    the department of health (doh) today announced that applications can be filed starting next week, january 17, for its project where unemployed nurses will be deployed to poor communities in the country.

    "the project, billed rn heals, seeks to make essential health services available to all filipinos by training and deploying 10,000 unemployed nurses in communities to be identified by the doh in collaboration with the department of social welfare & development (dswd),"

    health secretary enrique ona said.
    rn heals, an acronym for registered nurses for health enhancement and local service, is expected to address the shortage of skilled and experienced nurses in 1,221 rural and unserved or underserved communities for one year.

    "eventually, these nurses will be part of the pool of competent nurses for later employment or absorption in health facilities, thus addressing the inadequate supply of skilled nurses and increasing the nurses' employment rate," the health chief concluded.
