Nursing is the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations.

President Arroyo’s NARS Program Brings Job Openings and Training Opportunities to Filipino Nurses.

We applaud the Philippine government’s effort to launch a new job employment and training program for the Filipino nurses that is surely win-win situation for all parties involved.

President Arroyo recently announced that about 5,000 Filipino nurses will be deployed to serve as nurses to those in needs. The target beneficiaries are the poorest municipalities which will receive at least 5 assigned Pinoy nurses each.

We said this is a win-win situation for the Filipino nurses that will be benefiting from this because the government is not only trying to give employment money (about P8,000 per month) to those in need but also give opportunities for the Pinoy nurses to train in real hospital work in preparation for the eventual work abroad. Most employers abroad require nurses to have work experience before they accept them.
