    Yes, St. Luke's will charge you P3900 for cash and P4200 for installment for training fee and the training will last for 3 months.. you will be "graded" during the training, it's like a "classroom" type of training wherein there will be return demos and lectures of basic procedures. This training fee will be reimbursed monthly for 3 months once you're employed in the institution. Before you pay the training fee, you will undergo an exam which is IQ type of exam, after passing it you will be interviewed by the HR.. after passing the HR interview, you will be scheduled for the panel interview. I haven't experienced this panel interview because I backed out after knowing the amount of training fee and the length of time for the training. The HR will orient you on this after you pass the HR interview, so I backed out.

    On Delos Santos, as far as I know, you will not be asked for a training fee.. they will train you without a fee... yes they are hiring.

    I think it is the hospital's tactics to ask for "training fees" since they know that nursing graduates and new licensed nurses are after the experience for the chance to work abroad. We can't do anything but to comply and to pay, if not, we won't be able to get the experience we're looking for and the work we want. That's sad news! well, they're making business and money out of us and they're riding on the popularity of nursing.

    This is sad but this has been happening for a long time. Also, hospitals already know how many slots can be hitred and they keep accepting "trainees" knowing that only a select few can be accomodated.

    You can get petitioned even w/o work exp. if I may add but you won't get it from agencies in the Phil. They will always say you need so and so exp.

    you should have attended the interview conducted by the Children's Hospital of New Orleans last wed and thurs at the Hyatt Hotel in Manila.

    they selected 2 nurses from the june 2006 passers and were given offers of $23/hour.

    who said there was no hope for the june 06 passers...

    Even if they got the job, they won't be able to get the Visa Screen certificate, will they? Without that, they can't get a visa.

    wow thanks ANN-RN.. I can't imagine paying for training which will not be recognized anyway by US hospitals..I was THIS close to dropping my resume in the pigeon hole!! I mean if it's not really necessary anyway I think I may just skip the experience here in the PI and just go through the new grad RN programs that some US hospitals are offering. It's unbelievable how much money nurses spend just to get experience and more unbelievable how hospitals make out of this opportunity.. oh well as some people will say.. WAYGD?? (what r u gn do?)

    BTW those 2 June 06 passers are lucky! and this was direct hiring right? Good God I wish I knew that they were coming to the PI I could have been there and I could bring some friends!! Please message me for upcoming events like these.. thanks!!

    go on with your life, let them government worry about what other steps they need to take to safeguard leakfree board. if you passed the board you should consider taking the nclex instead of the cgfns (though it entails more expenses as you have to travel to take the exam). different states have different expiration dates. i am only aware of CA with 3 yrs expiration. i guess before your license expires you would have found an employer already. goodluck....

    Again, the question remains...

    how will get the visascreen if the CGFNS just defers your application.

    VS is required by federal law to have a visa.

    That is the problem for all of the June test takers. CGFNS/ICHP is the only organization that grants the Visa Screen Certificate, no other way to get one without getting it from there.

    We have stated over and over again, that the test be repeated. It could have been done in December and you would have had your results already and could go on with your lives.

    CGFNS still has not come out with an official word, but they keep stating over and over again that things need to be done as they are in the US, and that means a retake of the exam for everyone, not a few sections and not just be a few people.

    The choice is yours. But if the dream is to work in the US, suggest that you retest. Most facilities here will not even consider you based on that exam, and especially in California where most wish to work. The exam issues are very well known here.

    Are you among passers of the June nursing exam?

    According to a report, Dec. 2006 board takers include those who failed to pass the previous exam and about 1,200 others who had been ordered by the Court of Appeals to retake the test following allegations of a leak in the June board.
