There is a directive that lowered the height requirement from 5'2 to 5'0 (for females). So you are qualified. Im only 5'1'' and i passed the screening.
Im not sure in the Males if they lowered it.
There is no specific date or scheduled of the qualifying exam . After, you are screened you will be notified thru text when is your schedule.
When you enter the Nurse Corps you CANNOT choose which branch of service(Army, Air force, navy, marines) you would like to go. I attended the seminar about military nursing in our school last year and the resource speaker is the current Chief Nurse, AFP. I asked her if we can choose a branch of service in the NC. She said no and that you may be assigned in the different branch of service. So be prepared. Anyways, we are health professionals our services must not have boundaries.
Hope this helps...GODSPEED!!
- 0Jun 11, '11 by harrydudeI already took the exam on the same day I submitted my credentials. It was very difficult. What concerns me is that i was given the 100 point exam instead of the 35-point exam even though i have a 83.8 board rating. I think I will fail the exam. Maybe I cant reach the score of 80 which is the passing score. They already had disclosed me that there'll be no retake in case i failed. They will just inform me of the result three weeks after the exam thru text. To those who took the exam, did you experience the same? how long did you wait for the result?
If you are from the province you can get the exam immediately. You should bring "pasalubong". Sometimes it helps as they claim. And you must indicate if you are a military dependent in your resume which I failed to do so..
im keeping my fingers crossed. i hope i will receive the result by next week.

Here in the states they have the "Don't ask, don't tell" policy, do they have the same kind of tenet in the philippine army?
