inactive nurse

  1. This is my first time here. I am wondering if there are other nurses who are not practicing right now. I'm a full-time mom and a freelance 'ghost' writer. I think it's difficult to go back in the nursing practice since I'm not getting any younger. Any other nurses who faced a situation like mine? Is it difficult to go back after years of dormancy?

    with regards to the PGH training. I was wondering if you have heard about the volunteer work in PGH? They say, aside from the 6 mos. training, they have this "levelling program?" which offers a flexible schedule. Something like: completing certain hours to go from level 1 to level 2 etc.

    You need a refresher program put on by a reputable school. These training programs do not give you experience in anything.

    A volunteer position does not give you credit in terms of any actual work experience, it does not count towards that.

    Do you still hold a current license to practice? That would be my first question, without that; there is no way to go any further.

    hello! sorry for not replying for a very long time. I didn't inquire at PGH because it's a 2 hours travel from my place. I was informed by a friend that you can have a training in NKI (national kidney institute) and PHC (Philippine heart center) with a fee. What I can remember is you have to pay an amount of 4-5k, and the training is for about 2-3 months. If you are looking for experience, you can try that. If you are looking for just information or seminars, then you can inquire at hospitals near you for seminars. I hope this helps. My apology again for this late reply.

    Hello Yanalyn! Sorry for this late reply, I was not able to log in here for quite some time. If you want a training, a friend advised me to inquire at NKI (national kidney institute) and PHC (Philippine heart center). They give 2-3 months training, but you have to pay some fee for that, if I remember right it costs about 4-5k. If you only want seminars, you can inquire at hospitals near you, some of them gives seminars for nurses every now and then. I hope this helps. Again, my apology for the late reply. Nice to meet you here.
