Most private hospitals have about the same standards for the things you mentioned. During my application at St Luke's (2005), training fee was around P4000, training duration was one month split into didactics and clinicals. Contract was one year.

I think they had it changed now to three months training, which is good so you get to familiarize yourself with the routine. Contract is now for two years.

Also, St Luke's is JCI accredited so the practice is pretty much how it is done in most US hospitals. Schedule is still 8 hours, although most units are starting to have it for 12 hours, i.e., 7am to 7pm due to understaffing.

THe Medical City - JCI Accredited

During my time, just last year, there is no single fee on trainings.

You will be attending the Human Resources dept. training for corporate/service architecture for 2 weeks.

Then under the Nursing Service Office/Clinical trainings for

2 weeks or more. You will be exposed to the floor.

Schedule of duty is an 8 hours shift.

Salary is just within the industry. =)

And before I forget, there is a 2 year contract.

just wanted to know.. how much are hospitals paying now here in the PI? i learned from a friend that nurses' salary is only 8k in st. luke's.. is this true?? no wonder most graduates prefer to work in call centers since the pay would be double that amount for newly grads.. this is one reason why most nurses go abroad instead of sharing their knowledge and skills here... tsk!

Probably they will credit you nursing experience for 5 years. Though I can assure you will undergo orientation but not training. Goodluck! Where in the middle east did you work?

Orientation is really expected but I'm just worried that hospitals will require me to undergo training (and that I will have to pay for that training!). Thank's a lot! I'm here in KSA btw.
