Cynthia Villar's answer to question about the Filipino nurses is now a record holder for accumulating millions of haters in just a minute. She is in real trouble and might affect her Senatorial candidacy big time. She irked a lot of Nurses for "generalizing them as a room nurse (caregiver)" on a debate question with only 30 seconds time limit which is “too short’” for her to explain further on the issue.
Mrs Villar's answer just showed that she has limited knowledge about the nurses working or migrated to other countries primarily as nurses and not just a "room nurse". Her carelessness in front of many viewers was offensive and insulting to the nurses who spent a lot of money and time studying, spending sleepless nights for 5 years just to earn a degree for a better life.
“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, ‘yong parang mang-aalaga. Hindi naman sila kailangan ganoon kagaling kasi sa ibang country.....”
Cynthia Villar insisted on twitter that she holds “the nursing profession in high regard.”
