    IVT Case Completion concern..

    wow.. Its sad to know that such things happen. I just have to agree on what you said, maybe you should have been more ASSERTIVE and told them that they should have let you do it on your own, respectfully of course. Thats what I did when I completed my cases, they would not let me handle the patients for insertion unless I ask them if i could do it ( under their supervision of course ). Luckily I learned the techniques from these people. :) Im much more confident regarding my IVT skills because of this. Goodluck to you.
  3. aww, so sorry to hear that...its been 6 months? wow, just like my situation here in the Philippines.. have faith ma'am, Im sure you'll be hired real soon. :up: I DO have a question though...:D I AM planning to become a USRN.. will probably apply for the state of new york/Texas. I have read repeatedly in this site that it will take about 5 years to have a CHANCE at a visa, and that's okay with me. I plan on working in other countries ( Australia/ New Zealand) first to gain experience during that 5 year wait... after all, I really plan to migrate in the US in the distant future because almost my whole clan is already there... LOL. Question is, if I sit and hopefully pass the NCLEX by 2010... any issues I should know regarding renewal of license in the said states? (during the said 5 year wait) I dont know if its a good plan. An uncle of mine who is an RN at Texas told me to take the NCLEX already "just to get it out of the way". Furthermore, I've read somewhere that the longer the time from graduation from nursing school that you take the NCLEX, the greater the failure rate. This scares me, thank you so much for answering this,,, this site has been very much helpful! :up:

    Nurses & Nursing Students Working In Hospitals In The Philippines

    Charting is done in English... (except for the subjective data when the patient speaks in his dialect) Ahm in the hospital we converse in Tagalog, with the fellow nurses and doctors ( well except for the Indian intern,, there's no difficulty speaking to him in English though.). And of course when conversing with the patient it depends on what language he (and you) can communicate better ( i had to learn Ilocano for my patients who cant express themselves in Tagalog.. ) why do you ask?
  8. hey guys! im just wondering if you know any hospitals in Olongapo who are currently taking in nurses for Volunteer experience? without needing to pay of course..ehe. :) thank you so much! :)

    Hiring nurses in Philippines

    hi guys! maybe this is the wrong thread.. but I passed my resume and got interviewed at SAcred HEart Hospital at Angeles. They said they will be having a Volunteer/Training program for free, 3 months in duration. The people there are VERY VERY accommodating... :) there;s no date yet as to when they would start this, since the hospital just opened last month and they only have 16 applicants for the volunteer program during that time. So I told the HRD that I'll share the good news.

Thank You so much. :loveya:

    Hospitals Open for Hiring

    i went to makati med and st.lukes ( e. rod) last week, they're not open for hiring as of the moment. They even have signs on the door of their HR department which says "we are not hiring staff nurses" blah-blah..

    PGH feedback

    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. Long, tedious process of waiting...waiting...waiting... ohhhh. okay thank you for this! appreciate your reply. patience is REALLY a virtue then.

    UP-PGH 4-month training course

    i came upon this news and i am very much interested.:heartbeat:heartbeat "the division of nursing education and training (dnet) of the university of the philippines - philippine general hospital (up-pgh) announces their 8th clinical nursing enhancement program (cnet). the 4-month (august 24 to december 4, 2009) training program is open for registered nurses who have limited and/or not actively practiced the profession for five (5) consecutive years." from http://nursingpad.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2009-07-18t00%3a01%3a00%2b08%3a00&max-results=6 and since there is a training fee of 5thousand pesos, i was wondering if this would be worth it? or would i just wait for the hospitals with free trainings to have a slot for me? anyway i am hoping someone working pgh would enlighten us with this.. and if this would become an advantage if there would (miraculously!) be an staff nurse hiring at pgh. thank you...!! all opinions are welcome and would be highly appreciated.. :nurse:
