PIA Press Release

DOLE now accepting applicants online for 2nd batch of NARS program

by Rachelle M. Nessia

Dumaguete City (June 11) -- The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) here has announced that online applications for the second batch of the Nurses Assigned for Rural Service (NARS) is now being accepted.

In a recent Kapihan forum held by the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) here, Atty. Jose Ogang said that applicants can now register online for the second round of implementation of the NARS program.

Around 190 nurses were hired for the first batch of the NARS program here and they have already been deployed in their assigned towns and cities on April 2009 with their stint ending on September 2009.

Five nurses have been assigned in each of the local government units in the province except for Bacong, Sibulan and Dumaguete City.

DOLE Central Office in Manila identified the LGUs that will benefit from the NARS program, said Ogang.

The labor official explained that NARS is under the Comprehensive Labor Emergency Employment Program (CLEEP) of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo which aims to protect the country's most vulnerable sectors from the effects of the global economic crisis by providing emergency employment and funding and supervising livelihood projects.

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo launched the NARS project on February 9 this year.

Under said projects, rurses will be deployed at an average of 5 per town in the 1,000 poorest municipalities, for a six-months tour of duty. Another batch will be deployed for the second half of the year.

Completion of the training program under NARS shall be considered as a substitute for the work experience requirement of hospitals and other health facilities, both local and overseas with DOLE.

While on training, nurses will be given a stipend/allowance of P8,000.00 per month, which may be increased if the host LGUs will offer its own financial counterpart. (PIA/rmn) [top]
