    Good Luck & God Bless PGNT Batch 5!
    We're like 80+ in batch 5. And 70+ from batch 4 are still on phase 3. We are all aiming for positions, but are there really slots for these hopeful nurses? Desperate. :/

    Do the HR prioritize 2011 graduates? I'm a new board passer. I passed my requirements first week of oct, no feedback then. T_T

    after the didactic phase, you will be given a certificate of attendance. then after the ojt phase, you will be given a certificate of completion of training.

    Hi to all, I am new here. I just want to ask if when you successfully finished the 1 month training, are you going to be given a certificate of training? After that 1 month of training what happens next, can we still proceed to another months of training? Do we still have to take another exam and interview again for the next new training? Thanks

    Good Day kayern07.
    So you mean that after 'passing' the program, they will consider you to be their staff nurse then proceed to the next level or just for manpooling? is there someone in the previous batch that are already working as a nurse? or there still a lot on the shortlist waiting for their turn?

    For my own opinion, its kinda frustrating even after you trained, paid all the program, spent money everyday, and passed, after all, theres no assurance for you to be hired...

    thank you everyone! all my respect for those in the PGNT! i salute you!
    Hi mrjoey! Yes. After passing the program, the medical, and the requirements needed by the HR. All of those who qualified from the previous batches are already walking as staff nurses. Our batch is just having some inhouse training/seminars before being deployed in our areas respectively. As for the batch after us, they are informed that their hiring date will be on January 2013. That I don't know. Maybe because SLMC will have to go JCIA accreditation on November.

    Everyone was told during the interview that there is no assurance to get hired but where are they now, they're working already.

    In our batch and with the 2 previous batches, after being able to pass the PGNT, medical, all the requirements needed by the HRD, we will be having different seminars before being a staff nurse so I can say its not for manpooling.

    However, the batch after us is having a different case. After passing their PGNT specifically phase 3, I think they will have a vacation first in order for SLMC to prepare for the upcoming JCIA accreditation.They would always tell trainees that they don't have an assurance (even with batch 1). But as what I can see, trainees who passed before us are already working as staff nurses (probationary).

    Hi Guys! just wanna thank everyone who posted here especially those who answered my questions. This thread is really helpful for all of us who wants to be part of the PGNT. And I can say that I owe it to you that I'm part of batch 4 because the info that you all posted here indeed helped me decide to submit an application. Just wanna share my experience... I submitted my resume on July 31st and was texted the same day to report for the initial screening the day after. We took the IQ test and after was interviewed by one of the HR staff. I don't know but for me, it seemed like the interview was just a sort of formality rather than a screening. It looks like once you passed the IQ test, most likely you are already accepted as long as you are able to answer the questions in English decently. Because the questions are just about your resume and your family. I was expecting more challenging questions (I had interviews in Call center companies previously and they asked you questions which will really test you critical thinking and communication skills). I might be wrong though, but as long as you can explain your answers clearly in English, you should pass that interview. We were told that we made it 3 pm of that same day and were asked to attend the orientation on Friday. I was really surprised by the # of nurses who were there. I was not expecting the group to be that big. We were 90+ who attended and say perhaps 10-15 decided not to continue the final group will still have at least 70-80 members. Well I guess the more the merrier. One more thing, looks like they have not decided yet whether they will still have batch 5 again because of the huge turnout for Batch 4. But for those of you who wants to apply just submit your resume still. Submit it directly to the manpower office not to the guard on the employee entrance (You have better chances because your application might be processed right away). Enter thru the main lobby so you can go straight to the office in B1. Godbless us all nurses!

    Will an exam be given on the "initial screening day"? I just recently received a text message that I am for an interview and it says that is for an initial screening.
    Hi Sunsetjace! I also just got a text message from slmc gc this afternoon. I would just like to ask if the message you got says that they would like you to consider for Staff Nurse position and inviting you for initial screening?

    Also, cheezy_curls can you remember around how many hours will this initial process takes?

    This thread is very informative and I've been following this since I passed my resume in SLMC GC. I'm hoping and praying really hard that this is for me.

    Hi guys! You can do some backreading to know more about the PGNT program.

    As you all know, there are 3 phases. It will be discussed on your first day. Might as well wait for what the trainers will tell you because they might revise or change the program. Our batch is some kind of an experimental one. They might use the old ways, we'll never know. For now, congratulations to those who were initially screened and passed, and to those waiting for the SMS the HRD will send, good luck! Prayers can move mountains anyway. I hope we'll bump with each other soon!

    PS:
    Just a tip, you must possess the right attitude because it is one of the biggest factors in passing the program. Know thy limitations, be humble and always maintain your dignity. Cheers!

    I entered SLMC GC from the Patient's Parking Area, Basement 2, maybe that is the reason why I was able to directly get there at the Manpower Planning and Staffing Office located at Basement 1.
    Luckily I was the only applicant for PGNT that afternoon.

    As much as possible, go at their office directly so they can process your application right away.

    Hello,

    I went this afternoon to SLMC-GC at Manpower Planning and Staffing Office located at Basement 1 to submit my resume and a copy of my board rating certificate.
    Right then and there I was given an application form to fill out then they gave me a 15-minute written exam.
    After waiting for about 10 minutes for the result, they called me up in the waiting area for the interview with the HR specialist.
    I waited for another 10 minutes for them to be able to evaluate my application.
    Then they told me that I am qualified to become PGNT.
    The HR assistant requires me to bring my requirements on Friday 20 July.

    Just go there and submit your resume. God bless everyone!
    wow! congrats ma'am! may i know ur board rating ma'am? how did you get at the Manpower and staffing office? i thought we are only allowed to pass our credentials outside at the guard beside ER i think.
