I went to Capitol Medical Center a while ago to inquire, and at the same time pass the requirements if they are accepting applications for staff nurses. As stated from the previous post, only the initial ones are needed. I included the other requirements anyway. Yes, they accepted my application.
(For HD nurses only, with RENAP certification)
Then, next on my list was Hemotek located at U.N. Avenue. I asked the attending clerk if they are accepting applications from nurses and told me that they are currently on "freeze hiring" for their centers in Manila. However, they have openings for their provincial branches in Pampanga, Batangas and Cavite. She noted though that the salary rate for those in the provincial branches are "provincial rates". So I am assuming they are lower. She will be asking if you are already certified with RENAP and if you have updated BLS and IVT. Your experience will also be asked. Nonetheless, she accepted my photocopied credentials.
After that, I went to Alabang to check out if Asian Hospital is still entertaining applicants. I asked the security guard where the HR office is located so I can go straight there. He directed me instead in to the Information clerk as according to him, applications are to be collected by the information clerk. According to the one who received my papers, we can only go straight at the HR office if we are for interview or for an exam. He accepted my papers anyway. (Fingers crossed)
Asian Hospital and Medical Center really looks good! They have this piano at the lobby being played by a pianist (haha!) just like in SLMC's lobby. I really can't get over with the ambiance of the hospital, it's so sophisticated. However, it's sooooo far from where I live. grrr
On my way back, I was about to ride the LRT at Quirino station when I remembered that Nephrology Center of Manila is just nearby. So I decided to look for it and fortunately, I found it. With the last folder of requirements I have in hand, I asked the receiving clerk if they are accepting nurses for training (I believe they do not hire directly). According to him, the applicant must have an updated BLS and IVT. Fee for the training is Php 3000 for 3 months, but is refundable once the 3-month training is completed.
So there goes my itinerary/adventure/job-hunting for this day. I wish I have brought more than 4 sets of photocopied credentials. I didn't think I'll pass by some other big hospitals along the way so I brought just 4.
Passed by the following hospitals:
- University of Perpetual Help Medical Center
- Ospital ng Muntinlupa
- Alabang Medical Center
I wish I could share more but this is all for today.
To other Filipino nurses here, please don't try to be just leeches here, sucking some information while not trying to contribute what you know. Selfishness will get back at you. LOL. The mood's ruined. Sorry
May God bless us all. =)
