- May 2, '12 by vlademyrQuote from ichikohimeHi Ichikohime!!! I feel so blessed after reading all your words! Now Im so excited to work at MVMC even only a volunteer... thanks a lot in giving your time putting all your experience at MVMC... I wonder if your still working there maybe I can ask more from you when my duty starts... GodblessI just wanted to share my experience in MVMC while answering as many questions as possible.
MVMC is a tertiary hospital with 100 bed capacity. The facilities are very nice and modern, although sometimes it could be hot as hell (aircon is not yet centralized).
They are strict in the completeness of the requirements, although if you have to renew something like the PNA card, they would give you a deadline. I got a call from HR and took the exam with about 10 others. The exam was very hard, the computations were a mix between very basic and very complex, calculators not allowed. Not all the questions have answers. Me and my best friend took up the exam but I was the only one who got called for an interview.
After the exam there were 4 interviews that followed: theNursing Supervisors (nursing questions), the Chief Nurse (personal questions) the first question she asked me was "do you have a boyfriend?" haha which kinda floored me a little, but she was very kind, next is the Medical Director (nursing dilemmas), then finally the Hospital Director, he was in a hurry that day so all he got to ask was which school we were from. They also ask at the interviews which area would you like to be assigned and the experiences you had from previous hospitals.
After passing all of it, there are two weeks of lectures in which you will learn everything that was in the exam. Then 3 months duty; 1 month for special areas and 15 days for ward. Every volunteer gets the chance to rotate at a special area and a ward. The experience was very worth it. I know they would tell you in orientation that you can't do this and that, but I ended up doing most of them, just as long as you tell your senior about it. This was where I got good at IV insertion. I bursted 3 veins at the wards so I begged my supervisor to assign me at ER, by the end of my duty at ER I was able to insert for pedia patients
The 3 months volunteer is not only to enhance your nursing skills, but to prepare you for hiring as well. Besides the nursing work they will also teach you the administrative side to it, like how to fill up and manage the different forms.
Here are a few tips. Have the initiative. Granted the vitals signs taking will be given to you, but dont sit around waiting for somebody to order you around. Accompany the staff when they give medication, or do nursing procedures, and when the chance comes up ask them nicely if you can do it instead. When there's absolutely nothing to do, go do something, anything...Make cotton balls, cut medication cards, its not your duty and its not much but little things can help in big ways... and it makes you look good.
Also, stay away from gossip, dont **** off anybody, some doctors flirt, and it would surprise you that by tomorrow the whole hospital would know about it. (100bed capacity, so generally everybody knows everybody)
The batches before had night allowances, meaning you get paid 100 pesos for every night duty, so sometimes every 15 days you get to cash out 200-700 depending on how many night duties you have. Sadly, there isnt a night allowance anymore, the new batch had to pay 3000 (1k/mon) to volunteer. Sad
I would still recommend MVMC, I learned a lot, there is also a fast turn around, a month after we finished training 2 of my batchmates are already hired. Its really a good experience.
- May 2, '12 by vlademyrActually my application as a staff/trainee nurse at MVMC was totally unexpexted. This morning I went to "The Medical City" at meralco ave. Pasig to pass my resume, unfortunately they didnt accept my resume but instead they let me write my name, address and board rating in a form along with other applicants. Along our way home our car passedby in marikina and we saw this MVMC hospital... my father told me to pass my resume (since I have 9 extras haha! and theres no harm in trying).
When I went in HR Dept I saw their list of requirements in the frontdoor, and luckily its all in my bag (good thing I always bring my documents). After looking for a xerox machine and looking for a photo studio I immediately passed all my requirements on a folder. I was about to say thank you and leave when the HR gal told me to preapare for an exam... (I said to myself "exam?! wth i didnt review!" haha!). It was about 1pm when I took the exam and finished it at 3... and what can I say about the test?? damn its hard... especially the other half of computation! idk where to get the supposed to be given values! haha! then here comes the essay! *** watch out for ur grammar! and then the never ending abstract and bunch of logical mind twisting questions.... and dont forget the funny psych test hahaha i remember a question asking if I hear voices when im alone... as if im like a psycho...
When I finished the exam I was so eager to go home to change my clothes since its so hot in the spot where I took the exam. Same scenario I was again about to leave when the HR girl told me that I should wait for an interview. What? interview? I dont even know what questions will be asked... zzzz... ok ive waited and then the interview started, she asked me to explain bunch of cases... luckily I was able to answer haha! afterwards she told me that I should comeback on friday for another interview and that I should be in a formal attire.
And all those things happened in just 1day... on the spot exam and interview... but its worth it! now all I have to do is pass all the other interviews... What I can say about all the personnel in MVMC??? they're all accomodating and kind!!! I wish all hospitals are like them haha!
To all those who are planning to apply in MVMC and other hospitals... one piece of advice... dont forget to PRAY!!! u dont know when the opportunity will come... always ask for guidance... and pass as many resume as possible haha! anyways I just passed my NLE last Dec2011 so im just a fresh grad like most of u... goodluck to us!
- Jun 4, '12 by zhirepotRNhi vlademyr, just wanna ask are you done with your application at MVMC? how was it and how many interviews did u have?
- Jul 18, '12 by shinbihope this helps..
> new staff nurses (hired) will be selected from the pool of nurses who graduated from the training program. meaning, one must first undergo the training program before she/he can become an MVMC staff nurse.
>MVMC ensures that all nurse trainees are equipped with all the trainings needed to render safe and quality patient care (hence the BLS/ALS/IVT trainings and other requirements)
>Nursing exam for applicants undergo constant revision so as to avoid possible test leakage
>There are no specific questions for the interview. Questions are formulated during the interviewer/interviewee interaction. You can say that the questions are "personalized" and will depend on the extent of the applicant's nursing experience. The interviewer would like to know if the applicant can deliver safe and quality patient care during his/her training period.
>lastly, the trainee's attitude plays a vital role in his/her evaluation. Assertiveness and having the strong initiative to learn will surely help you earn points.
>good luck everyone!
>p.s. MVMC staff are indeed warm and approachable.. hahaha
