    Thanks for clearing that up devshop. I have forgotten that the scope of practice for registered nurses according to the Philippine Nursing Law does not include IV therapy. I'm surprised they have not changed that. I was also going by my experience at the Philippine General Hospital. We were allowed to insert IV's, give IV meds, and run blood transfusions there. In fact we (nurses) were way better than the residents and medicine interns when it came to inserting IV's in that hospital.

    What Suzanne was saying, however, is that these IV training seminars are not necessary if you plan on working in the US because the hospitals here will provide the opportunity to learn it as part of orientation.

    But I have a question to ANSAP or anyone who care to answer: If nurses there need to be trained in IV therapy because it's not part of their scope of practice, why do hospitals require this certification prior to being hired?

    I guess, I really know the answer to that question. You just have to accept things as they are without question. It is what it is -- the US is not the same as the Philippines.
    I'm really having a dilemma...in as much as I want to save my mom's precious money I need to take this IV therapy training. I want to work in tertiary hospitals here in the Philippines because I believe that this work experience will surely help me get hired as a USRN. In order for me to be hired in one of these "elusive" and "coveted" hospitals I need couple of certifications. I guess I don't have much of a choice here but to go with the flow!!!!

    Getting a job in a tertiary facility in the Philippines right now is almost impossible unless you know someone.

    Unfortunately, this is a well known fact. You would be much better off and further ahead to consider another country.
