    @GIGIE: So long as you pass the training with a grade of 85/88%(forgot the exact grade). Attendance is one big factor to that criteria. Once you were able to complete and pass the required rating, you will be listed in their pooling. The process is like this:

    1. Completed training with passing rate
    2. Wait for 6+ months to be called to start as a "FLOATER NURSE". It is paid but it is different to "PROBATIONARY NURSE". You can have another training while waiting (special areas)
    3. 5 months of being a "FLOATER NURSE" you will now be promoted to "PROBATIONARY NURSE"
    4. After the regular 6 month probationary period, you will now then be regularized.

    The chance is so HIGH. So long as you perform well. My friend did well there during her training last June 2012. She is now an OR Nurse there as she specialized OR after the regular training.

    The advantage that after you completed their basic training - ALL are in WARDS only, you can have another training for SPECIAL AREAS (ER,OR,ICU[?]) while waiting for the 6+ months before they call you.

    Plus, having the training here according to them, once you are hired there, you will have a future. As Phil Orthopedic Center's privatization and man power pooling of applicants will be managed by World Citi. But it will be after 2 years. LOL. They just gave us a positive insight of what future we can have I we have our training there. But, it is a long time. :P

    Anyway, I hope I gave you enough answer to your query.

    How is the interview process like? When they ask about nursing procedures, do they expect you to give a detailed answer? Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thank you!

    @Gigie. Supposedly, I will be part of the July29 training. However, there will be another opportunity for me that I can have without paying any training fee.

    @KFM: The interview is easy. I don't know if because I am used to attending different job interviews way back when I was a call center agent. It will be a simple one-on-one interview. But 2 interviewers share one room for interviewing applicants. The chief nursing supervisor plus the assistant chief nursing supervisor will do the interview. For my experience, personal and work-related questions were asked. For others, they were asked some basic nursing skills. It will depend on the interviewer's mood. My tip for you is to prepare a basic skill that you can explain well and answer possible questions related to it.

    @gigie. I just got lucky to have this possible training in a local hospital in my place though it is a tertiary hospital. It just happened that I knew they will have opening for training this coming Aug as I had my IVT training there. If I don't have other option, I will grab World Citi. Just pray hard I can feel lots of hosp will open training this coming months. I can go back to World Citi once I didn't have a chance to be absorbed here as I have successfully passed the application process already. I just need to pay the fee and wait for another training period to start.

    I had my interview today. It was easy. They just asked about my previous work and training experience. I decided not to push through with the july 29 batch. The training costs P5,500 for 6 weeks and 3 days. 1 week lecture, 3 days breastfeeding seminar, and 5 weeks exposure in ward areas only. After that, there will be a final exam and oral revalida. You have to earn an average of at least 88% to qualify for their advanced nurse training. The advance training is for 3 months although you will have to choose only ONE special area (e.g. strictly ER exposure throughout the 3 mos period). I think there is an additional fee for that.

    I won't be pursuing this july batch. I'll check out other hospitals too. If not, I can be a part of their September batch and just pay the training fee & submit the other credentials listed. No need to go through the exam and interview process.

    They are still accepting applicants I think and the preceptors informed us that they conduct the interviews daily. The staff are very approachable and kind so don't hesitate to ask questions should you decide to train in their hospital.

    Oh and by the way, they also informed us that in 2 years time World Citi would be merging with Philippine Ortho. The chances of being absorbed are high as long as you belong to the Top10 in your batch.

    You will receive 2 certificates at the end of your Basic Nursing Training. Certificate of Completion and the other is for the breastfeeding seminar.

    Hello guys permission to meddle pls? Im a 2008 grad took the NLE in June same yearand eversince then i nevr really had an opurtunity to practice nursing. Rightafter exams i hoppd from one job to another and yes, im one of those bedazzled by the handsome paying call centers. In between jobs however i tried to do volunteer training in a regional hospital in my province upnorth. Its a shame though that i didnt even last a week because my forst rotation was in the blood bank so i got really bored. That was the last time i ever stepped into a hosptal as a nurse. Then i decided that nursing wasnt gona do me any good so i went back to the bPo. But this year i took the NClex, took ielts the second time since it expired already now im procesing my visa screen in super high hopes that i could also have a taste of that "american dream". Thats my story. Too much for an intro eh? Sorry i just thought everyone has to espcially for a new member joining the discusion.

    5 years after i turned my back on nursing, im trying to get back on track since i feel like ive been stuck in the house for quite some time now.(and i have this gut feeling that my mom is rather annoyed with it lol).

    Since this thread has not been updated for a while, I would just like to know what your current status are? Is world citi a nice hospital? When is the next batch?

    Hope to hear from any of you. Thank you.
