Thesis Abstract "This research presents for the first time, the untold review stories of seven self-reviewees who passed the Philippine Nursing Licensure Examination (P.N.L.E.) on their first take. Despite the low passing percentage in the P.N.L.E. in the past decade, the study sought to answer possible reasons why some nurses conduct self-review, what did they do to pass, and most importantly, how did they do it. A multiple explanatory and exploratory case study was used to reveal the answers

What review strategies and techniques, if any, helped them pass the P.N.L.E.? 2.) What personal traits did these self-reviewees possess which helped them pass the P.N.L.E.? and 3.) What could be the marks of a P.N.L.E. self-reviewee board passer? The self-review stories of these seven board passers (and four additional who answered an email survey questionnaire for triangulation) were analyzed through within and cross case analyses. Fourteen self-review strategies emerged and seven self-review flow charts were culled from the analyses of the responses. As to the self-reported traits, self-confidence, self-discipline and determination to pass and finish the review were present in most of the participants. A discussion of the implications to the nursing licensure, their pedagogical implications to nursing education, and areas for further study are then presented. The study closes with a document titled "Marks of a Self-reviewee Board Passer", developed out of the case participants' stories, highlighting their review strategies, practical tips, and lessons learned to guide future self-reviewees in the P.N.L.E."
