Nurses still awaiting exam results

Unpaid fees to the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) are to blame for nursing students not receiving their results for an important exam they sat in October.

The Regional Examination for Nursing Registration is administered by CXC to schools with nursing programs throughout the Caribbean. This exam determines who qualifies to be a registered nurse.

But while students in other Caribbean islands got their results—as scheduled—in mid-November, students in Trinidad and Tobago are still waiting.

New driver's permit from tomorrow

A new driver’s permit will be launched tomorrow, Friday.

According to a release from the ministry of works and transport, the new permit comes with enhanced security features and is expected to greatly improve service delivery and procedures at the licensing divisions in the country.

At present drivers, licenses are renewed for five years.

It has not been stated what the cost of this new drivers license would be or whether there would be changes to the present issuance structure.
