Especially if my mom comapres me to her "amigas" children... She usually tells me how come *beeep* is in training howcome ure not.... little things like that. Its not like im not trying. And i just think how many people wants to be in my place . I just wanna share this lol The main thing i wanna ask is where THE **** can i start training.... Ive applied to hospitals but with no luck at all. Can you guys tell me where's the a good place to train? BTW i lice at Quezon City near mindanao avenue

Same thing happened to me (except the IV thing), and same batch too. ^_^.. Even up to now, I never got into training. Though untrained, I applied for a hospital just last year just to push my luck, without any training or whatsoever. Tough luck, I was able to start from scratch. It is really hard to get into a hospital. Connections are now obsolete since everybody got connections inside a hospital (unless they own it). If you are from QC (as where I am now) you may try going St. Lukes (for Global City), they are still hiring nurses. If you got money, you might as well try for Heart Center, Lung Center or Kidney Center (if with connections). Some of my friends took EMT at PNRC and finished the course and went off to Singapore. Some took risk going out of the country.

There are lots of hospitals around QC. You might try looking from the ones nearest Mindanao Avenue (training/job): Montano Ramos (Mindanao Ave and Bago Bantay), JP Sioson (Bago Bantay), VMMC, QC Gen (inside Gami)

Novaliches Area: Nova Gen, Bernardino General Hospital

E Rodriguez/Q Ave area: UDMC, De Los Santos STI, SLMC (the one for Global City since QC is on freeze), Childrens Hospital, Fe Del Mundo, Capitol Med(Quezon Ave)

Kamuning: Delgado

same goes with me.. Im also a June 08 board passer and I just recently noticed that it was already 9 months have passed and still I am unemployed. It was really so depressing that we spend a lot of money (for our tuitions, uniforms, allowances, expensive books, paraphernalias and review expenses) for us to be able to become RN and now we made it but here we are now -- unemployed. I already have my 3 months volunteer training here in one of the tertiary hospitals in my province but It was still not enough. I applied to different job postings abroad but ended up rejected because I don't have the required years of experience they needed. And just like you, I felt pressured and sometimes annoyed by what my parents are implying to me but I can't do anything. :banghead: What I can suggest to you is you can send applications to different hospitals there in manila ( near or far to your place, you really need to invest time, money and effort) and patiently wait for their response and while waiting for it, don't let time pass you by doing nothing productive. You can attend nursing seminars/trainings that will add up to your qualifications/skills because one day these will help you a lot. Don't lose hope or even let thoughts of quitting empower you, just always keep in mind that the right time for the right opportunity for you will come.

I just want you to know that we are on the same boat, but those advice I gave you is what makes me going despite of all the difficulties I have now in searching for a better career as a nurse.

Just always remember, you're not alone dude!!:wink2:

The most important thing that should be used (that we learned during our BSN days) is patience.. We never know when will our time to shine be so do not lose any hope in you.

to johncfRN:

Try Quirino Memorial Medical Center in project 4...Just pass the following:

Letter of intent addressed to Dr. Rosalinda Arandia (Medical Center Chief II)

PRC ID or claim stub

Board rating

Resume

Diploma/Certificate of Graduation

TOR

NBI/ Police clearance

Pass these at the Office of Special concerns. Just ask the guard where it is. Days of submission are Tuesdays and Thursdays only, if I remember it right. When you pass your requirements, they'll immediately schedule you for an exam. Pass it right away because they only have limited slots...

Volunteer on private/public clinics, as a school nurse or look around for medical missions while waiting to get accepted for a job. There are tons of nursing seminars as well.

^^

the problem with that WINDOW M of POEA is that they only accept FEMALE NURSES. ive tried to submit my credentials last september but unfortunately they dodnt accept my resume.

im also a june 2008 passer and i knew the situation here in the philippines that's why the week after i got the result of my exam, i applied to 18 hospitals!!! 3 of those hospitals called me up for assesment/interview. then 1 hospital accepted me as a volunteer for october-december last year and last january, that hospital hired me as an ER nurse. i lost my phone last december so the other 2 hospitals didnt get the chance to contact me for the follow up/result of my assesment.

my advise to all of you guys, work in a callcenter first while waiting for the hospitals to hire you. i know there are callcenters that dont hire nurses anymore but you just have to tell them that you didnt take the board exam. hehe

then take the BLS, IVT and ACLS training becuase most hospitals are requiring those trainings, especially the IVT and BLS

Is this negativistic? Or "Just" reality?

Work in a call center (remove the word "first") or any working place which accepts nurses not as nurses. This advice is not a negativistic approach. It's the irony of labor and business (Yes! Business!) here in the Philippines. Watching TV show, reading newspapers and listening to some talks on the radio made me conclude something. Just like my aunt dreams for me: "If I get rich, I'm gonna buy you your own hospital." If you're targeting hospitals here (at this point of time) and get hired, chances are 0.000001% , or maybe never (even with three inches thick of training/seminar certificates). I finally figured out why our college professors told us that nurses are "flexible" when it comes to looking for jobs. I didn't get the darkside of it. They already knew that this is happening, and yet they wouldn't give any warning.

Things to have for you to become a nurse in the country:

1. Above 1.75 GWA with above 1.75 in RLE

2. Connection with the board of directors / owner of the hospital

3. Money not exceeding P10,000 - 15,000 for necessary trainings (lunch and fare included)

4. Charismatic yet smart face, great complexion, with outstanding vital statistics.

(If this is mere exaggeration, so it is, but it may really be the real thing)

If you've watched Adyenda Saturday Morning (5AM) about 2009 graduates, you may feel empathic for our college and future RN's who are unemployed...

It was like this, the DOLE Secretary was the guest that time. The bottom line of the conversation was to redirect every graduate to any available job opportunity in the land., but has never given assurance that we will fall for the job that we really intend to do. Tragic, is it? Can we go abroad? And get experience there? Hey, is our 2 year duty in college an OJT? an internship?

Victims, one after the other, all 200,000 of us (or maybe more - including the retakers) It all started in a place called "school". I'm one of them. For a year, I've been a freelance computer technician, special school teacher, school nurse, PE instructor, and computer teacher and I trasure all those, not as work, but as worthy experiences.

It is not the recession to be blamed of why this happened, it is the rusty system of the government why everyone has been into this limbo. What we can do now it to pray hard to our dear God and let Him decide what is the best for us.

Irony, irony, irony.... sigh!

I am also a june2008 passer and just recently passed NCLEX and my parents well, maybe just my dad is just pressuring me to go get training in hospitals right away so I can immediately work abroad and finding one is really hard. Well, I guess we all have our issues with our parents but it is just so good to know that I am not alone here. Patience is really the key here guys. Btw,I'm finally going to have my technical interview at SLMC qc within this month I just hope and pray I will pass it *the hiring for global city has already stopped and applicants who passed already are for manpooling*.That would be another blessing for me and hopefully my dad will now be contented with what I have achieved but I doubt it if he would stop pressuring me..not until I'm out there making lots of dollars..Oh well, that's life..

Good luck to you guys..
