    @frituplus: okay, i'm a bit confused now, they have an erratic set of exam. I have an above 80 board rating but still i took the 100 items exam.. oh well at least i still passed it. yes, the desk officer there told me that i would probably be called next year, at the very least, because they are still processing the applications last year.. im training in vluna right now and i've asked those new military nurses about that and they've said that, yes, you will wait for a year or 2 before you are called. .

    @burlogsKING: no, when you submit the initial requirements, you will be first assess there by the desk officer if you are qualified to take the exam, if yes, you will be scheduled and you will be notified thru text..

    @johnjo: Thank you for that one. I appreciate your help. If you have any idea about the schedule of the qualifying exam for the next batch of trainees for the nurse residency program at East Ave Medical Center, kindly inform me here. I check this thread from time to time and as I have observed, your posts are really helpful. Keep that good attitude God bless.

    @rissaRN

    Requirement for AFP Nurse Corps (1 Original and 1 photocopy):
    -Resume (Original)
    *Please indicate in your resume if you are a military or civilian dependent (meaning if you are a son or daughter of a military or civilian personnel in the AFP)
    *Sign your resume at the end part
    -Diploma
    -TOR
    -Board Rating & Passing
    -PRC License
    -Birth Certificate

    *They will not get all your requirements. They will just review it to make sure it is real and not fake. After reviewing it they will return all your requirement and then they will ask you to log your name in their log book with your Cellphone No.
    *They will just text you for your exam schedule.
    *You should be 21 y/o when you apply. They will tell you to return back to them if you are still underage. In my case,i waited for my 21st bday then the following day i applied.
    *CORPORATE ATTIRE!!!they are very STRICT when it comes to the dress code (Females-SKIRT not pants or slacks!!!)
    *They accept applications anytime between 8am-5pm (don't go there during lunch breaks, around 12-1pm, it is very disrespectful)
    *Even if they told you to just wait for their text, it is still a good thing to go there or call them to follow up your application. So, if you apply there ask them if you can have the no. of their office so that you can follow up your application to them.
    *Feel free to go there and ask them some questions, all of the personnel there are very professional and they will attend to you for sure.

    Hope this helps!!!Goodluck with your application!!GODSPEED!!!

    The exam i took is a 100-item test. When i was screened, i was told that i will only take a 35-item test because of my board rating. I learned from others that when you have a board rating of below 80%, you will take the 100-item test while if you are above 80% you will take the 35-item test (Passing rate is 30). I was really confused when they gave me the 100-item test but i did not questioned it because all of us have the same exam.
    The 100-item test that i took was really hard for me. Coverage: Everything under the sun. All the questions came from different subject areas as far as i analyzed it, so you must really prepare. But it is a real advantage that i just took the July 2010 Board exams because some of the concepts is still fresh to me. 50 % of the exam is essay so do good at that part. There are computations but i don't know if you are allowed to use calculators so ask them if you may(In my case i did not use calculator). There are also critical thinking questions just like the ones we have in the board exam. I forgot to ask them the passing rate for that 100-item exam and how will they score the essay part, so i suggest that you ask them. You are applying for the Nurse Corps so expect that they have a very high standard for that exam.

    Well i hope this helps...GODSPEED!!!
