    I completely agree with you john83.

    State funded universities like PLM and UP are covered by that law. I read about that law when i was visiting the PLM website. That congresswoman should know the law more than we do. Is she not ashamed of what is coming out from her mouth. Still, she considers herself a LAWmaker huh. Anyway, you are right john83. She should ask the executives first to implement that law. How can she even think of extending the mandatory service when the current service required for government nursing students are not being implemented well.

    It would be ok for me to do a patriotic service as long as it is very reasonable and feasible. I don't care extending my hardships for another three years as long as I am sure that it could help our country and our fellow Filipinos.

    I wish I have an immunity for speaking what i want too just like her so that I can tell her publicly how she made a non-sence, irrational, unscientific statement. That is all I can say for now. I may not be able to hold myself. Thank john83 for reminding me about that law.
    Hi omniverseking!

    Thanks for supporting my post. Hehe, maybe she just forgot, so let us ask her advisers or her personally to check it out.

    You are very patriotic and laud you for that.

    There are many ways to help our country and it shouldn't be limited to this. It seems that they are doing the "shotgun strategy" in an attempt to provide immediate solutions. But then again, like diseases, there is no one cure pill for all. Each solution to a problem must be carefully planned and thought of.

    I understand how you feel...I think the best way is to make it known to her personally and I believe, there are "election talks" going on in some places and perhaps this topic should be suggested. There are many people who do not carefully choose their candidates/representatives, hence, these things occur.
    You're welcome omniverseking!

    Perhaps you can also talk it out with your nurse/nursing friends, and then come to her office as a group. Or you can also ask support from the PNA. The most important thing to do is to pray. Always include God in your affairs/endeavors.:angel2:

    I am sorry to post some of my off topic messages. I notice that you're from Bacolod City. Which hospital are you working now? Actually I am not yet a RN nor a BSN student. I am just considering studying BSN this summer as a second course. I am a Bacolodnon too. I got my AB Pol Sci there four years ago.In your suggestion about joining nursing activism, I guess I will just have to pass from it hehe. I am sorry to get you disappointed. I am one of those sick and tired people here in the Philippines haha. I have major reasons for taking a BSN. Those are the chance of working abroad and help my family financially, to be with my family in the US, to practice a profession not directly involved in politics, and also to get away with the current political and economic disaster here in the Philippines.I also think that the bill will not be passed as a law (please not, haha). So many solons are against of that bill also. I guess when the time comes when it is necessary for us to lobby against it, then you can count me in. For now, I will just have to observe the issue and prepare for my studies. Thank you for giving me an insight. Its nice to hear an advice from a fellow Bacolodnon.

    Just send me a PM(private message) after this one.

    I'm still in the process of returning to nursing work. Hehe, good to hear from a fellow Bacolodnon indeed!:icon_hug:

    I understand, I believe that the one of the reasons why many Filipinos want to emigrate.:mortarboard:

    Yes, hopefully not. The best way would be to disseminate this info and the repercussions of that bill as much as we can.:smilecoffeecup:

    God bless! Hope to see you someday as a colleague in the nursing profession!
