    Sheateman: No, not yet. I had my panel interview last July 2011.. I'm hoping to have my final interview within this year and deployment maybe early next year. 3 years patiently waiting for the dream.

    OT: I am actually working abroad now, but I am willing to go back and work at PGH. The dream of working at PGH is still very much alive.

    Patience is a virtue. ^_^

    I do not mean any disrespect. But i'm just wondering why would you want to go back here in the philippines despite poor working conditions in the nursing profession. I admire you for your courage my friend.

    No offense taken @mistirdonat..

    I know it's impractical to go back there, but as I told in my previous post that it is my dream to work for them (most people who knows about my plan/decision, are also asking me the same question). I guess achieving my purpose and finally landing in a career where I am truly happy is more important to me.

    Financially speaking, I am trying to earn as much to secure my future during this period that I am still waiting for my final interview and deployment, so I won't worry about it if ever I will work for PGH in the future.

    I don't know exactly how long it takes but any time soon they will call you to undergo the medical examination/ PA then you're in. Congratulations in advance bleuler. You're just one step away from being a staff nurse @ PGH. Hmmm I have a question though, how long did take them to call you for ?the final interview, when did you have your panel interview?

    It has been a long and tedious process indeed but hey you're almost there. I feel really delighted thinking that although it really takes time to get in as a staff nurse at PGH, we surely have an equal opportunity to be evaluated based on our individual competencies and nursing prowess. I can say this because I am currently an RN HEALS Psychiatric Nurse trainee at NCMH. The sad thing is despite the remarkable credentials (I'm speaking not just for my self but also about a few people I know who have exemplary board rating and academic record), the Nursing Service couldn't guarantee us any slots for a staff nurse position simply because the backer system is so rampant that even the nursing service executives themselves are telling us that it really takes a really powerful backer to get in.

    Oh by the way, in my case I took the NPE in January 2012, had my panel interview in October of that same year. Looking at it, I would probably have my final interview on the last quarter of this year or on the first quarter of 2013.

    Yes, i think we really need to have tons of patience for this one.. Haha.. And i think it's much better if you got in without needing a "backer" because a different kind of sense of fulfillment will be there.. Haha.. Anyway, Godbless you in your pgh journey..
