Good news, nurses!
The Department of Health recently launched the Registered Nurses for Health Enhancement and Local Service Program (RN HEALS) and is currently needing 10,000 registered nurses to be deployed to different communities in the country.
The recruitment process of qualified nurses for the RN HEALS program will be handled by the Department of Labor and Employment and its regional offices. Nurses who pass the initial selection process will be required to undergo training to orient them to the roles and functions required by the program.
If chosen to participate in the RN HEALS Program of the Department of Health, a nurse will be receiving a monthly allowance of P8000. He or she will also be entitled to Philhealth and Government Service Insurance System group insurance. Other allowances from the Local Government Unit where the nurse will be assigned is also expected.
