PIA Press Release

NARS program now accepting nurses to be deployed in rural areas

by SC Aro

La Trinidad, Benguet (21 February) -- In order to provide local employment as well as training to nurses, the government launched the NARS program or the Nurses Assigned in Rural Areas.

Department of Health -Manila Human Resources Development Bureau Director Kenneth Ronquillo said there is a shortage of experienced qualified nurses in the country due to fast turn over brought about by the demand abroad.

Ronquillo was the Keynote Speaker during the launching of the Healthy Lifestyle (HL) to the MAX in La Trinidad, Benguet held February 16, 2009.

Ronquillo said only those left in the country are the newly licensed nurses. Hence, the training and deployment program was launched to prepare them for employment not only abroad but likewise locally.

Center for Health and Development Cordillera Regional Director Myrna Cabotaje said nurses who will be hired will undergo a six-month training for both clinical and public health aspects. As an incentive, they will receive P8,000 monthly stipend, she added.

They will be deployed in 5,000 poorest municipalities in the country for the first batch and another 5,000 poorest municipalities for the second batch.

Cabotaje announced that the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) already started hiring online at February 20, 2009 for those who will be interested to avail.

After the training period, they will receive certificates of competency and completion. Only those who are found to be competitive based on assessment to look at the level of competitiveness will be awarded certificates of competency and completion. However, those who will be rated below the standards will receive certificate of completion. (PIA-Benguet) [top]
