RN Heals or AFP RN Residency

Posted

Hello nurses. I am so confused right now. I applied in RN Heals and passed as well as in AFP RN Residency and both will start next year. If you are in my situation, what will you choose?

If i were you, i'd choose Rnheals, basically because it has a stipend for u to use, unlike in AFP Residency. i had also undergone that program of AFP. :)

Hello iampinaynurse! Thanks for replying. What can you say about the AFP RN Res.? Is it worth the 6 months? What are your chances to be a staff nurse in AFPMC after?

hello! what is the AFP residency program? care to share?

My 7 months there in AFPMC was great and really worth the wait. Though chances of being hired after the program is quite 50-50 since you have to have a padrino to support you. Haha. I think it really matters in that institution. But then the experience is really amazing since you will be treated a staff nurse there, the only difference was you don't have salary compared to their employees.

I got a certificate stating that i worked there as a staff nurse under the RN-Residency Program of the AFPMC-VLGH. My ward assignments and number of hours were also included in the certificate. The word "training" was never mention. :)

heloo! how to apply for AFP RN residency?thank you :)

I'd choose RN Heals. :D It's one year worth of experience and I will be receiving monthly stipend. Then after my training, if ever I am not absorbed by the institution I trained with in RN Heals, I will go through the screening for AFP residency again. :D

Hello iampinaynurse. When did you have your training in AFP Residency program? May I know who is the Chief Nurse of AFP as of now? I don't know who to address in the application letter. THanks :)

Hi people. Im actually undergoing the training at afpmc right now. There's a qualifying exam on may but if you have a backer, even if you dont pass the exam, i even know some people who didnt took the exam. Just the interview. Im fortunately one of those who doesnt have a backer. :) just go there and if you pass the exam you will then be advised to complete the requirements.

Too bad, I took that bloody exam 2 years ago and was very discouraged because I didn't make it but God has a different plan for me. :D Good luck nurses.

Yay, I would love to but I am currently deployed as a psychiatric nurse trainee at NCMH under RN HEALS which means that I can be given an item (staff nurse position) within or after the 1-year training. I would definitely opt to stay working at NCMH given that opportunity. :D

May I know the requirements for applying with NCMH's Psych Nursing Training Program? When does it usually start and do you have any tips that would help ease me into the program? Appreciate any reply.
