    c. will you be included in the pool of nurses after the training?
    d. can anyone confirm this >>> the nursing staff there were abusing the BST trainees some says they were scolded in front of patients and students etc

    thank you

    I don't think so...well at first you get informed that the top 10 in BST ranking will get hired eventually...after 9months to a year after the training, this is based on the experiences of the staff nurses there who told me during our training...but based on my own experience, it's disappointing because after working so hard, getting a perfect attendance and doing a great job and finally landing a place in the top 10 spots available for hiring out of the hundred or more trainees competing for slots...I still wasn't called up after more than a year of waiting...i had my training last 2009. none of my batchmates who got in the top 10 slots were called up either. And if you call to follow up your application, they just pass you around, saying the copy of applicants for your batch is not with them...so sad that this is happening to aspiring and qualified nurses here in the Philippines.

    but I can say the training is good, everything is hands on...it was a great learning experience, you get to feel like a staff nurse because you work alone of course with the staff's supervision but they allow you to do everything...the rumor about staff abusing the trainees is not true...the staff there are very nice people, they teach you and guide you if there is a question or something you don't know...there might be a few overly strict personnel but that's probably because they care for the patients welfare. i heard that the rumor started because some of the trainees were lazy and blamed the staff for passing the work to them, but the truth is you wanted to train there that's why you get patient assignments...so don't complain if you get stuck with 10-12 patients with a couple of them on an hourly monitoring which basically takes up all your time...just work on it and stop complaining.

    i just called up LCP last day and said that they are no longer accepting applicants for FEB 2011. The next batch will be on April 2011. They said that they will be accepting requirements on the last week of Feb (i dont know the exact date) for the April 2011 batch. Or better yet, you can inquire there also for more details.

    I understand that IVT is required for lung center's BST.

    But do they require the IVT to have been done in Lung center as well? Because I had my IVT at heart center. My BLS is at heart center as well. Will they accept that?

    HI. I am currently having my BST Training here at LCP. So far, I am having the time of my life! They are all very accommodating.

    About your question on IVT. What they will require you is to have IVT & BLS Cert. & ID card. Even if you got your IVT training from other hospitals, they will still accept it as long as it is still VALID.

    I had my BLS training at Heart Center.
    IVT training in Muntinlupa.

    Just complete all the requirements, pass the medical exam, and then you will be asked to pay for the BST Training thats is!

    It won't do you any harm if you will bring your BLS certificate when you pass your requirements. And I think it is really required. I will have to check on tuesday. I'll get back to you.
