DOH to deploy 13,500 nurses for NDP 2015

The Department of Health (DOH) intends to employ 13,500 nurses to identified poor communities under the Nurse Deployment Project (NDP) in 2015.

Update 10/22/2014: DOH NDP 2015 application updates.

NDP is the DOH project that sends nurses to communities identified by National Anti-Poverty Commission. Previously named as RNHeals, the accepted nurses were given P18,000 monthly salary.

The increase in number of nurses for NDP was one of the projects tackled in budget briefing of the health department in Congress on September 4. This 2014, the employed nurses for NDP program is only at 11,000.

Aside from nurses, DOH will also increase the numbers of doctors from 319 to 398 and also will deploy 2,700 midwives (RHMPP) and 480 dentists to poor and vulnerable areas.

Last year, CHD offices handled the recruitment and selection of NDP applicants which started in November.
