    That is right thorabeech. Being included in the RN HEALS program in NCMH is one of the things I am very thankful about. I might need to find another job after the training as there isn't any guarantee of being absorbed there but I would wait patiently for my turn in PGH. I will be the happiest nurse by that time hehe.

    I guess, a new batch of APCN has already started their training last February. You will have to wait for months before DNET release another set of Dean's form, which they usually do around April and November. They will post the actual day of distribution on the bulletin board at least a month prior, so I recommend that you check on them once in a while. You can do so by visiting their office or calling them through phone. but I doubt that they could give you a definite date at the moment.

    JDSC's right. APCN lasts for 6 months the DNET usually announces when to release the Dean's forms shortly before or after the training ends. Calling them is advisable to avoid wasting time and effort. I wish someone can still post updates about the 2nd batch of APCN here just like what they did last time. If you guys would remember I only learned the exact date when DNET would release Dean's forms last November 2012 when somebody posted the update on the old PGH forum. You may also want to check this forum every now and then for news about it.

    Pray that you get SET B. I dunno but I found my NPE a bit easy. Anyways reading MS by Udan and Fundamentals of Nursing by Sia helped me a lot during the exam. It was a 33-item multiple choice exam so all you need to do is choose the answers wisely and read the questions and choices over and over to make sure you that you didn't miss anything and above all, PRAY.

    By the way mikeru22, can you remember some topics that were included?

    The set that I got included very basic topics like primitive reflexes, glasgow coma scale, & asepsis. I can't remember the other concepts but reading comprehensively will surely help.

    Questions would include funda and some MS concepts. The first half questions are easy and would only yield 1 point each.. However, I did had a problem answering the next half, which weigh 2 points each and requires your critical analysis and judgment.

    There are some items on basic anatomy (maximum bladder capacity) and physiology (where does a certain macronutrient is primarily absorbed/digested).. foods allowed or prohibited in specific diets (low purine diet).. which insulin to be aspirated first (Regular or NPH).. babinski reflex.. bloodborne illnesses (which instance will cause transmission).

    I can hardly remember most of the questions.. but I can say that it's a fairly challenging exam.. most of the 2-item points are very tricky and can be compared to NLE questions. I didn't even expect that I will pass on my first take for it was a year after I took the NLE, and I was having my training then so I failed to browse any review material.

    So I advise that you study well.. and during the exam, pray. I guess, the latter helped me in getting a barely passing mark.

    I'm scheduled for the panel interview on July.. still got a long way to go. Fortunately, I was recently hired as a probationary staff nurse in a tertiary hospital in Pasay. But, I'm still considering to work in PGH (if I pass), so I will go on with the process.
