    Up! Up! Up! Guys for those who are currently enrolled in RN Heals 3, can you share your thoughts, experiences, tips and what not.

    My friend and I will go to NCMH on Wednesday to submit the requirements for RN Heals 4 but I am anxious about the exam, just so you know I got rejected by 2 hospitals just because of the qualifying exam. As someone who had gone through the screening process like the exam, interview etc., what best practices can you guys share? Thanks.

    Hi Captain, I thinK batch 5 simultaneously started with batch 4. batch 5 was specifically launched last year as the community setting counterpart of batch 4. The screening for the next batch this year would probably start early in September.

    I've watched this clip as well prior to pursuing my application for RN HEALS, although the interviewee pointed out some glitches in the program, the benefits are actually greater than the loop holes mentioned. I am not referring to he monetary incentives but the training and experience that you'll get in 12 months. If you are to choose between volunteering without any incentives and RN HEALS training, you would realize that this is far better because you will be receiving a guaranteed PHP 8,000 monthly...not to mention the possibility of getting absorbed in the hospital after the training (although the backer system in DOH hospitals is worst haha). Well consider your options wisely, if you can surely get into any hospitals without getting through any lengthy trainings as a staff nurse right away then it's better not to go for RN HEALS anymore.

    I have been part of RN HEALS batch 4 since January and although there are a lot of things I don't like that have been going on, I am more thankful because I have already learned a lot in terms of patient handling and performing various nursing responsibilities independently, dependently and interdependently.

    Hi, mikeru22 I'm planning to apply for the next batch of RNHeals this coming Oct/Nov 2013 (hospital setting). I just want to ask about your experience like did you went straight to NCMH to pass your requirements or to DOH office? What about the interview and exams? (****Tagalog removed per site terms of service****) Can you give a few examples like what topics? And also, it is true that you have a mentor throughout your training in the hospital?

    Sorry, (****Tagalog removed per site terms of service****) and I want to be prepared just in case :P

    THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCE

    Hey Veela! NCMH has the simplest screening process for RN HEALS trainees, the one and only screening process we went through was the Neuro Psychiatric Screening. It's a pen and paper test that consists of IQ, Aptitude, EQ and Behavioral exams. We paid P 350.00 for that and the next thing we knew the Personnel Department called us for our orientation.

    Each group of trainees has a respective mentor but that doesn't necessarily mean that your mentor will be with you in the ward where you are assigned to watch every move you make, most mentors are head nurses, nurse supervisors and assistant chief nurses who are very busy people. We are given the liberty to function just like a real staff nurse but with some restrictions specially when it comes to administering medications but as far as the ward routine, patient handling, inter-acting with Physicians, patient referrals, health teachings and apprehending the patients we feel like we are regular nurses already.

    Time flies really fast, I love what we do here because being a Psychiatric Nursing is really my dream job. In a couple of months the training would end and I feel like 1 year isn't enough. We just can't seem to get enough. The staff are mostly nice and helpful if not all and I love to be a part of this institution if given the chance in the future.

    Hmmm by the way I was told that we will be the last batch of RNHEALS. I wasn't really aware about it until my other group mate told me this just this morning.
