DOH Terminated Nurse Volunteer Programs in DOH-Retained Hospitals

The Department of Health Secretary approved and released DOH-Memorandum 0238 terminating all "nurse volunteer programs" or any of its similar forms in all DOH-retained hospitals. This is also the result of our endless meetings in the AdHoc Committee to come up with a comprehensive report about this issue. 

I would like to thank all my colleagues in AYNLA who tirelessly gathered sufficient data to file to DOH when they needed it the most. My congratulations to our small success!

  3. What will gonna happen to us as a Volunteer Nurse? Because it will take us first to be a Volunteer or Nurse Trainee to be a Nurse Staff on Private Hospital :(

  4. if those who have experienced being a volunteer find it hard to have or find their jobs what more those who will not have their volunteer experience!?

  5. Next the government should create more jobs and job opportunities for people. Government officials always have this notion that they're flock of birds always get the best worms and its true when you look at the backer2x principle being propagated here in the back lands. I can't speak for the urban areas but in the provinces we see this happening.

  7. dis is for the good..@least hospitals will be forced to hire more new staff nurses..volunteer nurses has more jobs and face more risk when in duty compare to staff nurses..halos lahat ng trabaho binigay na sa mga volunteer....mga volunteer di naman ma hire kac walang backer and hospitals are not hirng kc maraming nagvolunteer....it's frustrating, to be honest...mga staff nurse dependent na sa mga volunteer, trabaho nila ibinigay na sa nurse and utos pa ng utos....it's hard to be a volunteer nurse, wala pa nga sahod, wala pa libre food pati tubig bayad din...go go go ..only the pinas has dis program volunteer nurse maski 4 years ka ng volunteer, volunteer ka parin...kakapagod...and overseas are nt accepting applicants who are not staff nurses, excluded ang mga volunteer....dapat stop na ang volunteer so that hospitals will be complied to hire additional staff nurse...go go go!

  8. oo nga at mawawala na ang volunteer pero pano nga naman ung di makapasok sa mga government or private hospital as staff nurse kung wala silang malalakas na "POLITICAL BACKER" especially kung under ito ng provincial or local government.
    on the other hand, kahit may backer ka na pano ka pa ring mahaha hire kung nakatira ka sa place na ang congressman o mayor eh kaalitan sa pulitika ng GOVERNOR nyo. Hindi bat napaka unfair. Dapat kung ipapatupad ang batas na yan na nagbabawal sa mga VOLUNTEER NURSES, isipin muna kung paano maaalis ang mga LINTANG nakaupo sa gobyerno. This is by experience.
    Ito ay para sa lahat lalo na kay Mr. PRESIDENT.

  12. This is a nice move from DOH. It's a small step, but a step to the right direction. Kudos to all who made this possible.

    P.S.

    Your interjection "alas" seems inappropriate. Did you mean "at last"?

  13. dapat ang iterminate lang nila ung mga hospital n may bayad. sayang naman kasi ung experience na makukuha sa mga hospital na hindi naman nagpapabayad

  14. paano pa po kya sila maghahire ng bagong nurses kung sa ngayon nga understaffed dahil sa kakulangan ng pundo ng gobyerno para sa health sector.

  15. Paano na binayad ko na 10,000 pesos sa National Kidney and Transplant Institute as nurse trainee for 4 months? Kakastart pa lang ng program ng September. Siguro naman hindi na papakialaman ni DOH Dr. Ona to since he works here.
