    Hi Guys! If you're still having a hard time applying at hospitals, you could trying applying at Eye Centers like Asian Eye Institute. They have an open position for clinic nurse there so if you have any ophtha experience, i suggest you pass at one of their branches either in rockwell, SM MOA or Trinoma. It would be a plus if you also know how to operate different ophthalmic machines. Good Luck!

    Hi theweirddebonair! I applied at UPHSD Medical Center (Perpetual Help Hospital) in Las Pinas. After 2 days of passing, I received a message to take an exam. They informed me that I passed and 3 days after, I was scheduled for a panel interview and Psych exam. Then I was recommended for the New Graduate Development Program / training, which will be starting tomorrow.

    The program is like that of St. Luke's, where we will go 1 month didactic training (lecture), 2 months practicum, and evaluated right after. If we passed their evaluation, we will be promoted to probationary status with salary. The HR assistant said that out of 80 applicants we were down to 20.

    I also applied at so many hospitals and dialysis centers here in Metro Manila, but they are all still backlogged on the applicants. I wanted to apply at St. Lukes QC, but they told a friend that they are the last batch to be interviewed for the first half of 2012, so I did not go anyway. Luckily The HR at Perps processed my application quickly even if I don't have a backer.
    Wow, that was fast. Congratulations! Good Luck to you. Hope you'll get absorbed.

    I'm not entirely sure, because our batch just started today. It might take some time before the next batch starts. They did tell us that in order to qualify for the program, you have to have a board rating of at least 80%, have good english communication skills, pass the nursing aptitude test and pass the interview.

    It was fast in my case, since I was included in the last applicants before closing this batch. I hope so too, upon reviewing their program with the OIC we realized that the burden is a bit hard for some of us. To be able to be promoted to probationary rank (we are now in "trainee rank"), we have to be able to safely and efficiently handle 10 patients each per day without any issues. Aside from examinations and evaluations that are somewhat elimination in nature. Once you are probationary, you are officially hired.

    They said the last training batch started with 20 trainees, and only 3 were hired. I really need to study.

    I suggest you undergo Hemodialysis training after you have a 6 months experience at least, so that you can take an exam already with RENAP. In my case, I had my hemo training after my IVT and BLS, but since I am training in a hospital right now I have to take a refresher course when I decide to pursue hemodialysis.

    Thanks for the response. Can you pm me the contact number of this hospital. As far as i can remember, i called every hospital in metro manila last January. I'm not quite sure if I have called this hospital. . Kindly pm me the contact number. I'll try to call them. Thanks again.

    The best thing to do actually is to just pass your resume at any hospital you pass by. Bring photocopies of the usual requirements such as TOR, diploma, board certificate, PRC license. If you already passed your resume at that particular hospital and it has been a year or so, you can resubmit again in case they are for hiring.

    Instead of waiting at home for calls, you can try to attend seminars or even specialised trainings so you can improve your resume as well as your personal knowledge and skills. I underwent BLS, IVT, and Hemodialysis trainings while waiting for a call. Right now I finished my panel interview and I am up for a pre-employment training at a tertiary hospital.

    During the interview, they did ask how I spent my time post-graduation, since it has been almost a year after graduation and 6 months after they released the 2011 NLE results. I said I continued to enrich myself and pursue career growth while waiting for the big break, and they recommended me to be included in their pre-employment training (free) and up for evaluation.

    It is costly and hard on the wallet to apply, but the wait is well worth it.
    hey Miss Caisaki, thanks for all the info... but can I still pass my resume if I only got a claim stub of my lisence? I'm still waiting 'til May 12 before I can actually claim my PRC lisence... Im about to finish my IVT training at RMC this coming March 29-31... and hopefully my BLS and ECG this 1stweek of april... and is it also true that hospitals asking for resume only (w/o photocopies of credentials) has no or little assurance of being hired... thank you in advance.

    Hi nash11, I don't know the contact number of the HR as we only passed our credentials personally. They have a SMS number which they use for informing everyone about schedules, exams, notifications and updates, but that number does not accept replies and is similar to Globe or Smart text advisories like 2346. They actually prefer personal appearances opposed to calls.

    vlademyr, I'm not really sure regarding the claim stub, but some hospitals/institutions like Perpetual Help Medical Center and Philippine Kidney Dialysis Foundation accepts a certificate of board passing / certificate of board rating in lieu of the license if not available yet. I make it a point to search for the list of requirements for the hospitals, and so far I have not encountered a hospital that only asks for a resume. If ever they ask for the resume only, you have to make sure that your other credentials are listed there such as memberships with ID numbers and expiry dates, trainings attended, and other important documents.

    It doesn't necessarily mean there is little assurance, they just don't want to be flooded with too many papers when they screen out qualified applicants. Thus, your resume MUST be a good summary of all your credentials.

    St. Luke's Medical Center QC - freeze hiring as of last week.

    Cardical Santos Medical Center - (second hand info only) accepting applications, but applicant must have at least 6 months exp (I don't know if paid exp or volunteer will do) from a tertiary hospital, IVT and BLS/ACLS license.

    The Medical City - logging on the sheet in the HRD is the first step. They'll contact you if you meet their initial screening requirements. Probably based on your board rating and reputation of school where you came from. That is because that's the only information that they'll be asking you to log other than your name, contact number and from what batch (08, 09, 10, etc.)
