DOH: NDP nurses to receive ₱29,000 in 2018

Nurses who will be hired by Department of Health (DOH) under the Nurse Deployment Project (NDP) for 2018 will receive salary of P29,000, according to Secretary Paulyn Jean Ubial.


In an interview over Manila Bulletin Online Hot Seat, Ubial said that the NDP nurses will receive higher salary due to third tranche of Salary Standardization Law.

"For nurses, [P29,000], that's the entry level. Then they have hazard pay and other benefits," she said. "That is why private hospitals are complaining that their nurses are transferring to DOH."

The NDP nurses this 2017 are receiving P26,878 monthly salary.



When asked about NDP regularization, Ubial said that they are proposing to Department of Budget and Management (DBM) that they become plantilla positions.

"But it is not 'tenured' or has security of tenure, meaning that it's for two-year period, to allow other health professionals to get learning experience from that employment," she added. "What we want is that before they go to specialization or masters or explore other career options, they should serve two years first at rural areas as part of their career development and learning."

"We don't expect them to stay there. There will be a fresh batch of graduates so that it's really part of our 'culture', just like in Cuba."




As initially reported, Ubial said that the Health department has proposed a budge of P9 billion for the hiring of around 25,000 new health providers to be deployed in grassroots level under the Human Resource for Health (HRH) deployment programs.

“We’re hiring varied professionals, doctors, nurses, midwives, dentists, pharmacists, med-techs...but the majority are nurses. Around 22,000 are allocated. Currently we have 15,000 nurse deployment program applicants and hires but in 2018, that will increase to 22,000. About 7,000 increase,” she added.

For doctors, around 500 will be hired in 2018 with monthly salary of P70,000 plus allowances and benefits.



Those who are interested may go to the nearest DOH regional offices and apply for their desired position. Hiring period is up to December, and deployment period will be from January to December 2018.

POEA warns OFWs on nursing jobs in Germany

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) advises overseas employment applicants to avoid a certain ‘Meine Agentur 24’ which recruits nurses and other healthcare professionals for supposed jobs in Germany without the proper authorization from the government.


Meine Agentur 24, in its website and Facebook page, lists its address in Leipzig, Germany but the Philippine Embassy in Berlin reported that the name of Meine Agentur 24 does not appear in the online registry of businesses in that country.

Also, the POEA has no record of Meine Agentur 24 in its database of accredited foreign employers.

In the website and Facebook page, Meine Agentur 24 advertises the need for workers in various disciplines in the field of nursing and other healthcare jobs and its offer of a qualification course for nursing staff to prepare them for employment in Germany.



Meine Agentur 24 charges applicants 5425 Euros supposedly for the cost of studying the German language and nursing school training.

In addition, applicants have to acquire their own visa and should have 5360 Euros in a bank account to cover the cost of their 20-month stay in Germany, including expenses for food, accommodation, clothing and transportation.

The POEA reminds applicants that the legal ways of landing a nursing job in Germany are either through the Triple Win Project or licensed Philippine recruitment agencies.

'Sexy Nurse Party' in Cebu irks nurses

Nurses all over the country are expressing their disgust to a karaoke bar in Cebu for holding a 'Sexy Nurse Party'.


La Bonita Cebu Japanese Karaoke Bar posted banners and ads inviting everyone to join their 'Sexy Nurse Party' this September. The bar located at 2nd Floor, The Forum at Archbishop Reyes Ave., Cebu City claims that it is the no. 1 karaoke bar in the Queen City of the South.

The ads caught the attention of advocacy group Nurses for Change Movement, which strongly expressed its frustration for the said event of the bar.

"SHAME ON YOU La Bonita Cebu Japanese Karaoke Bar! NURSES ARE NOT SEX OBJECTS! Where is the RESPECT for our noble profession? Nurses save thousands of lives everyday. We nurture new life being born. We aid the sick during their darkest times. And we ensure DIGNITY in their final moments. La Bonita, you have NO RIGHT to use our IMAGE!" the group posted in their Facebook page.



The group has called on nurses to flood the Facebook page of the bar with negative reviews.

Other nurses who have picked up the story online were also disgusted with the inappropriate use of their noble profession for such a shameful event.



"Aside from disrespecting the nursing profession, they can be sued for the misuse of the "red cross" symbol," a nurse commented.

The nurses are also calling the attention of Philippine Nurses Association (PNA) to do something about it. Nurses, what's your thoughts on this issue?

PRC-BON revises NLE subjects

The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) through Board of Nursing (BON) has recently made changes to the classification of subjects included in the Philippine nursing board exam.


Professional Regulatory Board of Nursing issued Resolution No. 11, series of 2017 entitled "Re-Classification of the Subjects Nursing Practice I and Nursing Practice II of the Philippine Nurse Licensure Examination (PNLE)" signed by July 13, 2017.

Currently, the NLE is composed of the five 100-item subjects, as follows:
Nursing Practice I: Basic Foundation of Nursing and Professional Nursing Practice
Nursing Practice II: Community Health Nursing and Care of the Mother and Child
Nursing Practice III: Care of Clients with Physiologic and Psychosocial Alterations, Part A
Nursing Practice IV: Care of Clients with Physiologic and Psychosocial Alterations, Part B
Nursing Practice V: Care of Clients with Physiologic and Psychosocial Alterations, Part C

Based on the resolution, the BON reviewed the components of Nursing Practice II and noted that "under the present PNLE framework, the scope and number of items allocated for Community Health Nursing and Care of the Mother and Child are not adequate to determine the competence of the beginning nurses in such component/areas of practice."



"The curricular content of each of these two (2) components (Community Health Nursing and Care of the Mother and Child) are so broad and extensive that they ought to be treated as separate and distinct component/area," the resolution stated.

After consulting stakeholders such as Association of Deans of Philippine Colleges of Nursing (ADPCN), the BON resolved to make changes and reclassify the subjects of the NLE. Here are the revisions:
1. The Nursing Practice I on Basic Foundation of Nursing and Professional Nursing Practice shall no longer be treated as separate and independent component of PNLE, but instead will be subsumed or integrated in all the PNLE examination subjects;
2. The Nursing Practice I shall be reclassified and renamed Community Health Nursing, and which shall be assigned with relative weight of twenty percent (20%);
3. The Nursing Practice II shall be reclassified and renamed Care of Healthy/At Risk Mother and Child, and which shall be assigned with relative weight of twenty percent (20%);

Classification and descriptions of Nursing Practice III, IV and V shall remain the same.




New NLE Subjects

Nursing Practice I: Community Health Nursing
Nursing Practice II: Care of Healthy/At Risk Mother and Child
Nursing Practice III: Care of Clients with Physiologic and Psychosocial Alterations, Part A
Nursing Practice IV: Care of Clients with Physiologic and Psychosocial Alterations, Part B
Nursing Practice V: Care of Clients with Physiologic and Psychosocial Alterations, Part C




The new NLE Subjects will be applied starting November 2017 NLE and succeeding schedules. Here's the full text of the Resolution:



What do you think of these changes in the nursing board exam? Please share this latest update especially to all November 2017 NLE takers.
