i recommend D. PGH

it's a 6 months training program, you'll spend 10k. The money spent is worth it because you will encounter various cases and procedures which i haven't handled much during my college days. you will definitely learned a lot after 6 month training.

you'll be rotated in different areas 3 months on wards and 3 months on special area of your choice. Good luck! choose wisely!=)

APCN... but they do have a different application process if you want to be hired as a staff at PGH

Go with your hospital of choice, because that training will help you (somehow) to get in. And the training will help you tremendously to adapt to the workplace of where you plan to work in.

But if u just want to train for the sake of training. I guess PGH coz it's 6 months. I don't think heart center has a basic skills training program. Correct me if I am wrong.

Yep, coz, in Philippine Heart Center, they are only offering specialized training. Such as, Critical Care Nursing and CardioVascular Nursing.... no Basic Skills training at all

Hi to all. I would like to know if PGH is still accepting training programs. I'm still here in Brunei and will be back in the Philippines this April. I've heard that they have several requirements (like other hospitals) before you can undergo their Basic Training Skills. Kindly give me details for the following:

Training Program:

Training Fee:

Duration of the Training:

Thank you very much in advance to those who can provide me info. God bless
