E. Visayas awaits nurses under jobs program Philippine Inquirer 3/18/09

Over 500 registered nurses, including those who recently passed licensure tests, would land a job in Eastern Visayas under the national government’s Project Nurses Assigned in Rural Service (Nars).

Project Nars is designed to mobilize 10,000 unemployed registered nurses as “warriors for wellness” to 1,000 of the poorest towns in the country to improve the delivery of health care services for six months, according to Department of Health (DOH) assistant regional director Dr. Minerva Molon.

The nurses will initiate primary health, school nutrition, and maternal health programs; first line diagnosis; inform communities about water sanitation practices and also do health surveillance; and immunize children and mothers.
