa middle east for nurses. ayaw lng nla mag apply kac takot cla sa mga nasasagap nla na mga negative na balita which is not true nman.. middle east countries are safe to employ.. lahat ng nurses sa pinas are highly qualified sa abroad. actually ang mga pinoy ang pinakamagaling sa ibang bansa..

Villar: "hindi naman kailangan ang nurse ay matapos ng BSN kasi itong ating mga nurses, gusto lang nila maging Room Nurse. Sa America or sa other countries, ano lang sila, 'yung parang mang-aalaga. Hindi naman sila kailangan ganoon kagaling kasi sa ibang country..." >> wrong statement ka Villar, dapat maging proud ka sa mga OFW lalo na sa mga nurses kac sila ung nagpapasok ng $$$ sa Pinas.. hindi kurso ang basehan d2 kundi ung kalidad ng trabaho at galing ng utak which is kelangan un sa ibang bansa pra makapag communicate at magawa ng mahusay ung trabaho.. d pa ata nkapag abroad 2 c Cynthia Villar kaya d nya alam ang sinasabi nya..

Excuse me Mrs. Cynthia Villar. Pilipino ka pa man din tapos ganyan ka magsalita sa mga kababayan mo! Try to study BS Nursing ewan ko lang kung hindi mo maranasan ang madalas na pagpupuyat at madalas wala pang tulog sa pagrereview na ke kapal kapal na mga libro pati paggawa ng mga case studies. Maswerte ka pagnatapos ka ng nursing. Did you know what are you saying? My father is a caregiver in States and i'm proud of that. My father told me that most nurses in the hospital in States are filipinos especially the head nurse. Hindi kami nagsunog ng kilay, nag aral ng 4yrs at nagreview ng 2 months para lang maliitin ng ISANG TULAD MO! Sa daming nurses here in pinas pati families and relatives GOODLUCK nalang kung IBOTO ka namin!

Tanga lang ang may ganuong belief at duon ka nagkamali ng pagsagot. Tini-testing ka lang ni Winnie eh bumigay ka na agad. Yan tuloy, nabisto ka. Mahigit na 1M na ang botanteng Nurses ngayon. BTW, magdamit ka naman ng ma-ayos sa susunod mong interview. Di hamak na mas postura pa ang mga Care givers na kilala ko compare to you.

think first before u speak.....halata kc na wala kang alam mrs. villar....kaya mabuti pa wag ka nlang kumandidato.

Miss Cynthia Villar, let you know nurses here in the States are well respected. I finished my masters and doing my doctoral in nursing in one of the respected university here. Proud to tell you I got my BSN from Philippines. What you have just said just showed how dumb and ignorant you are. I feel so sad sa mga kababayan ko if they have this kind of idiots running the Senate.

my gosh deary, wag ka nalang umasa na may bumoto pa sayong mga nurses at tsaka student nurses. i had you as one of my possible candidates because of your hanepbuhay platforms. but upon hearing your new "platform" i was so abashed by your comment. hahahahaha. your picture on your campaign ads are so annoying. day, wala kang kilay sa pics mo!!!!! pwd bang bumili ka ng eyebrow pencil na black????

i think villar did not mean it in a negative way. let us all pity her. maybe she lost her small brain on the way to the interview. but please DON'T VOTE FOR HER.

Anonymous,  March 3, 2013 at 9:23 PM  

I guess ang gusto nya tumbukin sa sagot nya is yung mga caregiver at practical nursing na d kailangan bsn grad na wrong use of words lang sya, at cguro sa time pressure. ganun pa man marami nasaktan kc nagkaroon agad ng wrong interpretation o kanya kanyang interpretation bawat nakapanood. Anyway nasa democratic tayo kaya respect na lang sa bawat opinion.

She said na na-"time-pressured" lang sya that's why she said those things.. but to think about it, it was a fairly easy question to answer compared to the many more controversial questions that she may encounter IF ever she's elected as a senator.. A good senator should think on her toes at all times and should be ready and alert to give out APPROPRIATE responses to questions thrown at her...yung mga tipong TACTFUL at CRITICAL mag isip ang mga dapat nating iboto.. because we don't need anymore of those mga puro "pasikat" lang na officials, we should get yung mga may BRAINS to actually represent our country. Imagine if this woman gets elected, and if by whatever reason she gets asked by some foreign dignitary some out-of-the blue questions about us FILIPINOS, and she happens to give out mga "TACTLESS" responses, these could actually compromise our dignity and how we are viewed by the rest of the world. WE NEED SMART LEADERS. Those who can actually level off with other international dignitaries and not just someone na mismong tayong mga kababayan nya eh minamaliit nya. No matter how much her ads keep repeating kung gaano sya KABAIT or mapag-unawa sa mga "pangangailangan ng mga kababayan" nya, but kung sa simpleng tanong lamang na ganun eh bistadong mapanghusga pala sya, it is just as clear as DAY LIGHT na she does not have the makings of a good politician, let alone be one that would potentially REPRESENT the filipino people.DI naman kasi porket MAYAMAN ka eh dapat tumakbo ka ng posisyong para ma-maintain ang yaman mo. I think her response is quite very obvious na as a business tycoon herself, she is "pro" sa mga business people.. and di man lang nya naisip na to sum up yung mga nagastos ng mga nursing students sa studies nila for 4 years ay even more than how much those owners ng school invested. HAIST!! kung manalo pa yan, EWAN KO NALANG TALAGA..it's like having our own version of a HILLARY CLINTON sa senate.. kaya nga lang at least si HILLARY may TACT. eh xa? simpleng question lang na "time-pressured pa?" pwe! ang liit lang ng challenge na yan compared sa kung anong mahaharap saiyo sa senado...kaya if you have any dignity left to proceed with your campaign, atleast ADMIT that you made a mistake and STOP MAKING EXCUSES!

To Mrs. Villar your 'sorry' is not enough after degrading us Nurses. Ur brainless talaga! Filipino nurses all over the world are Heroes. Mataas ang respeto ng iba sa amin tapos ikaw sa tingin m Room Nurse lang kami. Mas maigi po wag mo ng ituloy ang candidacy mo kc talo k n!

ano ka? pag nagkamali at nabuking parang si gloria ..' I am sorry' ..

gzel,  March 4, 2013 at 6:33 PM  

Kung pagiging room nurse man ang start nmen sa ibang bansa wla namang kaso dun ah,..next time na lalabas ka for interview mrs.villar be extra careful in picking words that your going to say. .and remember NURSING is a vocation. .It is not a simple course para sabihin mong hindi namen kailangang magtapos ng BSN..

jude au March 5, 2013 at 6:57 AM  

may time limit man or wala.. i think that question can be answered in way na hindi makakhurt nang ibang tao..its simply shows that you are not competent in the senate..konting time pressure lang, nagkamali ka ng bongang-bonga..you should have chosen your words more carefully despite the time pressure..Mabuti nlng at makakaboto na ako..im so excited NOT to vote you..

Andoi Catz March 9, 2013 at 6:41 PM  

What's with comparison with Hillary. She's a brilliant lawyer, a dignified Secretary of State and an accomplished politician. Villar doesn't come close at all.
