    Usually, RN Residency Training comes in two batches—one for August and another for Feb. I am just not sure if there had already been changes for the past years. The exam mentioned can be described as part of the screening process compromising 2 stages Qualifying exam.

  2. Interview

    The results of exams can already be released in 2 weeks time and then interviews are done afterwards. If the results are positive with both the exam and interview, that’s the time, you’ll be asked to pass the requirements.

    This is just an fyi
    Currently, AFPMC or V Luna Med Center isn’t hiring any nurse. Please do not take the RN residency program in the hopes of being a contractual or staff nurse. This is a government hospital so this hardly applies: “Afterwards, you can proceed to contractual depending on your performance during the whole period. ” (if you get what I mean)
    We know you guys won’t be payed for the 6 months that you will perform as staff nurse. Salute to you guys. Please know that the 1 month of didactic training/ lectures won’t be counted on the 6 months. So this is basically 1 month lecture + 6 months of working as a staff nurse = 7 mos. Also, no certificates will be released unless you complete the 6 months performing as a staff nurse (ojt) plus one case presentation.

      Ahem, balita q nga po wala po talagang allowance kahit food.
      Sana masolusyonan, na discouraged na po kc kami tumuloy. Mageexam na po sana kami ng mga batchmates ko.
      Eto mga cons na nabanggit samin:
      Masyadong pong matagal yung 6 mos na walang sahod
      Yung mga rn res mga utusan daw po. Plus ma pagmataas daw yung mga doctor niu.
      Magastos sa oras n money yung case presentation
      1 absent = 2 make up duty?
      No certificate unless completed n may case pres pa?
      Walang hiring? Palakasan system ba ibig sahihin niu? What pa po silbi ng exam, interview, and evaluation of performance kung ganon?
      Sana more than salute magawa niu.
      Sobrang discouraging. Siguro po next tym na kami tutuloy pag mas ok na condisyon dyan.
