    Hi, to all who are asking about the name of our agency... I'm sorry to say this but I recently asked my supervisor if they are still accepting applications for reliever nurses but she told me not they're on freeze hiring right now. Maybe that's the reason why those people whom I know applied also wasn't called up for interview.

    hi guys! Speaking of companies do you guys know any good companies hiring nurses right now? I have been training for a year in a government hospital and I really would like to try another setting since mostly all hospitals are on freeze hiring. Thank you for those who'll respond!

    That's true. But you can be hired even if you don't have the BOSH yet provided that you will be able to have it not later than 6mos. from the start of your work. But, to tell you the truth, I don't have it yet. And i'm still planning to take it this year. I've been working for 1 yr. as a company nurse already. Our agency doesn't require us to take the training. so sad. :-(

    Im not sure with the BOSH by DoLE w/c is 3+K and that one offerd by OHNAP-DOLE w/c costs 8+k w/c they say is specifically for nurses. I find it very expensive knowing that the onefor 3+k is a 5 day training, and the 8+k is a 6 day training. hmmm??? is there something fishy in that? anyway,O'm just wondering.
    hi medic28! where are u now? are u from Sacred Heart College,Lucena City???

    the law requires nurses who wants to work in an occupational health settings to get atleast 40 hours of post graduate training course on occupational health nursing (Basic Occupational Safety and Health Course for Nurses).
    That is not true. Book 4, Section 6 (B) of the Omnibus Rules Implementing the Labor Code states that the occupational nurse must have passed the examination given by the Board of Examiners and duly licensed to practice nursing in the Philippines and preferably with at least fifty (50) hours of training in occupational nursing conducted by the Department of Health, the Institute of Public Health of the University of the Philippines or by any organization accredited by the former.

    "Preferably" meaning that the training is most wanted or preferred, but not necessarily mandated. Plus, it's 50 hours and not 40.
