    The CNEP is different from the 6-month Advancement Program in Clinical Nursing (APCN) which is offered for registered nurses who want to gain clinical experience at the Philippine General Hospital.

    I'm not sure about it but what I know from other nurse applicants is that undergoing training at the PGH does not guarantee you a slot in the Nurse Proficiency Exam (NPE). My girlfriend who has undegone the 6-month APCN training last year still had to queue early in the morning at the DNRD office just to submit her requirements and get the much coveted slot for the NPE.

    In my own experience, I had to queue at around 5 in the morning at the PGH lobby just to get a slot for the submission of requirements.

    After submission of requirements, an applicant should pass the NPE and then be scheduled for a panel interview. If she/he passes the panel interview, then she/he must wait for the final interview with the Deputy Director of Nursing Services. After that, he/she becomes part of the manpower pool and waits for deployment

    hi i just want to know if IVT was included in the APCN program or do i need to have a license as a requirement.thanks

    @ harmitch 08... the IVT is not included in the APCN training... yes you will need your license for the application ( to get a dean's form)... by the way the deans form had been distributed last oct. 5... they only give it on date they scheduled...

    Hmmm I just joined their thread in yahoo groups. According to the announcement, the recruitment process for nurse applicants has been halted because the DNRD is streamlining the recruitment process for nursing personnel. They're hopeful that the recruitment process will be continued by January next year.

    Reading the thread, I also found out that 250 nurses for manpower pooling are still being considered for hiring since 2008 and just last September, they accepted 100 new applicants for NPE after 2 years.

    I'm getting a better glimpse of how tedious the application process in PGH is. Geez I may need to look at some other options for now & take any opportunities for landing a job there in the future.
