    Really? Does this mean they have not yet completed the set of trainees they will be deploying next?

    For those who had their final interview last September 27, have you had your medical screening?

    HR told me that they have 25 staff nurse vacancies and out of the hundreds that applied, only 9 passed the process(as of last week of July).. I'm not sure though if they've reached the limit. But they are still accepting applicants.

    do they entertain RNs without experience? or it is required that you have at least volunteered for a few months in a hospital?
    Experience is not required. They accept applications of RNs with updated IVT, BLS and Board rating above 80%. Grab this opportunity for this is rare nowadays. Spread the word to help other nurses who are looking for jobs.
    You know how we are in our country; it's really difficult for us nurses. More importantly, don't lose hope. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place(Habakkuk 2:3). Ask our Heavenly Father and be expectant of His answer.

    oh. perhaps that number applies to those who had their final interview last July 27? Cause we had ours at mid-July and in our batch, only seven passed the process.

    I wonder....

    Thanks for the reply!

    thanks for the info and the encouraging words dhawii. I really do appreciate them especially now that im starting to lose hope. and by the way i tried reading back the old posts here and a post around 2009 stated that you need to show your ivt license for the hr to accept your application. well i only have my certificate with me since i just had my training last may. i know it should only take 3 months but until now its still unavailable according to the hospital i had my training with. so is this rule still applicable? or a certificate would be enough?

    I think what the HR meant there is they already have 25 nurses and they only need 5 more. They need 30 nurses all in all and according to the HR, they already have 20+...

    Yes, they got 9 nurses from the last batch, 7 from the previous batch... and I don't know how many from the first batch.

    Yes, i'm already done with the medical last August 5 and luckily passed. They will just send sms regarding the contract signing that's what the HR told us. The training will start this month. I heard that the first batch of trainees will end on August 15.

    hi folks! i just submitted my application as a staff nurse at csmc this morning. a guard at the hrd approached and asked me what position i'm applying for, and i told him that i'm applying for staff nurse position. he asked me the same questions just like the previous posts here like if i do have an updated bls, ivt, etc..and a board rating of 80%.. after those routine questions, he said that i could give him my application and he will be the one to submit it to the hr personnel, since the people there were busy doing and planning some renovations at their department. so, i agreed, and handled over him my application. then, i asked the guard to sign in his name, position date, time, and signature in my notebook as a proof that he received my resume and other pertinent documents attached to it (coz i'm sort of oc-oc). he said to wait for a call from hrd's office about the schedule of exam. i hope that they would consider my application. btw, when you say iq test, is it the same with logic exam or some sort of non-medical/ clinical questions? i am really excited and a lil' bit anxious about the type of exam, if ever i'm qualified to take that precious exam..

    you're welcome! i guess the certificate would be ok. just submit a photocopy of your id if you have it already. to be sure just call CSMC HR department.
