    I will be moving to Canada soon as an immigrant. I'm a registered nurse in the Philippines, I will be graduating from my Master of Science in Nursing- medical surgical graduate course this year. of course i want to continue my career as a nurse in Canada. I understand that i will most probably had to take a bridging program in Canada for me to be able to qualify for the licensing examination (LPN/RN). im having some dilemma, I hope you can provide me some informations

    1.which one of my academic records will they be assessing? my BSN academic records or my MSN academic records which i believe also contains my BSN records.

    2. does earning a MSN in philippines will "somehow" help in anyway in qualifying for the examination or lessen the subjects that i have to study in canada?

    Thank you!

    hi tintin! when are you scheduled for interview?
    i think the interview is for the formality only ( hopefully) and also the head nurses will chose RN residents to be assigned at their respective area (e.g ICU, ER)

    hi there! is the hiring on-going? or is there a specific month where-in they will start the training? and do you get to have a certificate after or a chance to be hired permanently?
    To be hired as a staff nurse depends on your "backer"... you can go there on fridays and take the examination. there is no specific month, they'll tell you when your orientation is. yes, you will get a certificate after the training.

    Hi yourstruly. Did you pass your requirements there or are you finished with the training? May I know their requirements and where to apply (HR or Nursing Office)? Thanks in advance
    hi! Im still on my second month of the training..just bring you resume and school credentials, board rating certificate, board passing certificate, photocopy of PRC ID and IVT card ( if you dont have IVT yet, they conduct IV training too) Letter of intent addressed to the chief nurse, put all your documents in a long brown envelop, write your name on left upper side. but its ok if you don't have all the requirements because you can still submit it during your regular duty days..the process is pretty much easy and fast. I called them on thursday to inquire about volunteer nurse slot, they asked me to take the examination on friday, i was scheduled for orientation the following day then i started my ward rotation monday , you can pass your documents at nursing service office. SJMC is along n. domingo..Good luck

    hi guys! SAN JUAN MEDICAL CENTER is accepting nurse volunteers. it is for "free" well, there will be a 300 pesos facilitators fee. i think its reasonable enough compared to other hospitals that are charging thousands of pesos. it is a 6 months training, more on bed side care; VS q1, IV push, IV insertion, I&O monitoring etc..but only the staff nurses are allowed to do the charting! but you can always read the patients chart so that you can familiarize yourself with nursing documentation. SJMC nursing service office conducts examinations for nurse volunteers every Friday only, its all about fundamentals, calculations, pharmacology, dont forget to bring your resume and school credentials
