    You may give it a shot just as long as you go there on contact lens. I had an exam there before as i was referred by my aunt who's working there to take the exam a way, way back 2009. I went off with my eyeglasses on, took the exam. I passed the exam according to my aunt. Only that I couldn't continue because of my visual acuity which was 175 back then (now it's higher than that).

    What would be the chances if you are already a Reserve Force 2nd Lt. when you join the nurse corps? Assuming you are also a registered nurse by profession?

    Anyone?

    I am a Nurse Corps Officer...regarding your inquiry on being a Flight nurse..sorry but you have to be in the Nurse Corps before applying or being chosen for that position. You need to be in the service for a few years before being trained in PAF. There are about 1-2 slots open for us every 3-5 years only...so, if you want the opportunity..apply in the NC first.

    hmm....the palakasan system...oh no dear, we don't really have much of that in the NC...I knew of applicants who are sons/daughters of generals and the likes...but if they did not pass the exam and the series of interviews they're out..
    we apparently need to get endorsed by a military officer or an enlisted personnel so that someone makes sure that our papers are being processed..YES, having someone you know from the inside is a big help but it's not completely the basis of you being accepted..upon taking the exam, it will take you about 5 interviews and a number or exams/tests that you need to pass before you are appointed for training..that will take you about 1 1/2 - 3 years of waiting...

    But of course the waiting is worth it... gross salary of about 32k..net salary 24k plus benefits..magna carta.. upon entry for training, you get to take home about 28k every month.. and you get to travel around the Philippines..although, it's really not an easy job

    I have batchmates who does not have "endorsers", but they're Board Top Notchers or has an average of 83 and up..

    anyway Good Luck..
